ADP spinning off dealer services ops

  • ADP (ADP +1%) is spinning off its Dealer Services unit, a provider of IT solutions to 26K+ vehicle dealers, through an IPO. The transaction is expected to close by the early part of Q4.
  • The BPO giant expects to receive tax-free proceeds of at least $700M, which it plans to return to shareholders via buybacks once the spinoff is finished. Dealer Services accounts for nearly $2B of ADP's $11B+ in annual sales.
  • CEO Carlos Rodriguez: "Consistent with our strategy to grow our position as a global provider of HCM solutions, we have concluded that the separation of Dealer Services will allow both companies to focus on their respective industries."

    Dealer Track has been pounding ADP's antiquated DMS model.


    I guess the board got tired of losing business...
