Xerox acquires ISG Holdings for $225M

Summary:The deal also lands Xerox ISG's subsidiaries specializing in medical bill review, care management services and analytics.

Xerox is expanding its footprint in the insurance sector with news Wednesday that the company has acquired ISG Holdings for $225 million. 

The deal also lands Xerox StrataCare and Bunch CareSolutions, ISG subsidiaries specializing in medical bill review, care management services and analytics. The companies will be folded into Xerox's existing portfolio as well as its CompIQ medical bill review division.

By gobbling up ISG and its subsidiaries, Xerox is looking to grow its presence in the area of workers compensation bill review — an industry Xerox Services president Bob Zapfel said generates $60 billion in medical payments each year, equating to 75 million bills in need of financial validation.

Xerox has been investing heavily in its services business, with a significant chunk of spending going toward its push in the healthcare space. Xerox CEO Ursula Burns pointed to extra spending on its government health care business as a reason for the company's flat Q1 revenue.
