During 2015 Fairmont supported clients across a wide range of transactions, including many discussed in this report. That exposure gives us a perspective on M&A in aerospace, defense, and government services which we hope you will find interesting and useful as you contemplate the year ahead.
In commercial aerospace, we observed acquisitions completing C4ISR portfolios, without triggering regulatory concerns, and mid-tier federal contractors merging to compete against primes.
In the defense sector, we saw sustained, growing interest in C4ISR and cybersecurity with a number of acquisitions. Most notably, Marlin Equity Partners acquired Fidelis Cybersecurity from General Dynamics, allowing them to offer a more comprehensive portfolio of services combating threats and data theft.
In government services, we watched SAIC bolster its presence in the intelligence market and leading big data/cyber security firm, The Carlyle Group. trade private equity hands.
