Serco, Inc., a provider of professional, technology, and management services, announced today that the Company has entered into a definitive Asset Purchase Agreement to acquire Alion Science & Technology Corporation’s Naval Systems Business Unit (, including its Canadian business and a small number of related contract operations (collectively ‘NSBU’), for $225 million. The acquisition, subject to certain regulatory approvals, is expected to close in the second half of 2019.

The acquisition would substantially strengthen Serco’s presence in naval support, modernization and sustainment, which has been a key growth area for the Company in recent years. Serco is currently one of the leading providers of shipboard, shore and systems installation and upgrade services to the U.S. Navy. NSBU is a leading provider of naval ship and submarine design, systems and engineering services, production support and in-service sustainment, with annual revenues of $336 million and around 1,000 employees based at essential Naval facilities around the U.S., Canada and internationally. Serco’s C5ISR business unit and NSBU are extremely complementary. NSBU will retain its existing management team and staff and operate as a new Serco business unit.

NSBU focuses on integrated ship and systems design, including naval architecture, and marine, structural and systems engineering, and provides life-cycle naval fleet support and weapon platform services including program management, production support, fleet readiness and operational sustainment. Key customers include the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) and affiliated Program Executive Offices (PEOs), NAVSEA Surface and Subsurface Warfare Centers as well as support for U.S. Army watercraft, U.S. Office of Naval Research, the U.S. Coast Guard, Royal Canadian Navy, research agencies, and some international navies. NSBU is qualified under the U.S. Government’s foreign military sales program to provide shipboard engineering services to a range of allied services and is also supporting next-generation naval platforms including Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) and Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs), which are expected to be areas of increasing investment by the Navy.

With this acquisition, Serco will become a stronger end-to-end, full lifecycle, integrated maritime solutions (Design Integrate Support) provider for the U.S. Navy and other customers. In addition, this acquisition substantially increases Serco’s Canadian defense business and adds a new customer, Royal Canadian Navy, and a new location, Vancouver Shipyards.

“Combining our existing C5ISR capabilities in ship, shore, satellite and radar modernization with the naval design and engineering capabilities of NSBU will make Serco a top-tier Navy services provider with a full-spectrum, design-integrate-support life cycle maritime offering,” said Dave Dacquino, Chairman and CEO of Serco Inc. “Like Serco, the NSBU team is distinguished by a hardware-agnostic, agile engineering approach that delivers strong value to customers and allows us to help our forces modernize and extend the service life of critical naval assets. NSBU has an excellent industry reputation and is known for innovative design approaches that address the real-world priorities of the 21st century fleet. This is a growth-oriented strategic acquisition that brings Serco highly valued technical talent and we look forward to the new opportunities this transaction will create across both organizations.”

Vince Stammetti, SVP of Alion’s Naval Systems Business Unit, who is expected to serve as Senior VP of the new Serco business unit, commented: “Serco is an ideal partner for us going forward, given its decades of experience with the Navy, exceptional customer reputation, long-standing commitment to excellence in technical services, and international reach. Having supported nearly every major U.S. Navy ship design program for the past 40 years, we are very optimistic about the opportunities for growth as the U.S. Navy executes its 30-year shipbuilding plan to achieve a 355-ship fleet. Together with Serco, I feel confident that we will be able to successfully pursue even larger opportunities and deliver greater value to our customers.”
