Best intelligence deal

Buyer: KeyW Corp.

Target: Sotera Defense Solutions

Value: $235 million

Why: With this deal, KeyW doubled its size and made it the largest publicly-traded firm solely focused on the intelligence community. Sotera brought KeyW access to several large IDIQ contracts as government buyers increasingly turn to those vehicles for their needs. Sotera added 1,100 employees to the 1,000 KeyW already had. And eighty percent of staff hold security clearances.

The larger size and added contract vehicles are allowing KeyW to pursue contracts that it otherwise would not be able to.
