Sykes Enterprises, Incorporated Completes Acquisition of Certain Assets of a Global 2000 Telecommunications Services Provider

PRESS RELEASE: Sykes Enterprises, Incorporated, a global business process outsourcing leader in providing comprehensive inbound customer engagement services to Global 2000 companies, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of the certain assets of the telecommunications services provider.

“Since the announcement of the transaction, we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from clients and employees, who will become part of the greater SYKES family. We believe this transaction will create broader opportunities for the incoming employees, provide access to a world-class business platform for the incoming clients and drive long-term value creation for our shareholders,” said Chuck Sykes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sykes Enterprises, Incorporated.

The Company anticipates the transaction to be neutral on a diluted earnings per share basis in 2017 as it focuses on fine-tuning the acquired operations to a level of performance consistent with its approach after having been operated as a non-core asset. The Company plans to update its business outlook regarding the impact of this transaction when it reports its second quarter 2017 financial results.
