BTG Sees Opportunities in DOAR Partnership

BTG Inc., a Fairfax, Va., information systems company, announced Jan. 23 it has entered into a partnership and invested in DOAR Communications Inc., a Rockville Centre, N.Y., provider of technology-based systems and services for the judicial court, litigation and alternative dispute resolution markets.

BTG made an initial investment of $1 million Jan. 1. A second $1 million will be invested in February, bringing BTG's equity stake in DOAR to 12 percent.

Under the agreement, BTG may acquire up to 19.5 percent of DOAR stock over the next year for a total potential investment of $3 million.

The partnership is part of BTG's strategy to broaden its markets in the government and private sector, said Ed Bersoff, BTG president and chief executive officer. DOAR's justice technology systems and litigation services will enhance BTG's technical support to the Department of Justice and the U.S. Courts, he said.

Through its relationship with DOAR, BTG also expects to expand its systems integration and software services to the state, local and private judicial environments. Therefore, in a related business agreement, DOAR granted BTG a right of first refusal for three years on the marketing of some of DOAR's technology solutions in selected markets. In addition, DOAR agreed to procure related BTG professional services.

BTG provides technology services to 200 federal courts and 25,000 judiciary personnel under a contract with the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. DOAR has been awarded a courtroom technology contract by the same administrative office.

"DOAR places a high priority on the continued financial strength of the company, and we believe our partnership with BTG will support this objective," said Samuel Solomon, DOAR chairman and chief executive officer. "Just as important are the many opportunities this alliance creates for BTG and DOAR to work together."
