Singapore-based NCS Acquires The Dialog Group for S$325 million

The acquisition will treble the number of highly skilled IT specialists in its operations in Australia to 1,300

Singapore-based NCS has acquired Australia’s largest privately-owned IT services company, The Dialog Group (Dialog). The acquisition will help NCS support the Australian public sector and enterprise clients in addressing their rising digital transformation needs. The price of the acquisition was S$325 million.

Dialog is known for its extensive services portfolio from IT consulting, application development to managed application services. The company has extensive presence in Australia including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Darwin, and Adelaide.

The acquisition will help NCS accelerate its regionalization strategy. “This acquisition is a significant step in the regionalization of NCS and leverages the combined strengths of NCS and Dialog and their established track records and reputations across both Singapore and Australia. The scale of this acquisition, our largest to date, reflects our firm commitment to growing our business beyond the shores of Singapore, particularly in Australia where we can also leverage the strategic presence of the Singtel Group,” said Mr Ng Kuo Pin, CEO of NCS.

The acquisition will also treble the number of highly skilled IT specialists in its operations in Australia to 1,300 – ready to support clients from a multitude of sectors including government, healthcare, transport, communications, financial and commercial services.
