Dimension Data sells Express Data distribution business

Dimension Data plans to sell its Express Data distribution business to Dicker Data, an ASX-listed hardware distributor. This includes Express Data and the Express Online operation.

If approved by Dicker Data shareholders, the deal will be completed by March 31. The parties are not talking about the price of the deal.

The move comes as Dimension Data pulls away from the distribution business to focus on services. Dimension Data says it will now move into areas such as managed services, IT outsourcing and data centres.
