TOKYO, JAPAN & SOUTHFIELD, Mich — June 26, 2019 – NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group (TYO:9432), and Symmetry Holding Inc. (Symmetry), a U.S.-based leading provider of SAP managed services, announced today that Secure-24 Intermediate Holdings, Inc. (Secure-24), wholly owned subsidiary of NTT Com, entered into a definitive agreement on June 26 (Japan Standard Time), pursuant to which Secure-24 will wholly acquire Symmetry.
Managed services are one of the key capabilities NTT Com is strengthening to support its clients’ digital transformations as a DX EnablerTM.

Symmetry possesses extensive expertise in SAP managed services, which it delivers to large enterprise clients in diverse industries including consumer products, life sciences, manufacturing and high-tech in the U.S., the world’s largest market for managed services. Symmetry also offers migration and operations services for SAP S/4 HANA, a flexible, high-speed platform, which is expected to be widely deployed.
“The acquisition of Symmetry allows us to strengthen the comprehensive managed services we provide to our customers, while opening doors to new opportunities,” said Mike BeDell, Chief Executive Officer, Secure-24. “With the combined expertise of both companies and Symmetry’s extensive portfolio of managed SAP services we are now in a position to deliver greater value to our customers around the world.”
“For more than 20 years, Symmetry has been committed to delivering the highest quality SAP cloud hosting and application management services to the market and our customers,” said Pete Stevenson, Chairman and CEO of Symmetry. “We look forward to delivering even greater value to our customers with the expanded offerings and global resources that Secure-24 offers, without sacrificing the high touch support and commitment to success our team executes on and our customers have come to expect.”
The transaction is expected to close in 2019 and is subject to regulatory approvals. Through this 100 percent acquisition, Symmetry’s unique strengths will be fully integrated into the NTT Com ecosystem, including its total managed IT service, as well as cloud, network and data center services, for increasingly robust managed operation and maintenance of clients’ hybrid IT environments.
NTT Com will continue to enhance its technical and business systems to sustainably deliver managed services that drive digital transformation for clients.
