3i-MIND to Acquire iJET International, Inc.
Companies Join Forces to Deliver The Industry's Only Intelligence-Driven Resiliency Solutions
ZURICH, SWITZERLAND and ANNAPOLIS, MD - March 23, 2011 -- 3i-MIND, a leader in threat management software solutions, announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire iJET International, Inc., the leading operational risk management provider that delivers predictive intelligence, technology and response services. Signal Hill Updata acted as sole financial advisor to iJET in this transaction.
3i-MIND is a privately held company, headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, with U.S. headquarters in Fort Lee, New Jersey, and global operations in Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. The acquisition of Maryland-based iJET will combine 3i-MIND's products, technology and global reach with iJET?s risk management solutions and proven intelligence expertise. The companies' respective offerings will create the industry?s only intelligence-driven resiliency solution set, providing clients a full array of predictive intelligence, preparedness and response solutions for governments, corporations, law enforcement agencies and cities.
"As recent events have shown, it is no longer enough to simply react to evolving global threats and natural disasters with traditional tools and approaches. The key to resiliency in this new world is the ability to innovate and leverage the trusted intelligence necessary to anticipate, prepare for and quickly respond to threats," said Yali Harari, CEO of 3i-MIND. "In iJET, we have found a dynamic company that represents the best practices of hundreds of multinational corporate clients and is a recognized industry leader in predictive intelligence and risk management tools. We are impressed with iJET?s people, culture, commitment to excellence and customer service."
?3i-MIND and iJET share a commitment to serving the unique resiliency requirements of private and public organizations around the world,? said Stephen Hoffman, CEO of iJET. "We are pleased that 3i-MIND will reinforce our international growth strategy and accelerate the development of solutions and services. Together, we will continue collaborating with clients to further define and strengthen their resiliency initiatives."
The transaction is expected to close following the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Following the closing, iJET will operate as a stand-alone company within 3i-MIND's group of companies. Stephen Hoffman, iJET CEO, will continue to lead iJET?s growth and will be part of 3i-MIND's global management team.
