TEMPE, Ariz. & EL SEGUNDO, Calif.–()–Insight Enterprises (Nasdaq: NSIT), the global provider of Insight Intelligent Technology Solutions™ for organizations of all sizes, (“Insight”), and PCM, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCMI), a provider of IT products and services (“PCM”), have entered into an agreement under which Insight will acquire PCM for $35 per share, representing a 36% premium to its 1-month average closing share price as of Friday, June 21, 2019. The transaction implies an enterprise value of approximately $581 million (including cash and debt acquired).

PCM, based in El Segundo, California, is a provider of multi-vendor technology offerings, including hardware, software and services to small, mid-sized and corporate/enterprise commercial clients, state, local and federal governments and educational institutions across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. PCM has offices in 40 locations across these geographies and has more than 4,000 teammates, including more than 2,700 client-facing teammates in sales, technical and service delivery roles.

“Over the past five years, Insight has made significant progress, transforming our business from a value-added reseller to a well-respected global solutions provider with deep expertise across technology areas that provide our clients with significant value. Together with PCM, we will be even better positioned to capitalize on our solution area investments through the addition of more technical and sales resources and access to thousands of new clients, especially in the mid-market and corporate client segments,” said Ken Lamneck, CEO of Insight.

The combination of the two organizations extends Insight’s reach into areas where clients need help most: positioning their businesses for future growth, transforming and securing their data platforms, creating modern and mobile experiences for their workforce and optimizing the procurement of technology. Together, the combined organization will be able to offer partners an even stronger salesforce globally, with increased footprints in North America and the United Kingdom.

“The acquisition of PCM accelerates our opportunity to grow share within our four solution areas: Supply Chain OptimizationConnected WorkforceCloud + Data Center Transformation and Digital Innovation. The addition of PCM complements our Supply Chain Optimization business, adding scale and clients in the mid-market and corporate space in North America. PCM’s services offerings add scale and capabilities to our Connected Workforce and Cloud + Data Center Transformation solution areas and support our strategy to grow our solutions business,” said Steve Dodenhoff, president of Insight’s North America business.[

“This combination offers the ability to provide clients with greater value through the expansive solution offerings of the combined company at a time when customers increasingly need a full-service technology solutions provider to help them transform for the future. Together, we will be able to offer an impressive level of breadth, scale, partnerships and services to meet our clients’ needs and exceed their expectations. On behalf of our Board of Directors, we are very pleased to announce this combination which we believe maximizes our shareholders’ value, and we look forward to the resulting opportunities that lie ahead for our employees, customers and vendor partners,” said Frank Khulusi, chairman and CEO of PCM.

Insight expects to realize annual run-rate cost synergies of approximately $70 million by the end of 2021, with more than 50 percent of this to be realized in the first twelve to eighteen months, primarily related to the consolidation of IT and delivery systems, and real estate and operational integration.

“Insight has a disciplined operating model for evaluating acquisitions and efficiently integrating these businesses post-closing, which has allowed us to deliver well on the financial commitments of acquisitions we have made in the past few years. As we move towards the closing and integration of PCM, we expect to deploy these same best practices to deliver the expected synergies in our financial results,” stated Glynis Bryan, chief financial officer of Insight. “We believe this transaction will contribute materially to shareholder value as we execute our plans.”

Insight expects the acquisition to add more than $0.70 to Adjusted earnings per share in 2020, excluding:
