Constellis to Buy OMNIPLEX in Investigative Services Expansion Push; Mike Santelli Comments

Mike Santelli

Reston, Virginia-based risk management and operational support services contractor Constellis has agreed to purchase OMNIPLEX World Services for an undisclosed sum in a push to add the latter’s investigative services to its portfolio and expand its client base in the U.S. intelligence community.

Constellis said Monday both companies’ board of directors approved the deal that is expected to conclude in August, subject to assessment by the Defense Security Service and other closing conditions.

Chantilly, Virginia-based OMNIPLEX operates with approximately 2,100 employees and 1,700 investigators that work to provide risk management, investigative and physical security support services to federal agencies across homeland security, law enforcement and intelligence communities.

OMNIPLEX CEO Mike Santelli said the merger would help the company expand into new markets, deliver more service offerings to customers and provide additional opportunities for employees.

Constellis intends to use first-lien incremental term loans within its credit facility to fund the transaction.

Altamont Capital Partners, OMNIPLEX’s majority owner since 2012, will sell its stake in the investigative services contractor.

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP and Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP act as legal advisers to Constellis in the transaction.
