Mercury Systems Acquires Pentek

June 8, 2021
The $65 million acquisition strengthens Mercury’s existing mixed-signal product portfolio; deepens reach into radar, electronic warfare (EW), and signals intelligence markets.

Mercury Systems has added to its resources in mixed-signal processing with the acquisition of Pentek Systems, Inc. and Pentek Technologies LLC, known together as Pentek. Located in Upper Saddle River, NJ, Pentek is a leading supplier of ruggedized data-acquisition boards and software-defined radios (SDRs) based on commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components for commercial and military applications (see the figure). The company was founded in 1986 and has followed a team-oriented approach to product design and development like that of Mercury Systems. The addition strengthens Mercury’s mixed-signal processing capabilities and aligns well with its Mixed-Signal Division.

The acquisition is an all-cash deal for $65 million, subject to working capital and debt adjustments. “The acquisition of Pentek is an excellent fit for our market and low-risk content expansion strategy,” said Mark Aslett, Mercury’s president and chief executive officer. “Their capabilities add scale and breadth to Mercury’s existing mixed-signal product portfolio and deepen our penetration into our core radar, electronic warfare (EW), and signals intelligence markets. Like our previous acquisitions in the RF and microwave domain, the acquisition of Pentek doesn’t just provide important new capabilities for our customers; it also enables us to grow the size of our total addressable market. We are very pleased to welcome the Pentek team to Mercury,” Aslett concluded.
