Commenting on the ACS acquisition, AdEPT’s chief executive, said that the purchase would expand the capabilities and geographical reach of the company’s IT services in Yorkshire, adding that ACS had a “well-developed customer base with long term relationships” which would build upon AdEPT’s existing presence in the education sector.

Kevin McEwen, the managing director of ACS, said the team was looking forward to working with AdEPT.

“Our education focus, providing a broad range of expertise to more than 200 educational establishments, alongside our commercial clients means that AdEPT is an incredibly complementary home for our business,” McEwen said.

With shares trading at 362p as of 17 May, AdEPT carries a market cap of around £85.3mln.
