Recently sold by Accelerated

We’ve recently sold four different DoD contracting companies in different areas of the country. For each client, we received multiple offers. Our clients and their acquirers were focused in the following areas:

  • Aerospace related components
  • Specialty vehicle components
  • Power Supplies
  • Sensors
  • Navy related navigational aides
  • Specialty weapons components

Although our clients and their acquirers in recent transactions were focused on these sectors, other registered buyers are seeking any strong, quality manufacturers that are selling directly to the DoD, and here’s why:

In 2019, the US military spending grew by 5.3%, thus, reaching $732 billion, up from $649 billion in 2018.  The sheer size of the market makes DoD Contractors an attractive acquisition target.
