US-based defence contracting firm ManTech International Corporation has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Gryphon Technologies for $350m.

Gryphon Technologies is headquartered in Washington, DC, US, and offers digital engineering, cyber, predictive analytics, and technical solutions to Department of Defense (DoD) agencies.

The company’s solutions are now deployed for Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the US Navy, US Air Force (USAF), and other DoD agencies.

ManTech will acquire the firm from AE Industrial Partners. It will fund the acquisition with a combination of cash on hand, proceeds from its existing line of credit and delayed draw term loan facilities.

The deal is expected to enhance ManTech’s digital and systems engineering capabilities, as well as expand its DoD footprint.

The transaction will also add 1,500 skilled employees to ManTech’s workforce.
