IRVINE, CA: Resources Connection, a professional services firm, acquired strategic communications firm Sitrick & Co., as well as corporate advisory and restructuring firm Brincko Associates, for an for an initial $43.3 million, of which $28.2 million was cash. The two firms will be combined to form a corporate advisory and restructuring subsidiary called Sitrick Brincko Group.

"Both of our businesses will operate independently, so we'll continue all of our practice areas, but also we will serve as a one-stop shop for people doing restructuring and work that way," Michael Sitrick, chairman and CEO of Sitrick & Co. told PRWeek. Sitrick will also serve as chairman and CEO of the new subsidiary, with John Brincko as president and COO.

Between January 2008 and June 2009, Sitrick & Co. had revenue of $24.4 million, and Brincko Associates took in $14.4 million, Resources released in a statement.

Sitrick said he had been in talks with Resources for several years and decided the timing was right because "there are a lot of companies that, quite frankly, need to reorganize and should be using Chapter 11 to reorganize… so we expect, we're anticipating a wave of Chapter 11 reorganizations over the next several years."

None of the agency's clients or employees will see any differences or change, Sitrick said.
