WASHINGTON – On August 8, 2019, H2M Group (“H2M” or the “Company”), a leading provider of intelligence analysis services and solutions to the U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and other government agencies, was acquired by ManTech International Corporation (“ManTech”). Headquartered in Manassas, Virginia and founded in 2014, H2M offers a range of services that support the intelligence community, including geospatial analysis, imagery and full-motion video analysis, GEOINT operations and cartography.
Chertoff Capital LLC (“Chertoff Capital”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chertoff Group LLC, served as the exclusive financial advisor to H2M.
Ryan Hoffman, senior director with Chertoff Capital, said: “Founded only five years ago, H2M developed rapidly into a leading prime contractor serving NGA. H2M experienced remarkable success by fostering a mission-first culture, securing a portfolio of large and coveted prime contract vehicles and attracting highly skilled professionals to join their growing team. We are excited to see H2M continue to thrive as part of ManTech’s Mission, Cyber & Intelligence Solutions Group.”
Melissa Marquette, CEO of H2M, said: “The Chertoff Capital team provided outstanding investment banking services to H2M. Leveraging their unique understanding of the intelligence community market, their team helped us effectively tell the H2M story, communicate H2M’s value proposition to prospective buyers, and manage a competitive process. This culminated in H2M achieving its goal of finding the best long-term partner for our continued growth and success. We are excited to be joining ManTech and thank the Chertoff Capital team for its unparalleled guidance and support.”
Jason Kaufman, president of Chertoff Capital, added: “While private equity buyers and new entrants to the government services market grab headlines, traditional federal IT buyers like ManTech remain very active and interested in filling portfolio gaps. Chertoff Capital applied its deep knowledge of potential buyers’ strategic acquisition priorities to customize a sale process to deliver this outstanding result for our client.”
