Best IT Deal

Buyer: CRGT
Seller/Target: Guident Technologies
Value: Not available
Closing date: Dec. 28
Why: The Guident Technologies acquisition was CRGT’s third in two years and second in 2012. Backed by private equity group Veritas, the company is focused on life cycle IT support, but the Guident deal expanded its scope with more data analytics and business intelligence. The deal was driven as much by technology as added customers and domain expertise for both defense and civilian agencies. The Guident acquisition added significant mass to CRGT, bringing its employee count to nearly 1,400. The company also acquired Ciber Inc.’s federal business in 2012.
Bankers/Advisors: KippsDeSanto
