Staffing company Services today said it will acquire ASAP Info Systems for an enterprise value of Rs 67 crore.

The Bengaluru-headquartered ASAP Info Systems offers IT staffing solutions to various MNCs and domestic companies, with over 1,000 associates and 171 core employees as of date.

"The transaction, which will be immediately accretive to TeamLease's earnings per share, will be financed with existing financial resources and is expected to close before the end of August 2016," the company said in a statement.

Services has signed a definitive agreement to this effect.

The transaction will be done through TeamLease's wholly-owned subsidiary Staffing Services Private and subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.
