Best Overall Dealmaker

Buyer: KEYW Corp.
Sellers/Targets: Dilijent Solutions, Rsignia, Sensage, and Poole and Associates
Value: $126 million for Poole, $34.5 million for Sensage, with data unavailable for the others
Closing dates: Nov. 30 for Dilijent, Nov. 26 for Rsignia, Oct. 16 for Sensage, and Oct. 2 for Poole and Associates
Why: KEYW was a runner-up in this category last year when it made three acquisitions. This year, its dealmaking again focused on building cybersecurity, systems engineering and other mission-oriented services for the intelligence community. The crown jewel and largest deal was the pickup of Poole and Associates, which brought 1,000 more employees, 800 of whom have top-secret security clearances. The company provides systems and software engineering, program management support, and technical training to customers in the intelligence community.
Bankers/Advisors: Bluestone Capital Partners for Rsignia.
