The sale of Jeskell had been expected in the wake of San Diego-based TIG's successful lawsuit against FusionStorm as a way for FusionStorm to raise the cash needed to settle that lawsuit.
The lawsuit ended in August when the two reached an out-of-court settlement after a California Superior Court jury found FusionStorm liable for misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of fiduciary duty and breach of loyalty.
FusionStorm at the time agreed to pay TIG nearly $11 million to resolve the case, covering all damages, expenses and legal fees. The date of the settlement was extended a number of times in order to give FusionStorm time to gather the resources to pay those costs.
Carson declined to comment on whether the FusionStorm lawsuit had any impact on the timing and the acquisition price for Jeskell.
