Government IT Services 2020 Mergers and Acquisitions Update

Published on: 05/07/2020

Capstone Headwaters has released its 2020 Government IT Services Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Update.  A year ago, we noted a brisk uptick in M&A activity in the Government IT sector through the first quarter of 2019 and wondered aloud how long the market would hold up.  With the fiscal picture coming into focus as the months progressed, particularly as it related to defense spending, the pace not only sustained, it accelerated.  When the dust settled at the close of 2019, 78 M&A transactions were completed in the space, representing an astounding 24% increase on 2018’s previous record year, and the most active year in more than a decade.  Activity in January and February 2020 continued, and while CGI Federal was able to complete its acquisition of TeraThink in late March, the onset of COVID-19 and the impact of draconian nationwide mitigation measures has dramatically slowed the environment.
