KEYW Completes Acquisition Of Poole & Associates, Inc.

HANOVER, Md., Oct. 2, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:KEYW) is pleased to announce the completion of the acquisition of Poole & Associates, Inc. (Poole) that was announced on September 10, 2012. As previously noted in our press release on September 10, 2012, the acquisition is expected to be immediately accretive to earnings, subject to final purchase price accounting. With the closing of this acquisition, KEYW now has over 1,000 employees, more than 800 of which hold at least a Top Secret security clearance.

Under the previously disclosed terms of the agreement, KEYW purchased all of the outstanding capital stock of Poole for $116.0 million in cash and 794,913 shares of KEYW stock. The number of shares of KEYW stock was calculated by dividing $10.0 million by the average closing price of KEYW common stock as reported on the NASDAQ Global Market over the last ten trading days ending three calendar days prior to closing.

In addition to funds provided by KEYW's recently completed secondary common stock offering, further financing for the transaction is being provided through new senior secured credit facilities in the amount of $100 million lead arranged by RBC Capital Markets. Citibank, NA is a co-lead arranger and joint bookrunner for the facilities. In addition to funding a portion of the Poole acquisition, the credit facilities are available to fund the Company's ongoing working capital requirements, possible future acquisitions, and for other general corporate purposes.
