CACI's Acquisition of Six3 Systems, Inc. Named Single Best Deal of 2013 by Washington Technology
Washington Technology has named CACI's acquisition of Six3 Systems, Inc. as the Single Best Deal of 2013. To compile its list of the best M&A deals, the publication and a select group of mergers and acquisitions experts looked at the 71 deals that closed last year and identified the top ones in several categories. The 11 that made the list are those that transformed the buyer, marked an important exit for the seller, or announced the arrival of a new and aggressive player in the market.
CACI's November 2013 acquisition of Six3 Systems, a premier provider of highly specialized support to the national security community, was the biggest deal in the company's 51-year history. Of the deal when it was first announced, Washington Technology wrote, "Few things express confidence in the market as making the biggest deal in your company's history, and that's exactly what CACI International did today when it signed an agreement to buy Six3 Systems for $820 million." It also noted, "Six3's business in the intelligence and defense markets ... give CACI CEO Ken Asbury confidence that the deal will pay off."
With Six3, CACI further strengthens its position as a leader in delivering unique, high-end, and affordable solutions for critical missions in national and tactical intelligence. The company has expanded its ability to deliver highly specialized and differentiated capabilities in signal processing, precision geolocation, and nontraditional cyber and electronic warfare.
