Engility Corp., the former government services subsidiary of L-3 Communications, has completed its spinoff into a standalone company trading under the EGL symbol on the New York Stock Exchange.

“Today is a significant inflection point for our company, and we expect our independence to provide access to substantial opportunities we were previously constrained from pursuing by organizational conflicts of interest under L-3,” Smeraglinolo said in the company’s first press release.

Engility lists its core offerings as SETA support, professional servies, education and training, operational support, logistics, international capacity development and linguistics.
