El Segundo, Calif., Dec.17 - Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) announced today that it has acquired SYS-AID, a Netherlands-based management consulting and information technology services firm. Terms of the all-cash transaction were not disclosed.

Headquartered in Venlo, Netherlands, SYS-AID has annual revenues of $22.5 million, and employs more than 260 professionals at its operations in the Netherlands and at subsidiaries in Germany and Belgium.

"SYS-AID provides clients a balanced array of information technology services," said Van B. Honeycutt, CSC's chairman, president and CEO. "The firm's business consulting and I/T implementation expertise further strengthen CSC's capabilities in Europe."

I/T services skills at SYS-AID encompass system development and software engineering, systems and network management, and outsourcing activities. The company's consultants specialize in logistics, finance and I/T support, including implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. The firm has long- standing partnerships with BAAN, Progress and Oracle.

"The benefits for SYS-AID were quite clear to us" said Peter Slijpen, SYS-AID's founder, majority shareholder and CEO. "It is very important to us that we continue the company's activities up-market without considerable changes, but from a broader international basis."

CSC had $7.1 billion in revenues for the 12 months ended Oct. 2, 1998. Headquartered in El Segundo, Calif., the company has 47,000 employees in 700 offices worldwide and provides clients with a wide range of professional services, including management consulting, information systems consulting and integration, and operations support.
