CHANTILLY, VA / September 22, 2017 / ACCESSWIRE — Novume Solutions, Inc. (OTCQX: NVMM; OTCQX: NVMMP; OTCQX: NVMMW), a holding company of leading professional services firms, announced today the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire Global Technical Services, Inc. and Global Contract Professionals, Inc. (collectively “Global”) in a cash and stock transaction valued at $3.75 million. Global consists of two privately-held, Fort Worth, Texas-based companies under common ownership that provide contract and direct-hire staffing services to the aviation maintenance, aerospace, electronics, and defense industries. The transaction is expected to close on or about October 1, 2017. 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 September 22, 2017, and also available on the SEC Filings page of the Novume website.
“The acquisition of Global adds to our suite of specialty professional services firms that focus on delivering critical human resources and definitive knowledge to the right place at the right time. We anticipate that the acquisition will add in excess of $35 million of revenues to Novume’s top-line in 2018. This is an important step in realizing our strategic plan to expand Novume through acquisitions and organic growth and provides a foundation for future expansion and acquisitions in the aerospace and aviation staffing industry,” said Robert Berman, Novume’s Chief Executive Officer.
Kenny Boner, Global’s President, said, “This is an exciting time for us. We are eager to become part of Novume ‘s vision of providing a full spectrum of human capital solutions for the nation’s leading businesses. With Novume’s leadership and Team Global’s 28 years of staffing presence, we believe we will have many opportunities to expand our footprint rapidly.”
The Global acquisition is Novume’s first acquisition and comes just weeks 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 acted as financial advisor to Novume for the Global transaction.
