SOS International has announced the acquisition of Defense Group Inc., a Vienna, Virginia-based data analytics and cyber solutions firm that works with the U.S. intelligence and national security community.
“The addition of DGI to our Intelligence Solutions Group builds on current capabilities and deepens our access into key intelligence community agencies,” said Julian Setian, SOSi president and CEO. “It supports our strategic goal of offering a suite of leading-edge, technology-facilitated solutions that drive customer requirements and create new markets.”
DGI is SOSi’s second acquisition in the intelligence market in recent years, following its addition of New World Solutions in January 2016. DGI expands SOSi’s customer base and adds new, technical capabilities in cyber intelligence, SOSi said.
Holland & Knight LLP served as SOSi’s legal adviser in connection with the transaction. Headwaters MB served as DGI’s exclusive financial adviser and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP served as DGI’s legal adviser.
