FAIRFAX, Va., April 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq:MANT) has signed a definitive agreement to acquire 7Delta, Inc., a progressive company providing leading edge technology management solutions to the civilian and defense sectors of the U.S. government.
Headquartered in Columbia, Maryland, and founded in 2005, 7Delta is a privately held company performing critical services such as applications and software development, program management, systems integration, information assurance, and security architecture primarily within the healthcare community at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). 7Delta will become part of ManTech's Mission Solutions & Services Group, led by Daniel J. Keefe.
The acquisition will enable ManTech to deliver services through 7Delta's prime position on the VA's Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology (T4) program. The T4 program is a 5-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract awarded by the VA Technology Acquisition Center (TAC) to help the VA transform its information technology (IT) programs. 7Delta has been awarded more T4 task orders than any other T4 prime contractor.
"ManTech made a strategic commitment to the healthcare IT market, and upon completion of this acquisition, we will have strong capability and presence across the entire spectrum of federal healthcare, including the VA, DoD, and Health and Human Services," said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen. "As one of the largest healthcare IT contractors for the VA, 7Delta is a perfect fit for ManTech. Integrating the strengths of 7Delta and ManTech will create an innovative leader in federal healthcare IT that is best able to modernize and integrate the electronic health record systems of the VA and DoD."
"Joining with ManTech enables us to meet our mission of providing better lifetime healthcare to veterans," said Mike Sawyers, president and chief executive officer of 7Delta. "ManTech shares the commitment to customer satisfaction and dedication to the workforce that have been instrumental to 7Delta's growth."
The acquisition is subject to certain closing conditions and approvals and is expected to be completed in May 2014. ManTech will fund the acquisition primarily from cash on hand with additional funding from its existing line of credit. The company expects 7Delta to contribute solid growth and operating margins and be accretive to ManTech's earnings per share in 2014.
