Capstone Headwaters advised Sensor Concepts Inc. (“SCI”), a provider of radar cross section measurement technology, products and related services, on its acquisition by an undisclosed strategic buyer.
SCI was founded in 1996 to provide expertise in radar cross-section measurements with emphasis on radar systems, data reduction and analysis, algorithm development and field measurements. It develops highly capable and portable integrated measurement systems, utilizing radar technology, to measure and to help maintain the radar signature of the customer's assets.
John Ashton, General Manager/Executive VP of SCI said
“From our first meeting several years ago through close a few weeks ago, Capstone’s pedigree and thorough knowledge of the M&A landscape was present. The entire Capstone team made a tremendous effort to understand the uniqueness of SCI and provide the appropriate guidance and advice that directly attributed to maximizing the value of the acquisition. This transaction was not simple nor easy, but the team never wavered through the seemingly endless negotiations, always with a simple goal of doing what is right for SCI. We definitely had the Capstone heavyweights going to battle for us. A huge thank you to the team for their tireless efforts throughout the entire process.”
David Brinkley, Managing Director at Capstone said
“It has been a privilege to represent the entire SCI organization in this transaction. For more than two decades, SCI consistently pushed the envelope on radio frequency and associated radar technologies critical to our national defense, establishing a unique center of excellence based on a broad portfolio of intellectual property. In the process, SCI assures mission success and crew survivability in the context of the most sensitive government programs. We look forward to the acceleration of the business backed by its new ownership.”
Ted Polk, Managing Director at Capstone added
“SCI epitomizes teamwork in everything they do, and it was a privilege to be a part of their team for this transaction. The Company operates in an environment where the details really matter and their consistent commitment to excellence and resulting support of our nation’s warfighters is inspiring.”
