PRO Unlimited to Acquire Geometric Results, Inc., a Leading Managed Services Provider


We are excited to announce that PRO Unlimited will acquire Geometric Results, Inc. (GRI), a leading independent, outsourced workforce management expert, owned by funds managed by Bain Capital Private Equity Europe. This acquisition will increase the value of PRO’s IWM platform by adding GRI’s proven Managed Services Program (MSP) capabilities to its robust portfolio of SaaS, Talent Intelligence and Professional Services solutions.

The proposed GRI transaction continues PRO’s organic and M&A growth journey. The addition of GRI’s services includes SOW optimization, proactive sourcing, market intelligence, and supplier engagement. This will reinforce PRO’s offering for customers including Fortune 1000 and mid-market organizations across multiple industry verticals. It will further enhance the PRO client experience by broadening and deepening the services it offers companies in the areas of strategic talent acquisition, cost savings and growth goals related to their contingent workforce management programs.

Here is what our CEO, Kevin Akeroyd, had to say regarding the acquisition:

“Our number-one priority is providing organizations with the most innovative and client-centric solutions to accelerate how they acquire, manage and optimize talent. GRI shares this same strategic approach for its customers. Combining two leading contingent workforce management companies allows us to reimagine and transform the future of work. With GRI’s team of experts and ours, we have a new opportunity to innovate, anticipate and solve future workforce management challenges. Our existing and new clients will be able to rely on us for greater management, performance and financial control over their workforce and talent supply chains.”

GRI is currently owned by MSX International, a leading provider of technology-enabled business process outsourcing, which is a portfolio company of funds managed by Bain Capital Europe. GRI offers customized MSP solutions to over 150 global clients, with over $4 billion in spend under management and a strong presence in the US, UK and India. Its presence in both the UK and India further extends PRO’s established operations in these countries, and increases its vast supplier network of over 10,000 agencies. With the proposed acquisition, the combined client spend under management for PRO will reach over $20 billion.

Mike Wachholz, CEO of GRI, had the following to add:

“GRI continues to exceed growth expectations due to the contributions of our team and partners at Bain Capital Private Equity, our ability to remain aligned with clients and our commitment to over-deliver with a broad suite of capabilities. Their strategic and operational expertise has helped us build a highly scalable model to support further market penetration and diversification, and we’re incredibly excited to continue our growth journey in concert with PRO Unlimited.”

Fred Minturn, Chairman of MSX International, also commented:

“PRO is set to be a great home for the future of our employees and our customers, who will now benefit from a broad portfolio of services via the comprehensive PRO platform.”

David Danon, a Managing Director at Bain Capital Private Equity Europe, added:

“Over the last five years, the business has grown tremendously under Mike and Fred’s leadership through the introduction of new services (including Statement of Work and Direct Sourcing), investment into its industry-leading EnvisionTM analytics platform and transformative M&A. We want to thank the whole team for the shared success.”

The transaction is subject to customary conditions and approvals. Sidley Austin LLP, Morgan Lewis and PwC advised PRO Unlimited with this transaction.
