05/11/2021 | 09:13am EDT

KAWASAKI, JAPAN: Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation ('Toshiba ESS'), a world leader in energy solutions, announced that Toshiba America Energy Systems Corporation ('TAES'), its United States affiliate and North American market leader in steam turbine generator supply and energy system solutions, has reached agreement with GP Strategies Corporation (NYSE: GPX), a global provider of workforce transformation solutions, to acquire its EtaPRO business.

TAES will acquire the rights to the EtaPRO name and brand as well as the entirety of GP Strategies' interests in the EtaPRO software platform pursuant to an asset purchase agreement. The purchase includes the EtaPRO trademarks and intellectual property rights, all customer contracts related to EtaPRO, and all of its related services such as maintenance and remote monitoring. Upon closing, TAES will integrate EtaPRO employees into its operations and will continue operating existing EtaPRO office locations.

As a long-time partner of GP Strategies, Toshiba ESS has been deploying EtaPRO technology to many of its power generation customers. Toshiba ESS understands the value of EtaPRO technology and is eager to incorporate EtaPRO into its global cyber-physical systems and digital transformation strategy. 'EtaPRO is a perfect complement to our product portfolio and we're thrilled to welcome them to our team,' said Takao Konishi, Director and Senior Vice President at Toshiba ESS. 'By bringing Toshiba ESS and EtaPRO together, we'll significantly expand our suite of power generation services and digital solutions to our clients worldwide.'

'Joining with Toshiba will enable the EtaPRO business to innovate faster and more globally,' said Richard DesJardins, GP Strategies Senior Vice President and EtaPRO business leader. 'This improves the scalability and functionality of the EtaPRO platform across both traditional and renewable power generating technologies.'

'This transaction reaffirms GP Strategies' commitment to strategic deals that position all involved parties for future success,' said GP Strategies' CEO Adam Stedham. 'I am confident this deal will be very positive and generate significant value for EtaPRO employees and clients, Toshiba and GP Strategies.'

Toshiba Group is currently in Phase 2 of its strategic 'Toshiba Next Plan,' which emphasizes strong growth through infrastructure services. This acquisition will enable TAES and Toshiba ESS to provide one-stop solutions with greater service efficiency to its customers through the integration of digital technologies from the EtaPRO platform. This new offering will enhance Toshiba's current servicing and maintenance solutions for turbines and equipment for power generation.

Closing of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including a review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), and is anticipated to occur by the third quarter of 2021.
