KippsDeSanto & Co. advises advises Outside Analytics, Inc. on its sale to SMX, a portfolio company of OceanSound Partners

KippsDeSanto & Co. is pleased to announce the sale of Outside Analytics, Inc. (“OA” or the “Company”) to SMX, a portfolio company of OceanSound Partners.

Headquartered in Broomfield, CO, OA is a leading provider of remote sensing, real-time processing, analytics, and visualization solutions to address data-driven challenges across a variety of space-based mission areas. Through its software and technology solutions, OA transforms raw data into actionable intelligence for various commands and deltas of the U.S. Space Force, the broader Department of Defense, and the Intelligence Community to address evolving National Security threats.

OA specializes in architecting and delivering Software Engineering solutions that serve the full spectrum of ground system and satellite domains, from LEO to GEO and beyond. The Company delivers solutions across its three core capabilities: sensor data processing, space-ground systems, and data analytics and visualization. OA’s innovative software solution, Deneir, provides real-time analytics and visualization for U.S. Space Force Guardians through its 4D web / mobile platform and has become the common operating environment platform. Deneir is deployed as part of multiple U.S. Space Force modernization efforts for Missile Warning and Battle Space Characterization.

The partnership with SMX will further accelerate OA’s growth in the National Security Space market as well as provide mission critical software engineering capabilities that will enhance SMX’s offerings, supporting application modernization and solution development at scale.

We believe this transaction highlights several key trends in the government technology solutions M&A market:

  • High-end, next-generation technologies in support of National Security missions remain attractive targets given increasing geopolitical tensions and budgetary priorities;
  • Continued interest and investments in companies with cutting-edge space capabilities and solutions given tailwinds in this ecosystem; and
  • Buyers with explicit growth strategies, industry knowledge, and private equity backing continue to deploy capital, particularly for companies with deep domain and subject matter expertise, established customer relationships, and differentiated proprietary technologies
