E3/Sentinel has closed its fifth acquisition since the government services company’s launch less than two years ago through a merger that created it and this latest deal also foreshadows a new chapter for the buyer.
McLean, Virginia-based E3/Sentinel said Monday it has acquired Lucid Perspectives, a provider of software development and systems engineering services to intelligence agencies. Lucid’s operations have been combined with Data Works, another business E3/Sentinel acquired in August 2019, to give customers broader services in cybersecurity and other technology areas.
In addition, E3/Sentinel plans to rebrand its platform in light of the acquisitions and multiple brands the company has added since it started in 2018 with the current name. Backed by NewSpring Capital, mid-tier player E/3 Sentinel was created through a merger of E3 Federal Solutions and Sentinel.
E/3 Sentinel’s most recent deal came in December 2019 through the purchase of training services firm Operational Intelligence.
Lucid was founded in 2016 and based in Reston. The company’s primary customers are in the intelligence community with programs that combined people, processes, data and technology.
“We are thrilled to continue to add highly educated, technical and cleared professionals, desirable contracts and skill sets to our mission-focused platform,” E/3 Sentinel CEO Andy Maner said in a release.
“By combining the industry leading capabilities of Lucid and Data Works, we will provide our existing government clients and our prime contractors even more resources to advance their mission needs in a fast-evolving era of government contracting and support.”
Daniel Ingersoll with Cameron/McEvoy PLLC served as legal counsel to Lucid. Blank Rome served as counsel to E3/Sentinel.
