Booz Allen Hamilton [BAH] on Wednesday said it has agreed to acquire EverWatch, a provider of classified software and analytics solutions for the defense and intelligence communities, adding new talent and capabilities.
Terms of the pending deal were not disclosed. The transaction is expected to close by the end of June.
EverWatch, which is a portfolio company of
Enlightenment Capital and is based in Northern Virginia, supports human and signals intelligence, cybersecurity, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, counter-terrorism, counter-intelligence, counter-narcotics and cloud services.
Booz Allen said the acquisition will complement its existing capabilities in artificial intelligence, full-spectrum cyber operations, mission analytics, 5G and technical signals intelligence. The company also said that EverWatch is aligned to its VoLT strategy, which stands for velocity, leadership and technology.
“EverWatch accelerates growth, technical differentiation, and integrated delivery at critical mission and technology intersections with core intelligence community clients,” a Booz Allen spokeswoman told Defense Daily.
EverWatch will become a subsidiary of Booz Allen and work closely with its National Security Sector.
“Combining Booz Allen’s mission experience and advanced technologies with EverWatch’s classified software development and analytics capabilities will help implement faster and more comprehensive solution delivery to help defense and intelligence agencies transform and stay ahead of threats,” Judi Dotson, president of the National Security Sector, said in a statement.
Jefferies is serving as financial adviser to Booz Allen on the deal and Baird is advising EverWatch.
