Engility Announces Early Termination of Hart-Scott-Rodino Waiting Period for Proposed Acquisition of TASC

CHANTILLY, Va.--()--Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EGL) today announced its receipt of notice from the Federal Trade Commission of the early termination of the required waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the “HSR Act”) with respect to Engility’s proposed acquisition of TASC.

As previously announced, on October 28, 2014, Engility entered into a definitive agreement under which Engility will acquire privately-held TASC, a leading professional services provider to the national security and public safety markets, in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $1.1 billion, including the assumption of net debt.

Termination of the HSR Act waiting period satisfies one of the conditions to closing of the proposed transaction. The closing of the transaction is also subject to approval of the stockholders of both Engility and TASC, consummation of the contemplated financing, and other customary closing conditions, including the effectiveness of Engility's Registration Statement on Form S-4, which was initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 20, 2014. Subject to the satisfaction of these other conditions, the transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2015.
