HIG Capital buys NCI and WBB

Buyer: H.I.G. Capital

Targets: NCI Inc. and Whitney, Bradley & Brown

Value: $235 million for NCI; undisclosed for Whitney, Bradley & Brown

Why: These two deals marked H.I.G.’s first series foray into the government market. But the deals also were significant comebacks for two companies that had been struggling. NCI especially was under pressure as a publicly-traded company. But with these deals, NCI went private, recapitalized and is ready to move forward as is WBB. NCI in particular is expected to be a platform for more acquisitions with H.I.G.’s backing.
