[ad_1]

San Antonio-based Sirius Computer Solutions has been acquired for $2.5 billion in cash by CDW Corp., an Illinois-based Fortune 500 company.

The deal is the second significant acquisition of a San Antonio tech company this month. Earlier in October, San Antonio email technology company Pathwire was acquired by an out-of-state firm for $1.9 billion.

Sirius, founded in 1980 by Harvey Najim as Star Data Systems, is “one of the largest and most well-regarded IT solutions integrators in North America,” CDW President and CEO Christine Leahy said in a call with investors. She said the acquisition of Sirius “accelerates our services and solutions capabilities” and would help to scale and balance CDW’s customer portfolio.
