Broadliner Tech Data has entered into an agreement to acquire DLT Solutions, a premier software and cloud solutions aggregator focused on the US public sector. Upon closing of the transaction, DLT will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Tech Data. The acquisition is subject to customary regulatory approvals and is expected to close during Tech Data’s fourth fiscal quarter.
By bringing deeper specialisation in the federal, state and local markets, the addition of DLT enables Tech Data to proactively develop opportunities, accelerate growth and simplify complexity for its channel partners that are serving the U.S. public sector space.
"This acquisition reflects our strategy of delivering higher value – strengthening our end-to-end portfolio and accelerating our capabilities in next-generation technologies – and we look forward to welcoming DLT’s colleagues to Tech Data", said Rich Hume, chief executive officer at Tech Data. "The addition also demonstrates how our portfolio optimisation actions are freeing up capital, which is enabling us to invest in high-quality growth opportunities that advance our strategy and provide higher-value solution offerings to our partners.”
Headquartered in Herndon, Virginia, DLT is a government solutions aggregator that accelerates public sector growth for business partners that serve the federal, state and local markets. DLT creates value by providing access to a robust network of channel partners and a broad portfolio of more than 50 in-house contract vehicles.
“We are thrilled to join the Tech Data team”, said Art Richer, chief executive officer at DLT Solutions. “This acquisition combines our public sector expertise and capabilities with a leading Fortune 100 company known for creating value across the technology ecosystem. It represents an opportunity to apply our unique public sector value proposition to a broader set of vendors and partners.”
