Hot on the heels of a number of recently-closed deals, Offit Kurman’s Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Practice Group wrapped up another transaction with the sale of Edge Space Systems. Led by Offit Kurman corporate attorney and shareholder Michael N. Mercurio along with colleagues, Mike Petrizzo and Dan Hofherr, the firm represented Edge Space Systems, Inc. in a sale to Lentech, Inc. The deal was finalized on August 1, 2018.
Headquartered in Maryland, Edge Space Systems is a woman-owned small business that specializes in thermal systems engineering and analysis for space applications. Cindy Edgerton founded the company in 2003, on a mission to provide premier engineering, design, and analysis services to the aerospace community. One key differentiator of Edge Space Systems has been its employees: the company believes the key to developing a highly-skilled engineering organization is to concentrate on developing the technical capabilities of each engineer while also broadening the depth and breadth of the level of expertise within the group.
Lentech, the purchaser, is a privately owned Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) that provides customers with reliable, scalable, responsive secure application and data center solutions and Enterprise IT services that encompass the entire enterprise lifecycle. Many of Lentech’s clients are federal and state government agencies. The company has offices in Albuquerque, NM, Greenbelt, MD, and Reston, VA.
For the attorneys of Offit Kurman, whose motto is “We make deals happen®,” the sale is yet another deal in a recent chain of successful transactions for clients — many of which are government contractors specializing in engineering and IT services.
Offit Kurman’s M&A Practice Group is currently developing a series of articles, resources, webinars, and speaking events focused on how business owners on both the sell-side and the buy-side can take advantage of the current M&A market.
