Best Midsize-Business Deal

Buyer: American Systems Corp.
Seller/Target: Science Applications International Corp.’s test and evaluation business
Value: Not available
Closing date: Nov. 9
Why: This deal is significant because it is both a divestiture for SAIC and an important addition to American Systems. It adds about $75 million in revenue to the latter company, and the former SAIC employees it picked up are freed from the constraints on their business because of organizational conflicts of interest from the rest of SAIC. American Systems expands its capabilities in areas such as testing, engineering, logistics and scientific support.
Bankers/Advisors: Houlihan Lokey
