NeoSystems is private corporation that also specializes in professional services and technology solutions. Early talks indicate that the acquisition could cost Novume Solutions, Inc. around $21 million. The acquisition is still subject to thorough due diligence. Here is the full press release detailing of the preliminary term sheet agreement:
CHANTILLY, VA / ACCESSWIRE / October 13, 2017 / Novume Solutions, Inc. (OTCQX: NVMM; OTCQX: NVMMP; OTCQX: NVMMW), a holding company of leading professional services firms, announced today that, effective October 11, 2017, it entered into a preliminary term sheet with NeoSystems Corp., which sets forth the parties’ intent for Novume to acquire NeoSystems. NeoSystems is a privately-held, Tysons Corner, Virginia-based company that provides professional services and technology solutions that deliver strategic back office support to companies and associations.
Should the acquisition take place, NeoSystems would become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Novume. The total consideration for the acquisition, which is expected to be comprised of cash, Novume restricted stock, and Novume’s assumption of certain NeoSystems’ liabilities, is anticipated to be approximately $21 million.
The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including satisfactory completion of due diligence, negotiation and entry into definitive agreements, approval of the transactions by the Novume and NeoSystems boards of directors, and a financing transaction.
“Acquiring NeoSystems would be a great addition to Novume’s suite of specialty professional services firms that focus on delivering critical human resources and definitive knowledge to the right place at the right time. The acquisition of NeoSystems would significantly increase Novume’s top-line revenue and would be an important step in realizing our strategic plan to expand Novume through acquisitions and organic growth,” said Robert A. Berman, Novume’s Chief Executive Officer.
Michael Tinsley, NeoSystems’ President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are impressed with Novume’s vision and see a strong strategic fit for NeoSystems to be a part of the Novume family of professional services firms, and we anticipate that the relationship will foster continued high growth and expansion of our business.”
The NeoSystems acquisition, if consummated, would be Novume’s second acquisition, and the preliminary term sheet comes just weeks after Novume acquired Global Technical Services, Inc. and Global Contract Professionals, Inc. (collectively “Global”), and a little over a month after Novume was formed through the merger of KeyStone Solutions, Inc. and Brekford Traffic Safety, Inc. Earlier in 2017, KeyStone acquired Firestorm Solutions, LLC, a national leader in both risk and crisis management, and in 2016, KeyStone acquired AOC Key Solutions, Inc., a firm specializing in managing and writing proposals, winning contracts, and providing market assessment services for government contractors. Historically, Novume’s subsidiary companies have helped their clients win more than $160 billion of contracts. Novume is expanding its suite of services to enable the company to help its clients not only win work but perform it, as well.
The Benchmark Company, LLC is acting as financial advisor to Novume for the NeoSystems transaction.
Additional information regarding the transaction is available in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 13, 2017, and also available on the SEC Filings page of the Novume website.
