LTG sells VectorVMS to PIXID Group

VectorVMS is a leading vendor management platform for contingent labour with operations predominantly in North America and the UK. By way of background, VectorVMS was acquired as part of the $150 million PeopleFluent acquisition in 2018 and was subsequently separated into an independent business and brand later that year. For the full year ended 31 December 2023, Vector generated revenue and Adjusted EBIT of $11.4m and $7.1 million respectively.

The sale of Vector is part of LTG’s announced strategy to actively manage the portfolio, sharpening our focus on learning and talent development. The sale of Vector follows the completed disposals of Lorien Engineering Solutions and TTI in 2023.

The Board of Directors will consider the use of proceeds from the Vector divestiture and provide an update to the market in due course. The transaction is expected to close in July 2024.
