Global IT and business consulting services firms CGI has announced that its subsidiary, CGI Technology and Solutions Australia Pty Limited, have signed an agreement to acquire Unico, a technology consultancy and systems integrator based in Melbourne.

CGI says the transaction is subject to approval by Australia’s Foreign Investment Review Board and is expected to close sometime next quarter.

CGI says the acquisition will grow it’s footprint in Australia, with a focus on the Melbourne metro market, and in key industry sectors, including communications, government, utilities and financial services.

Unico, which was established in 1984, brings approximately 160 largely Melbourne-based professionals to CGI and the company says the team will be integrated with its existing business in Australia, which forms part of the UK and Australia Strategic Business Unit.

“We look forward to welcoming Unico into the CGI family,” said Tara McGeehan, CGI’s UK & Australia President.

“Right from our earliest discussions, it’s been clear that both organisations share similar values and capabilities, which we believe will result in a quick and successful integration.

“Here in the UK & Australia business, we pride ourselves on being a responsible business that does complex things well—and Unico shares a similar ethos. We are excited to bring together our expertise and innovation to build an even stronger presence in the Australian market.” 

CGI says the merger, combined with the recent opening of its Space, Defence and Intelligence Hub in Adelaide, will enhance and accelerate its position in Australia as a leading provider of secure and flexible end-to-end services, including business and strategic IT consulting, systems integration, managed services and intellectual property-based business solutions.
