CSRA Inc. (NYSE:CSRA) announced today it has completed the acquisition of NES Associates, a well-respected federal IT service provider. NES provides specialized expertise in enterprise networking, cybersecurity, infrastructure, and application architecture as well as implementation services to customers in the military and other federal agencies.
"I'm pleased we have closed on our first acquisition as a public company," said CSRA President and CEO Larry Prior. "NES Associates will bring us innovative network engineering capabilities as we pursue large IT modernization opportunities in upcoming years, another example of how we live our tagline, 'Think Next. Now.'"
"CSRA is a perfect fit for NES," said NES founder and CEO Andy Gomer. "Our network engineering capabilities matched extremely well with CSRA's opportunities and resources. Our companies have highly compatible cultures and a shared focus on serving our citizens and warfighters. We are very excited to continue to serve our customers' missions with so much added capability."
CSRA President and CEO Larry Prior first announced the acquisition of NES during the Fiscal Year 2017 earnings call on May 24. During the call, Prior noted "NES' deep understanding of the network that connects customers' mission-to-compute will enable CSRA to eliminate many barriers to the adoption of next-generation IT. These digital transformation efforts rely on the availability of secure, resilient, high-bandwidth and low-latency networks that enable hyperscale infrastructures and accelerate the adoption of cloud operating models."
By joining forces with NES, CSRA will accelerate the adoption of its next-generation digital solution offerings and intends to become the network transformation leader. The key innovations, talent, and past performance from NES also will significantly improve CSRA's win probability on several very large pursuits across the company.
