Portfolio Optimization. Continuing its strategic actions to optimize its operating model and unlock capital, Kelly has sold the Ayers Group, a division of KellyOCG, to Keystone Partners, a Silver Oak Services Partners LLC portfolio company. While financial terms were not disclosed, the transaction further allows the Company to focus resources on specialties where KellyOCG is well positioned to compete and win over the long term, in our view.

Ayers Group. A provider of outplacement, executive coaching, and leadership development solutions to employers, Ayers was acquired by Kelly in 2006 for $4.6 million, with another $1.3 million of potential earnouts. Ayers was generating about $10 million of revenue at the time and while Kelly does not break out Ayers’ current revenue contribution, various sources estimate current revenue in the $20 million range.
