Baltimore, MD - September 11, 2012

SC&H Capital is pleased to announce the acquisition of our client, White Cliffs Consulting, by Novetta Solutions, a portfolio company of Arlington Capital Partners.

White Cliffs Consulting is the recognized leader in the digital discovery domain and an innovator in applying multidisciplinary high-end technical analysis, software engineering, and mission engineering to the entire end-to-end Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) and cyber mission spectrum. Based in Columbia, MD, White Cliffs Consulting has grown rapidly since its inception in 2006 and today employs approximately 60 professionals. WCC’s expertise and unique technical capabilities will enhance Novetta Solution’s ability to solve the challenges of a rapidly changing and evolving Big Data World.

Novetta Solutions was formed in March 2012 through the merger of White Oak Technologies, Inc. and FGM, Inc. Novetta provides high-end, mission critical technology solutions to customers within the Intelligence, Department of Defense, and Homeland Security Communities and other organizations working with massive quantities of data. The acquisition furthers Novetta’s strategy to become the industry leader in large-scale data analytics in support of the National Security community.

White Cliffs Consulting partners Diane Batchik and John Skordas commented, “We are tremendously excited to merge our capabilities in discovery engineering and high end technical analysis with the considerable large data analytics, cyber security and software development expertise and capabilities of Novetta Solutions. Given the challenges of operating in the large data space, the combined companies’ blend of mission understanding, tools development, and now more extensive mission analytics capabilities should prove to be a formidable force to advance our clients’ critical missions moving forward.”

Batchik and Skordas continued, “SC&H was a valuable, trusted advisor to us as we considered this merger of capabilities. They proved to have a good understanding of the marketplace and provided pragmatic  advice throughout the process. SC&H understood our goals and helped us find the best possible match to further our commitment to our customers, our employees and the Mission.”

Following the acquisition, White Cliffs Consulting will be known as White Cliffs Consulting, a Novetta Solutions Company, and will continue to be led by Diane Batchik and John Skordas as Senior Vice Presidents in the combined company.
