PC Mall Gov, Inc., a reseller of technology products to the government and educational institutions, has acquired the products business of Government Micro Resources, Inc., a government reseller of technology products including Sun Microsystems, IBM, Saba, and Apple.
The business, which was acquired through a wholly owned subsidiary for $3.25 million in cash, includes product business assets and contracts, according to a PC Mall statement. Through the first eight months of 2006, GMRI's records showed approximately $43 million in products sales.
PC Mall Gov, a subsidiary of PC Mall, Inc., said it has hired some GMRI employees who were associated with its products business.
'The acquisition expands our footprint in the government marketplace and further enhances the breadth of products we sell to include Sun,' said Alan Bechara, president of PC Mall Gov, in a statement. 'The acquisition complements PC Mall Gov's existing business and should provide us with the opportunity to leverage PC Mall Gov's strengths across GMRI's experienced sales organization.'
