"We are pleased that Avnet sees the immense value of our AI and software technology services and solutions, and we look forward to leveraging Avnet's vast infrastructure, resources and expertise as a global technology solutions leader that enhances customers' competitiveness and solves today's business challenges."

The transaction is expected to close by the end of December 2018. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The acquisition will be immediately accretive to Adjusted EPS. Softweb is expected to accelerate Avnet's IoT efforts in addition to contributing $0.05 - $0.10 in Adjusted EPS by 2021.
