U.S. Government MSP Acquired: Perspecta Buys Knight Point Systems

U.S. government services provider Perspecta has acquired Knight Point Systems from Reston, Virginia for $250 million.

The acquisition bolsters Chantilly, Virginia-based Perspecta’s cloud, cyber, digital transformation, and enterprise IT offerings, according to the company.

Founded in 2006, Knight Point is an end-to-end managed services and solutions provider focusing on cloud computing, digital transformation, cybersecurity, and “agile DevSecOps environments.”

Knight Point works with government agencies in the environment and energy, healthcare, labor, transportation, education, finance, and intelligence sectors. The company has more than 250 employees, all of whom will join Perspecta, according to president and CEO Mac Curtis.

Curtis also commented on the deal:

"This is a great first acquisition for Perspecta that fits within our capital allocation model and strengthens our capability set. We consider Knight Point to be complementary to Perspecta's culture and offerings, while accelerating our growth strategy."

Bob Eisiminger, chief executive officer of Knight Point, also commented:

"As we looked for opportunities to grow our business, it became evident that the scale, strategy and compelling growth engine offered by Perspecta was the perfect home for our company, customers and employees. It was so important to me that we identify a company that will value our employees and honor our mission to successfully serve federal agencies. I am completely confident that moving forward with Perspecta was the right decision on every level."

Perspecta began operating in June 2018 after DXC Technology separated its U.S. Public Sector (USPS) business and combined it with Vencore Holding and KeyPoint Government Solutions to form the publicly traded Perspecta.
