Dimension Data completes cross-border acquisition of Ceryx

April 4, 2016

On April 4, 2016, Dimension Data, the US$7.5 billion global ICT services and solutions provider, announced that it had acquired privately owned Ceryx Inc., a Toronto-headquartered company that offers a suite of services across the Microsoft Messaging and Collaboration Suite (including Office 365, Exchange, Sharepoint and Skype for Business) for an undisclosed sum.

Ceryx’s focus is on Fortune 500 clients, mainly in Canada and the United States, with recent wins in Europe. When combined with Dimension Data’s global client base which covers many industry verticals, this accelerates Dimension Data to a dominant global position in this market.

Miller Thomson advised Ceryx in this transaction with a team that was led by Robert Stewart and that included Phil Long (corporate/M&A) and Ron Choudhury and Neil Gurmukh (tax), assisted by student-at-law Gary Volman.
