GlideFast’s experienced team has become part of Apex Consulting Services within ASGN’s Commercial Segment.
GlideFast’s financial results will be incorporated into ASGN’s third quarter 2022 financials from the date of acquisition. The Company is anticipated to generate approximately $95 million in revenues for full year 2022 and EBITDA margins in the mid-teens. For 2023, GlideFast estimates revenue growth of approximately 30 percent over 2022 and EBITDA margins in the mid-teens. The integration of GlideFast provides ASGN access to a $190 billion ServiceNow addressable market.
“We are pleased to announce the close of our acquisition of GlideFast,” said ASGN Chief Executive Officer, Ted Hanson. “This acquisition ideally fits with our M&A strategy of acquiring in-demand digital solution capabilities that can be strategically pulled across our large account portfolio. ASGN has a long-standing Fortune 1000 account base, and GlideFast has leading ServiceNow capabilities. Together, through the implementation of the ServiceNow platform, ASGN and GlideFast will support our customers in establishing a new digital layer that automates workflows and streamlines business processes.”
In addition, in connection with the closing, ASGN is granting restricted stock unit awards to 42 key GlideFast employees covering approximately 72,500 shares. Subject to continued service to ASGN, these grants will vest: (a) one-half on the second anniversary of the grant date, and (b) 25 percent on each of the third and fourth anniversaries of the grant date.
