MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Booz Allen Hamilton today announced it closed the acquisition of the
Laurel, MD-based digital services firm eGov Holdings, Inc. (d/b/a
Aquilent) on January 24, 2017. Aquilent, which employs about 310
professionals, is a premiere architect of .gov solutions for the Federal
government, for whom it deploys cutting-edge digital, agile, DevOps, and
cloud capabilities. eGov Holdings, Inc. is now a wholly-owned subsidiary
of Booz Allen Hamilton Inc.
The transaction is expected to add approximately $20 million of revenue
through the remainder of Booz Allen's fiscal year 2017, which ends March
31, 2017. It is expected to be accretive to Booz Allen earnings and
operating margin in fiscal year 2018.
The transaction will bolster Booz Allen's growing technology
capabilities and talent base, particularly its emphasis on building
citizen-focused digital services. Aquilent will be the Laurel, MD hub of
Booz Allen's Digital Solutions business.
Aquilent currently provides digital and cloud services for the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Postal Service (USPS),
U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), and other federal clients.
The acquisition will further expand Booz Allen's ability to blend its
consulting heritage with advanced technical expertise to deliver to
clients cloud, mobile and modular technology services using advanced
methodologies such as Agile, DevOps and open source.
Before the transaction's close, Aquilent worked with Booz Allen and the
U.S. Navy to divest the SeaPort-e Portal contract to a third party to
resolve any potential organizational conflict of interest (OCI)
concerns. The divestiture included all data, code rights, associated
assets, and about 30 staff related to this contract. The SeaPort-e
Portal contract will not impact the anticipated synergies of the
acquisition for Booz Allen.
