The initial payment will be followed by two subsequent earnouts of $4 million and $4.8 million. These earnouts will be based on the achievement of certain levels of EBITDA performance over the next 30 months.

Calian Group’s President and CEO, Kevin Ford, was pleased to welcome Tallysman to the Calian team.

“This important acquisition supports both customer diversification and service line innovation, two key pillars within our four-pillar growth strategy. The Tallysman acquisition demonstrates Calian’s continued focus on innovation and growth.

“The wide range of products and applications Tallysman brings to Calian expands our product line and entry into new markets.

“We are excited with the opportunity to support innovation in exciting growth industries such as autonomous vehicles, precision agriculture, and wearables,” he said.
