Conduent has announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell a portfolio of select standalone customer care contracts to Skyview Capital LLC, a privately held investment firm headquartered in Los Angeles, Cal.
This portfolio, which generated approximately $500 million in revenue in 2017, is part of the previously announced plan to divest $1 billion in revenue associated with non-core assets. Once this transaction closes, it will conclude that divestiture plan. This divestiture amplifies Conduent’s ability to focus on higher value-added, platform-enabled Business Services.
Moreover, this divestiture is aligned with Conduent’s strategy to reposition the company and redeploy its capital on technology investments in growing its core businesses.
The transaction, which is subject to certain regulatory approval and customary closing conditions, is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2018.
UBS Investment Bank is serving as financial advisor and Sheppard Mullin is serving as legal counsel to Conduent.
