Jul 14, 2016

ARLINGTON, VA – aXseum Solutions, LLC is proud to announce its acquisition of CIS Federal, Inc. (CIS), a leader in Information Technology, Nuclear Support Services, Program Management, Acquisition and Contracting Support, and, Logistics Management services to the U.S. Federal Government.

For 26 years, CIS has delivered a diverse array of cutting-edge solutions and services for its clients in the Defense arena, Intelligence Community, and Civilian Federal Agencies. CIS’ focus on continuous improvement in service excellence has consistently contributed to the mission success of its clients.

This strategic acquisition will combine aXseum’s strengths in worldwide logistics, IT, and large-scale government projects for defense agencies with CIS’ focus on defense and civilian agencies to broaden and enhance aXseum’s service portfolio. Combining both companies’ approach to customer service and uniting their bases of experience will facilitate surpassing client expectations more easily.

CIS is now an affiliate of aXseum and both companies will continue to do what they do best – but will extend to provide value-added services for the benefit of each other’s respective clients. This capability will allow both companies to forge even stronger value propositions for the federal communities that they serve.

CIS’ team, strategy, and core leadership will continue in the operation of the firm as will their demonstrated commitment to their partners, clients, and client missions.

Michael Perez, the current CEO of aXseum and the new owner and CEO of CIS, states that, “The CIS personnel are well known for displaying industriousness, conscientiousness, and diligence in performing tasks.  Together, aXseum and CIS will continue providing the highest standards of excellence routinely surpassing client expectations.    The combination of a broader market position and the outstanding past-performance from both companies creates a strong platform from which to emerge as the federal budget begins to normalize.”

Douglas van Norden, COO of CIS, on the compatibility of the two companies, stated, “Our firms’ clients will benefit from this newly expanded palette of capabilities – as well as from the fresh creative energy that this thoughtful fusion of offerings makes possible.”

The acquisition was advised and assisted by Altus Associates, LLC. Financing related to the transaction was provided by Xenith Bank. Further terms will not be disclosed.
