ManTech International Corp. has completed its acquisition of Emerging Technologies Group Inc. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The company announced its intent to buy
the Herndon, Va., computer and network forensics provider Aug. 20.
The Fairfax, Va., systems integrator said it expects ETG to generate fiscal 2009 revenue of about $20 million.
ManTech already is setting its sights on additional cybersecurity work. "[We] believe our combined cybersecurity capabilities position ManTech to capture additional work related to the Comprehensive National Cyber Initiative," said Robert Coleman, ManTech's president and chief operating officer.
