Leidos to acquire Dynetics for $1.65B in cash

Leidos announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire privately-owned Dynetics, an industry-leading applied research and national security solutions company, for $1.65B in cash. The Board of Directors of both companies unanimously approved the transaction. The transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to Leidos' revenue growth, EBITDA margins, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share upon closing. Leidos expects to fund the $1.65B cash transaction through a combination of cash on hand and incremental debt. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2020, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including receipt of regulatory approvals

Buy
Leidos price target raised to $95 from $79 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Tobey Sommer raised his price target on Leidos to $95 and kept his Buy rating after its Q2 earnings beat and raised FY19 guidance. The analyst is more optimistic that the company can generate a "sustainable mid- to high-single digit" revenue growth over the medium term, supported by "elevated" win rates and contracts such as the $2.9B NASA IT Services deal grated earlier this year and the Air Combat Command's Intelligence Surveillance, Reconnaissance Support Services Program.

Equal Weight
Leidos initiated with an Equal Weight at Barclays
Barclays analyst David Strauss started Leidos Holdings with an Equal Weight rating and $97 price target. The analyst initiated coverage of U.S. government services and is selective on the stocks given recent outperformance, noting that valuations are now ~10% above large cap defense. The analyst believes Leidos' non-Department of Defense exposure provides support in a future defense downturn, but he sees less margin upside versus peers.

Wells says investors should respond favorably to Leidos' Hanford recompete win
Wells Fargo analyst Ed Caso noted that yesterday the Department of Energy announced that it awarded a potential ten-year, $4B contract to Leidos (LDOS), the current incumbent, and its partners for the Hanford Mission Essential Services Contract. Caso, who notes that the group led by Leidos also includes Parsons (PSN) and Centerra Group, said this recompete win completes one of two recompetes facing Ledios, with the other being the GSM-O contract that is still outstanding. The analyst thinks investors should respond favorably to the news, he added.
