Single Best Deal
Buyer: Booz Allen Hamilton
Value: $250 million
Why: The deal bolstered Booz Allen’s capabilities around digital, agile, DevOps, and cloud capabilities. Aquilent had grown rapidly with customers at HHS, Postal Service, GSA and other federal agencies.
The deal stood out because Booz Allen doesn’t make large acquisitions often and this was a large one for them. It fits well with Booz Allen’s Vision 2020 strategy to infuse their consulting capabilities with technology services, plus to target growth areas such as digital and cloud computing.
