Dallas, Texas (August 8, 2011) – StockGuru Shines its Spotlight on Midas Medici Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: MMED), an innovative green IT company in the fields of virtualization, cloud computing and data management, as well as Smart Grid solutions. The Company announced August 5, 2011, that it closed its acquisition of CIMCORP, a mid-sized and well respected integrator in Brazil’s IT market. Midas will host a conference call to discuss the acquisition on Tuesday, August 9, 2011 at 10:00 am EDT. The Company closed on Friday, August 5, 2011 at $1.73, trading on below average volume with a fifty-two week range of $4.50 – 0.30.
First announced in July, the acquisition of CIMCORP was closed in a part cash and part stock transaction. Midas acquired 60% of CIMCORP upon the initial closing, with the remaining 40% being purchased in two equal-sized tranches within the next 24 months. CIMCORP specializes in data center services with an emphasis on complex solutions that enable Brazilian companies to virtualize and implement cloud-based systems. The acquisition of CIMCORP, which has IT operations across Brazil’s national territory, will allow Midas to significantly expand its current IT offerings into South America. Midas is expected to infuse green IT into the CIMCORP customer base with its Consonus and UtiliPoint brands’ expertise, while also enjoying a boost to the consolidated company’s revenue streams. CIMCORP has built strong relationships with both government and commercial clients over the years, resulting in over 200 employees and revenues in excess of $84 million in 2010.
“On behalf of our management and Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce the closing of Midas’ acquisition of CIMCORP – truly a milestone event for our company,” stated Nana Baffour, CEO and Co-Founder of Midas. “This year we have consummated several major acquisitions, including Consonus, WeatherWise and EHFC. However our latest acquisition with CIMCORP takes center stage as we propel our IT service offerings with exciting new international initiatives, while immediately doubling Midas’ consolidated revenue generating capabilities. CIMCORP allows us to enter the fast-growing IT market in Brazil and Latin America as we look to leverage our new operations and develop new business prospects that wouldn’t be possible as separate organizations.”
As one of the fastest-growing major economies in the world, growth in Brazil is nothing short of outstanding, with GDP expected to grow by 5.9% a year until 2014 according to the Brazilian Finance Ministry. Over the next six years, Brazil will be transforming its cities as it gets ready to host the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016, spending substantial amounts on its infrastructure, including IT solutions to handle the demands of travelers, guests, and athletes. As part of the acquisition, Midas expects to pursue significant opportunities for growth in the Brazil’s high-growth IT sector, including cross-border revenue streams such the introduction of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings from Brazil to the US, in addition to Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) for US firms to their Brazilian counterparts. In fact, many American firms have begun to realize the extraordinary benefits of the more manageable time zone differences between Brazil and the US when compared to other outsourcing locations, such as India.
“This major acquisition represents a giant leap towards our goal of transforming Midas into a truly international organization with sophisticated IT offerings and Smart Grid solutions in both the United States, and around the world,” said Johnson Kachidza, President, CFO and Co-Founder of Midas. “A combination of Brazil’s upcoming development due to the World Cup and Olympic transformations and CIMCORP’s lucrative recurring revenue model are expected to result in double digit IT growth projections for Midas going forward.”
To assist with its cross-border nature, investment banking group, State Capital, was the financial advisor for CIMCORP for this transaction. With offices in Miami and Brazil, State Capital is an independent merchant bank focused on providing financial advice for significant mergers, acquisitions, restructuring, capital raising and private equity.
State Capital’s CEO, Luca Longobardi, stated, “We are thrilled with the closing of this acquisition, which brings together, two very smart, capable IT organizations in their respective markets. As they begin implementing their post-acquisition strategy, we believe Midas is uniquely positioned to effectively leverage and expand CIMCORP’s IT leadership in Brazil – the world’s eighth largest economy.”
Operating in Brazil since 1988, CIMCORP provides and manages a complete spectrum of IT infrastructure services and solutions to commercial and government markets. CIMCORP has 8 regional offices, 12 distributorships, 3 partner data centers, and an international subsidiary in Miami, FL.
