Wyle makes another private equity deal

Company's owner sells out to Court Square Capital Partners

Wyle Holdings Inc., which broke in the government market with the acquisition of RS Information Systems Inc. in 2008, has signed an agreement to be acquired by a private equity group.

The deal will move Wyle’s ownership from one private equity group – Littlejohn & Co. LLC to another group, Court Square Capital Partners.

Terms of the deal were released, but the transaction is pending the consent of Wyle’s first lien lenders and certain regulatory approvals, the company said.

Littlejohn acquired Wyle in 2003. The acquisition of RSIS in January 2008 marked its entry into the government market. The company is ranked No. 43 on the 2009 Washington Technology Top 100 list of the largest government contractors.

According to Court Square’s Web site, the 20-year-old private equity group is based in New York and has invested over $4.5 billion in more than 150 transactions, which have returned $14 billion.
