Engility acquires TASC for $1.3 billion

US, March 23, 2015: Engility Holdings recently completed its acquisition of TASC, in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $1.3 billion, including the assumption of net debt.

Founded in 1966, TASC is a leading provider of enterprise systems engineering, mission-enabling architectures and value-based solutions for the national security and public safety markets. TASC has a substantial presence in the intelligence community, space and other markets in which Engility was underrepresented. TASC has approximately 3,700 employees and is a prime contractor on approximately 85 percent of its work.

With this deal, TASC would enhance Engility’s existing broad services offerings by adding capabilities in intelligence analysis, space systems architecture analysis, cyber forensics and cybersecurity, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations, geospatial intelligence, data analytics, enterprise transformation, test and evaluation, secure cloud computing and mobile applications.

“This transformational acquisition accelerates our growth strategy to further diversify our customer base, enhance our capabilities, add scale to our business, and increase our addressable market,” said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo. “In addition to these strategic benefits, this acquisition offers many compelling financial characteristics including significantly improving our cash flow and adjusted earnings. We believe our differentiated business model will benefit TASC’s intelligence and space customers, and we look forward to leveraging the strengths of both companies to create additional value for our customers, employees and shareholders.”

For 2014, the combined company generated estimated revenue of approximately $2.5 billion and adjusted EBITDA of $210 million.
