A fragmented market with multiple federal, state, and local customers and competing priorities creates a challenging planning and investment environment.Unlike defense markets, individual states and local first responders procure equipment and services suited to their unique requirements. Outside of the U.S. several large national projects are set to begin and offer opportunities for significant growth. Clients rely on us for critical guidance in a wide range of engagements, including market assessments, growth strategy exercises, and due diligence. Our strength lies in our deep understanding of priority market segments such as aviation security, CBRN defense systems, border and perimeter security, and first responder equipment.
Over the last several years, we have advised on several important growth strategy and transaction advisory engagements, including support to:
- Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors L.P. in its strategic investment in Advanced Interactive Systems, Inc.
- A U.S. private equity sponsor in its acquisition of a Homeland Security first responder equipment distributor
- A transatlantic defense firm to develop a comprehensive security strategy
- A U.S. security company’s adjacent market strategy development in perimeter security
