Mission, Kansas – October 17, 2012 – Xact Data Discovery (XDD), an international leading provider of data discovery and management services to law firms, corporations and government agencies with 16 offices nationally, recently merged its Minneapolis, MN branch location with another local service provider, K&B Document Technologies. XDD retains a controlling interest in the merged Minneapolis business operations. This transaction marks the first of several business expansion endeavors XDD is presently pursuing in the US.
Nick Barry, K&B President, will be responsible for the newly merged office. Barry and co-owner Brad Kair will also retain an equity stake as partners. The newly combined business, operating under the Xact Data Discovery brand, is expected to generate $6.5 million in annual revenue.
According to Bob Polus, Xact Data Discovery’s President and CEO, the Minneapolis deal is a terrific fit, “We have been friendly competitors for about fifteen years now, and there is very little customer overlap. Merging our Minneapolis offices will allow us to bring a large customer base together and to leverage XDD’s technological service offerings, production capacities and international presence.”
Nick Barry, K&B President, is equally enthusiastic about the newly merged operations, “K&B’s long-term customer base will be pleased with the technological discovery service offerings that can now be brought to the table with this merger. Moreover, XDD’s long standing reputation for excellent customer service and work product made this a relatively easy decision for us.”
