KippsDeSanto & Co. Advises RGS Associates on its Sale to USfalcon, Inc.

KippsDeSanto & Co. is pleased to announce the sale of our client, RGS Associates (“RGS” or the “Company”), a portfolio company of CM Equity Partners, to USfalcon, Inc. (“USfalcon”).

Headquartered in Crystal City, VA, RGS is a leading technology and management consulting company that provides high-end IT, strategy, and human capital management services aimed at optimizing and modernizing critical government functions while creating cost and operational efficiencies.

Since its founding in 1984, RGS has built a reputation for having industry-leading subject matter and domain expertise.  The Company’s unique offerings cover the full lifecycle of IT and management solutions, spanning from implementation to execution.  RGS’ value-added management consulting and human capital management services, as well as its suite of agile software and web services development, help government customers develop and incorporate innovative solutions that drive meaningful results and reduce costs.  RGS’ capabilities and approach to long-term customer support have resulted in a portfolio of long-term contracts, deeply-embedded customer relationships, and exemplary past performance qualifications.

Through its acquisition of RGS, USfalcon expects to leverage the Company’s suite of capabilities and extensive, long-term relationships to expand its presence within a coveted customer base, to include the Department of the Navy, the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Department of Homeland Security.

We believe this transaction demonstrates several key trends in the government services M&A environment:

  • Mid-size strategic buyers value niche companies with embedded customer relationships and strong past performance qualifications;
  • High-end capability offerings, such as agile and web services development, continue to drive demand in an M&A context;
  • F&O contract portfolios remain a priority focus for strategic buyers within the government services market; and
  • Acquirers continue to look for well-positioned defense and intelligence targets
