Camber Corp. has moved to build up its lifecycle support services portfolio by agreeing to buy Avaya Government Solutions‘ information technology professional services consulting group for $100 million.
The companies expect to close the deal within 90 days, pending regulatory approvals and other closing conditions, Avaya said Monday.
Avaya will keep its portfolio of federal product sales and services teams that provide unified communications, collaboration, contact center and networking tools to public sector agencies.
Pierre-Paul Allard, senior vice president of sales and president of field operations at Avaya, said the group will work to pursue opportunities in the enterprise IT, software engineering and consulting services market when it joins Camber.
Allard also said Avaya will continue to offer its product portfolio to Camber for use by federal, state and local government agencies.
Walter Batson, Camber CEO, said his company is preparing to welcome workers from Avaya Government Solutions when the deal closes.
Camber will absorb the IT professional services consulting group’s employees, customers and contracts through the transaction.
Camber provides consulting management services to U.S. defense and intelligence agencies, as well as international customers.
Stifel, Nicolaus & Co. acted as the financial adviser to Avaya for the transaction.
