The acquisition is subject to customary regulatory approval and is expected to close in Tech Data’s fourth quarter. DLT will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Tech Data.
Art Richer, CEO at DLT, said that the transaction “represents an opportunity for DLT to expand its value proposition by aligning with a Fortune 100 company that brings broader vendor and partner relationships” and financial strength.
DLT has experienced continued growth through sales of next-generation technologies, including cloud and cybersecurity, to the public sector since its acquisition by Mill Point Capital in 2015.
“Government customers continue to look to new cloud and as-a-service delivery models requiring access to more technologies and partners to deliver them. The addition of DLT enables Tech Data to proactively develop opportunities, accelerate growth and simplify complexity for its channel partners serving the U.S. public sector space,” Richer added.
DLT Solutions is being represented by Evercore in the transaction.
