Computer Horizons, Analysts International To Merge

Announced late Wednesday, the companies billed the transaction as "a merger of equals" that will employ some 5,000 consultants working out of 50 offices in 28 states, Canada, the U.K., and India.

"CHC and Analysts have very little client overlap," said CHC president and CEO William J. Murphy in a statement. "Only eight of our top 50 customers are shared by both companies." Murphy added that about $15 million should be saved by merging, much of it by eliminating duplicate facilities and infrastructure.

In addition to providing services for many of the nation's Corporate 1000 companies, the combine will have a government practice serving federal, state, and local government agencies with annual sales of about $65 million. The new entity will also continue delivering services to mid-tier markets.

IT professional services to be offered by the combined company will include data management, infrastructure support, and application management and development.
