“This transaction represents companies looking for high-end, differentiated capabilities and solutions in key growth areas like cyber,” John Song, a managing director at Baird, told GovCon Wire.

“Huntington Ingalls is a great home for G2 to cross sell their capabilities and innovation to a much broader base of customers,” Song added.
