Miami, FL-based H.I.G. Capital announced on January 15 that its portfolio company, Whitney, Bradley & Brown, Inc. (“WBB”), has acquired Decisive Analytics Corporation (“DAC”).

Headquartered in Arlington, VA, DAC is a provider of advanced engineering and analytical support to the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Intelligence Community. DAC has supported the federal government for more than 20 years on mission critical programs and has developed deep domain expertise within critical capabilities including systems engineering, lifecycle logistics, cybersecurity, data analytics and machine learning to deliver innovative solutions to complex problems.

“We are thrilled to announce the acquisition of Decisive Analytics,” said Robert Olsen, WBB’s CEO. “DAC is a leading provider of mission critical services with a sterling reputation that has been cultivated through 20 years of prior performance serving the United States government. This acquisition builds on WBB’s organic growth and allows domain expertise within critical capabilities including program management, systems engineering, vehicle integration and prototyping, cybersecurity, data analytics and development. The integration of DAC begins the next phase of WBB’s life cycle and continues our journey for the delivery of high-quality products and services to our customers and opportunities for our now 1,000 employees.”

DAC CEO John Donnellon commented, “We share Robert’s enthusiasm for the transaction. As an employee-owned business, it was important to partner with a business with similar corporate values and missions. WBB presented a unique opportunity for our employee shareholders to grow within the combined platform while continuing to serve our clients. We look forward to the opportunities ahead.”

Jeff Zanarini, managing director at H.I.G. Capital, added, “We are pleased to support this strategic combination. WBB and DAC have independently developed complementary suites of solutions that will present exciting future growth opportunities for the combined business. This transaction furthers WBB’s mission to deliver a greater suite of mission-critical solutions to the federal government and, in conjunction with the recently completed acquisition of BRTRC Federal Solutions, highlights the strength of the WBB platform.”
