Our merger experience and approach
CGI has achieved sustained profitable growth over the past four decades through a “Build and Buy” strategy focused on driving organic growth (“Build”) and growth via mergers (“Buy”). On the Buy side, we have completed more than 105 mergers since going public in 1986.
One of CGI’s core strengths is our ability to successfully merge cultures, consultants and processes into a single, unified organization through best practices that cover every aspect of the integration life cycle. More than half of our consultants have joined CGI through mergers, coming together as one to build a global company that continues to grow and succeed.
To ensure the success of our merger strategy, CGI carefully evaluates prospective companies based on defined criteria that closely aligns with our strategic growth objectives.
