The company has over 400 employees, most of whom hold high-level security clearances. For fiscal year 2003, C-Cubed recorded revenue of $49 million and $3.2 million in operating income.

CACI, based in Arlington, Va., recorded 2002 revenue of $681.9 million. Jack London, chairman and chief executive officer. London has said his goal is for the company to reach $1 billion in revenue by 2005.

Jon Kutler, chairman and chief executive officer of Quarterdeck Investment Partners LLC, Los Angeles, said that the acquisition of C-Cubed is a good move for CACI, which historically has pursued niche firms rather than mega-deals.

"Jack London was in this space before many of these companies existed, and he is likely to be there after everyone has left," Kutler said. "He likes running a public company and does a good job of it for shareholders ? Many of the deals CACI has been doing has been about [gaining] customer sets rather than new capabilities ? it's a way to get into new customers."
