Defense & Security

Companies and transactions in the Defense & Security industry require advisors with specialized knowledge related to government contracts, budget cycles and other industry-related intricacies that impact important elements of deals in this space. At DunnRush we have direct experience with issues faced by foreign acquirers of U.S. companies to address FOCI (Foreign Ownership, Control or Influence).  This includes operating under Special Security Agreements and Voting  Agreements, as well as navigating The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”).

We believe the development of new technologies, favorable trends toward outsourcing and the challenges of equipping global military forces to face untraditional adversaries will drive increasing M&A and investment activity in this sector.

Dunn Rush & Co. has accumulated significant experience and completed many transactions for middle market companies in this industry, including the following sub-sectors:

  • Defense Electronics
  • Defense Systems
  • Security and Surveillance
  • Cyber Security
  • C4ISR

“Dunn Rush & Co. were amazing throughout the entire process of selling my company! Greg and Kevin quickly learned about an industry most people have never heard of (sonar transducers), and their extensive experience, creativity, and strategic thinking helped us navigate the process and deal effectively with the many unexpected turns of events. They are indefatigable, and were always available and communicating with us, day and night. Their attention to every detail, their interest and excitement about our deal, and their endless patience answering our questions and concerns was second to none. Dunn Rush is categorically different from other investment banking firms, and I can’t imagine working with anyone else.”
