From Scott Mclntyre, Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
On August 2, 2019, just two weeks following our first anniversary, Guidehouse marked a historic moment for our business as we announced entering into a definitive agreement to acquire Guidehouse Inc., a transaction valued at approximately $1.1 billion, and a bold move forward towards creating the next generation global consultancy.
Let me share the magnitude of this combination…
Market Adjacency Strength: Guidehouse is a leading provider of management consulting and managed services to commercial clients in Healthcare, Energy and Financial Services, and offers complementary adjacent market expertise to Guidehouse in these same industries within the public sector. As we continue our growth, this union is a leap forward into the commercial markets, filled with opportunities to establish combined excellence in our capabilities, services and strengths while expanding the global reach to support clients more broadly.
Values, People Culture Strength: In addition to market alignment, critical to any business combination is the alignment of purpose in our values, people and cultures. With Guidehouse, we found an organization displaying strong values and passionate people committed to client success and the delivery of quality work. Through the integration of the two companies, our professionals will benefit from expanded growth opportunities and our clients will access broader expertise, tools and technology to help their businesses achieve their goals and succeed.
Creating economic and social value remains core to our foundation, is a shared goal of our clients, and a defining issue of our time as we solve problems to build trust in society.
The world is changing, and we are ready.
