“We are extremely pleased that our shareholders have recognized the compelling strategic and financial rationale for this transaction,” said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo. “We expect the TASC acquisition to accelerate our growth strategy, which is focused on further diversifying our customer base, adding substantial scale to our business, broadening our capabilities and increasing our addressable market. We welcome the addition of TASC’s outstanding employees and their prestigious portfolio of served markets to our business and believe it will be a transformational combination for both companies and the industry.”
