GP Bullhound advises eBECS on its investment by CSC

London, 16 November 2016 – GP Bullhound, the technology investment bank, acted as the exclusive financial advisor to eBECS on its investment by Computer Science Corporation (NYSE:CSC).

eBECS, Microsoft’s Country Partner of the Year in the UK, will join UXC Eclipse (Eclipse), the Microsoft practice within CSC. The combined global practice cements CSC’s position as the largest Microsoft Business Solutions integrator in the world.

UXC Eclipse and eBECS are both focused on delivering end-to-end business management solutions based on Microsoft technologies, including Microsoft Dynamics 365, and its range of business solutions, delivered on premise or in the cloud. Together, the depth of consulting skills and Microsoft Business Solutions experience will extend the reach of the CSC’s Microsoft practice across the United Kingdom, the Middle East, and nearby markets.

Sam Sammour, Chairman, eBECS, stated: “This is a truly exciting time for our customers, our team of professionals, and the Microsoft community. CSC’s culture, client-centric approach and maturity as a Microsoft Dynamics partner makes CSC an ideal fit for eBECS.”

Kevin Hall, Chief Executive Officer, eBECS, added: “Our customers will have the certainty of a long-term business partner to deliver a new era in customer service to the Microsoft ecosystem. Our partnership with CSC also extends our ability to offer our services worldwide as true Global Systems Integrators.”

Hugh Campbell, Managing Partner of GP Bullhound commented: “eBECS is a leader in the UK for integrating Microsoft cloud solutions. We are delighted to have worked with the eBECS team to bring on board CSC which will allow the company to consolidate its #1 position in the UK.”

This represents the completion of GP Bullhound’s 18th transaction in 2016 and further highlights the firm’s strong position in the IT services sector, having previously advised on the sale of Fjord to Accenture, CTP to Atos, Designit to Wipro, Emric to Tieto, The BIO Agency to Tech Mahindra, and Mobica to Inflexion, among others.
