Other divestitures CSC has recently been involved in include the sale of its credit services unit for $1 billion, a hardware and software reselling business for $90 million and an information technology staffing unit for $73.5 million.
“The sale of ATD supports our realignment of company assets with our strategy of leading in the next generation of technology solutions and services, including cybersecurity, big data and cloud computing,” said Mike Lawrie, CSC president and CEO.
