Defense, aerospace and government technology are strategic industries. And DM&A is their strategic chronicle.
Only one service focuses on
M&A activity in our industry.
DM&A: the industry standard
since 1989. Innovating still.

More than $20 billion is spent every year on merger and acquisition activity in the defense, aerospace, and government technology markets. The DACIS Defense Mergers & Acquisitions (DM&A) service is dedicated to covering activity in this vast marketplace. Since 1989, U.S. and international defense companies, investment banks and advisors, consultancies, and government organizations have all relied upon DACIS DM&A for information and analysis that makes sense.

  • Coverage of defense, aerospace (military and commercial), and government markets, with analysis of U.S. and international deals
  • Deals involving both public and privately-held companies
  • Analysis of diversifications and other activity outside the industry

DACIS DM&A complements the DACIS Professional Edition, providing up-to-date coverage of the industry's M&A activity illuminated by our proprietary analysis and cutting-edge online features. News and information abound, but DACIS DM&A delivers perspective and insight that help you understand the players and trends taking place in the markets that matter to you. 

DACIS DM&A is more than information, it’s a true service.

  • DM&A Database Module. U.S. intelligence agencies, the biggest investment firms on Wall Street, and the defense and aerospace industry's top 10 firms all rely on DACIS DM&A. The database contains more than 13,000 records, including transactions going back to the beginning of the 1980s. New transactions are added daily, while older transactions are updated with new information as it becomes available, including financial information from SEC filings.

  • Private Equity/Portfolio Service. An exclusive listing of the defense, aerospace, and government technology holdings of private equity firms. Organized by sector and linked with the rest of DACIS including the DM&A Database. Large and small, DACIS DM&A has information on more than 160 PE firms—and then more than 250 portfolio companies they own.
