Wendel welcomes the definitive agreement signed by Allied Universal® to acquire Securadyne Systems, a security systems integration company based in Dallas, Texas with deal expected to close on April 15, 2019. This acquisition will combine a leading U.S. security services company with a technology solutions provider, which will serve as a platform for providing technology-enabled security solutions on a global scale. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Founded by CEO Carey Boethel in 2011 in partnership with Pamlico Capital, Securadyne Systems specializes in integrated security solutions by offering security consulting, design, engineering and installation. With revenues in excess of $73 million and more than 300 employees, Securadyne has a branch network of more than 17 locations across the United States.
As a result of this acquisition, Securadyne Systems will become the technology service platform upon which Allied Universal will build out global systems integration capabilities.

The Securadyne team will be joining Allied Universal under Allied Universal Technology Services. Boethel will become President of the new entity under the direction of Jones. Ty Richmond, who formally oversaw Allied Universal Security Systems, will now be responsible for Risk Advisory and Consulting Services and the company's international business.

This transaction will contribute positively to Allied Universal's long-term value creation.
