24 August 2012 Capita acquires medical assessment and criminal justice support services firm, Reliance Secure Task Management Capita plc announces that it has acquired Reliance Secure Task Management Limited (`RSTM') for £20 million on a cash free, debt free basis. This comprises £9.7 million in purchase consideration and £5.85 million payable to the vendor group in repayment of intra-group funding, with the balance being cash required to fund committed capital expenditure, pension obligations and working capital at completion. RSTM provides forensic medical services, custody support and secure transport services to clients including the UK Border Agency, the Ministry of Justice, NHS trusts and police forces. The current level of revenues, on an annualised basis, is £75 million. RSTM made a pro forma operating loss for the 11 months to 31 March 2012 of £5.7 million. On its integration into Capita the business will realise significant synergy benefits and is expected to return to operating profit in 2013. Capita Group joint chief operating officer, Andy Parker, said: "The acquisition of RSTM will provide further scale and depth to the range of solutions we offer the health and emergency services, criminal justice system and wider public and private sector clients. It complements previous acquisitions, including SunGard Public Sector, Beat Systems and CedarHR. It also has significant synergies with our wide-ranging health and wellbeing business, which provides medical assessments in the private and public sector, including those for the new personal independence payments (PIP). We already work in some capacity with all police forces in England and Scotland, extensively with NHS trusts and, through our health and wellbeing business, with a number of large public and private sector organisations. These additional capabilities will allow us to provide new solutions, on a tailored basis, alongside our multi service offering." RSTM has approximately 2,000 employees, primarily in Bristol, Heston and at client sites. -ends- For further information: Capita plc Tel: 020 7654 2306 Shona Nichols, Corporate Communications Director Media enquiries Capita press office Caroline Mooney Tel: 0207 654 2152 or 020 7654 2399 (out of hours) Note to editors Capita plc is the UK's leading provider of BPO and integrated professional support service solutions.
