Deals keep coming for Arlington Capital's BlueHalo

BlueHalo was unveiled only two months ago through a roll up of earlier acquisitions by Arlington Capital Partners, but the contractor has moved fast to close two more deals as 2020 comes to an end.

The company and its private equity backer have acquired Base2 LLC and Fortego LLC to add more cyber and signal intelligence capabilities.

BlueHalo was formed when Arlington Capital rolled together five companies -- Aegis Technologies, Excivity, EMRC Heli, Applied Technology Associates and Brilligent Solutions. The company provides technology and engineering services in fields such as space, directed energy, missile defense, cybersecurity, intelligence and C4ISR.

Base2 specializes in the design and development of cyber solutions across the domains of network operations, signal intelligence, and quick reaction capabilities. Fortego’s capabilities include advanced signal intelligence and cyber operations as well as cyber analytics, vulnerability research, and network operations engineering.

The acquisition grows BlueHalo’s employee base of highly credentialed cyber and signal intelligence employees. BlueHalo expects to end 2020 with over $250 million in revenue and nearly 900 employees.

Robert W. Baird & Co acted as financial adviser to Fortego and Aronson Capital Partners acted as financial adviser to Base2. Sheppard Mullin served as legal adviser to BlueHalo and Miles & Stockbridge served as legal adviser to both Base2 and Fortego. Eureka Strategic Consulting served as the strategic leadership consulting adviser to Fortego.
