Toronto, Ontario —  The Logit Group, a leading Canadian research execution company, has acquired Cido Research Americas, a trusted international data collection company, to become the largest, independently-owned data collection company in Canada, and one of the largest in North America. The Logit Group’s operations in Toronto, Montreal, and Wichita, Kansas, will be complemented by Cido’s operations in Toronto, Sudbury, London (Ontario), Montreal, Calais (Maine) and San Jose (Costa Rica).

“Bringing these two great companies together significantly strengthens our competitive position not only in Canada and the U.S., but also in Europe, Asia, and Latin America,” commented Anthony Molinaro, Managing Partner of The Logit Group. “It’s a win-win for clients and employees of both companies.”

Guided by a single leadership team, the combined company boasts a broadened service offering domestically, while extending its global reach by incorporating Cido’s international focus as a separate division.

Cido President, Tim Sinke, was named Chief Operating Officer of the combined company, while Logit co-founders Anthony Molinaro and Sam Pisani, along with Paul Molinaro, were named as Managing Partners. Cido’s founder and Managing Director, Roland Klassen, will continue as an advisor, making his knowledge and expertise available for internationally-focused clients.

“We’ve always respected Cido as a high quality research and data collection organization, so when the chance arose to bring our two companies together, we moved quickly to seize the opportunity,” said Sam Pisani, Managing Partner of The Logit Group. “We look forward to exciting times ahead.”

Terms of the transaction were not released.

Founded in 1997, The Logit Group is now the largest independently-owned research execution company in Canada offering the international market research sector a full range of data collection services. Logit has operations Toronto, Montreal, and Wichita, Kansas.
