ATLANTA, Nov. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PRGX Global, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRGX), a business analytics and information services firm and the world's leader in recovery auditing, today announced that it has acquired substantially all of the assets of TJG Holdings LLC, a privately-held provider of finance and procurement operations improvement services based in Chicago, Illinois and operating as The Johnsson Group. The assets and business of The Johnsson Group are expected to be fully integrated into PRGX's global operations and allow PRGX to expand and scale its advisory services line.

"Last year, we outlined the five strategic planks of our growth strategy, including the further development of an advisory services capability to complement both our core recovery audit service and our newer analytics-based customer value propositions. This 'tuck in' acquisition is another milestone in the execution of that portion of our strategy," said Romil Bahl, president and chief executive officer of PRGX.

"The Johnsson Group brings a regional presence in the Midwest, a small team of deeply skilled professionals and a list of marquee clients that extend our reach beyond the retail industry," said Steve Riordan, managing director of PRGX Advisory Services. "The focus of our advisory services will continue to be assisting clients in improving in their financial operations, procure-to-pay processes and overall spend management."

Bahl added, "We believe the complementary capabilities and client portfolios of The Johnsson Group and PRGX will enable us to continue to scale our delivery of unique, high-return value propositions for clients."
