M(M)&A: WELCOME TO THE GOVCON SMACKDOWN.

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) in GovCon is nothing new, but the playing field is starting to look less like a game of golf, and more like a round of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Somewhere along the way, this game of buying and building went from civilized quiet applause, to a raw and brutal contact sport.

In an industry where, “do we go for scale, diversification, or capability” has become a classic Catch-22, GovCons are working hard to determine the best way to build their empires. And they are empires, where the term “big” just keeps getting bigger.
