Capita acquires ALS


23 December 2011

           Capita acquires translation and interpreting specialists            

                          Applied Language Solutions                           

The Capita Group Plc announces today that it has acquired Applied Language
Solutions Ltd (`ALS'). ALS provides translation and interpreting services to
the public and private sector, with clients including Google, Sony and

In August 2011 ALS was awarded a framework agreement with the Ministry of
Justice (MoJ). The MoJ and its partners, including Her Majesty's Courts and
Tribunal Service, the Crown Prosecution Service, Her Majesty's Prison Service
and police forces across England and Wales, will be able to sign contracts
under the agreement for the delivery of interpreting and translation services.
The framework is expected to deliver cost savings in excess of £60m over 5
years, greatly reducing the criminal justice sector's spend in this area.

Capita is acquiring ALS for £7.5m, on a cash free, debt-free basis, with a
further contingent consideration of up to £60m, based on profit performance and
staged over the next 4 years. The latter consideration is based on ALS
achieving growth targets in line with the successful roll-out of the MoJ
contract and greater penetration of the UK language services market.

ALS made a pro forma operating loss for its financial year to May 2011 of £0.3m
on turnover of £10.6m.

Capita Group Chief Executive, Paul Pindar, said: "The acquisition adds a new
service to the range of those the Capita Group is able to offer to both the
public and private sectors. By combining ALS's specialist skills and
proprietary technology with Capita's operational expertise and balance sheet we
believe that this will allow us to become a very strong player in the language
services industry. There are excellent opportunities for organic growth both in
the UK and internationally."

ALS, which will form a new standalone business within the Capita Group, has
around 130 employees based in the UK, India, Europe and the US and contracts
17,000 translators across the globe.
