KippsDeSanto & Co. is pleased to announce the sale of our client, Technology Management Associates (“TMA” or the “Company”), to SAP National Security Services (“NS2”).
Based in Chantilly, VA, TMA is a leading provider of innovative, mission-focused solutions for the Intelligence Community (“IC”) and Department of Defense (“DoD”). TMA’s core capabilities, include national tactical integration, multi- INT fusion, digital signal processing, algorithm development, signal analysis, systems integration, and software engineering. The Company provides highly technical support to critical national security programs.
The transaction will further bolster NS2’s national security presence. TMA’s expertise is in line with NS2’s strategy around leveraging technology – such as the HANA platform – to fuse large data sets given today’s complex threat environment.
We believe this transaction demonstrates several key trends in the IC and DoD M&A environment:
- Companies who serve highly coveted IC customers with innovative solutions, to include both services and technology, remain in high demand
- Strategic acquirers continue to prioritize companies with a proven track-record of organic growth and the opportunity to further scale as part of a larger platform
- Continued M&A interest in high-end solutions businesses from non-traditional buyers, to include more commercially oriented companies
