Sirius Computer Solutions, Inc. announced it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire Forsythe Technology, Inc. The deal is scheduled to close in Q4 2017 and is subject to regulatory approval. Terms were not disclosed.

“This is an extremely exciting time for Sirius and our clients,” said Joe Mertens, president and CEO of Sirius. “Combining with Forsythe helps us expand the depth of our solutions and services offerings for our clients, specifically in security, risk management, and data center transformation.”

The combined company will employ over 3,000 employees in more than 70 offices nationwide, and have generated over $3 billion of revenue in the last twelve months.

In addition to Forsythe, Sirius has made six acquisitions since 2014, including Brightlight Consulting; Varrow, Inc., Avnet, Inc.’s digital solution services, Force 3, thinkASG and Continuum Security Solutions.

“Combining with Sirius allows us to expand our solutions and product offerings to best serve our long-standing customer base,” said Bill Brennan, president and CEO of Forsythe Technology. “We are extremely impressed with the reputation and credibility Sirius has built in the IT industry, and look forward to the expanded capabilities we will be able to bring to our clients as a result of this acquisition.”
