UST, a US-based global IT consulting firm, has acquired Prodigy Labs, a Toronto-based IT consulting and staffing firm.

Founded in 2014, Prodigy Labs supports financial services firms with solutions in IT product advisory, business process transformation, legacy modernization, mobile, project rescue, and data science. The firm also provides talent solutions in staff augmentation, customized workforce, and project teams.

Prodigy Labs’ technology partners include Microsoft Dynamics, Workday, SAP, and MuleSoft. The consultancy has 29 employees listed on LinkedIn.

UST will pay a cash consideration of up to $12.5 million to parent company Prodigy Ventures, with up to $4 million contingent on the achievement of certain Ebitda and revenue targets.
