Booz Allen Hamilton Closes Purchase Of Defense Systems Engineering And Support Division Of ARINC

Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corporation (NYSE:BAH), the parent company of consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton, today announced it closed its purchase of the Defense Systems Engineering and Support (DSES) division of ARINC Incorporated on November 30, 2012. The transaction adds to Booz Allen’s workforce approximately 1,000 employees, based in various locations nationwide, many of which align with existing Booz Allen offices. Booz Allen paid $154 million in cash to ARINC, and expects the transaction to be accretive to its earnings in fiscal 2014, which begins April 1, 2013.

“With the acquisition of DSES, we’re advancing our strategy to build on Booz Allen’s existing engineering capabilities, and to bring to our clients broader and deeper expertise in technical areas such as C4ISR where we see growth potential,” said Ralph W. Shrader, Booz Allen’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President. “DSES also brings to us additional existing technical support contracts for the US Navy and Air Force, supplementing our strong presence in the defense market. Beyond that, we expect that the match of outstanding people, client relationships, and a focus on client mission – as well as the proven track record of quality delivery by DSES – will strengthen our business going forward.”
