Synergy Is Coming

Once the deal is closed, Insight will be looking to make $70 million in cuts to PCM by 2021, with half of those planned within the first 12 to 18 months.

Insight said it expects to find savings inside “corporate expenses, stimulating sales and service delivery operations, and the effects of combined technology systems and operations.” Lamneck singled out PCM’s public cloud hosting business as one area that could be on the chopping block.

“We definitely are looking at those pieces, that one specifically, to see if that really fits well in the portfolio,” Lamneck said. “All the other pieces seems to fit very, very nicely into the business, but the hosting business is one that we’ll look at very closely. It’s a relatively small part of the business, but we want to see if there’s an opportunity there for us to take advantage of or if that’s something that may not be a strategic fit long term.”
