The transaction, which is expected to close during Stanley's fiscal second quarter ending September 30, 2008, is subject to the approval of Oberon's shareholders and other customary closing conditions, including the receipt of regulatory approvals. Shareholders representing approximately 67 percent of Oberon's common stock have entered into a voting and irrevocable proxy agreement to vote their shares in favor of the proposed transaction.

Founded in 2002, Oberon provides engineering, operational intelligence and information technology support to multiple elements of the U.S. Army, in addition to the U.S. Air Force, Defense Information Systems Agency, Transportation Security Administration and several agencies throughout the intelligence community.

Stanley expects Oberon to generate revenue of approximately $80 million in its fiscal year 2008 ending June 30, 2008. Going forward, Stanley anticipates Oberon's annual revenue will meet or exceed Stanley's annual organic growth goals of 10 to 15 percent and that the transaction will be accretive to its fiscal year 2009 earnings.

"We are looking forward to welcoming Oberon to Stanley," said Phil Nolan, Stanley's chairman, president and CEO. "This transaction is consistent with Stanley's growth strategy that calls for the development of new customers, contract vehicles and service offerings via mergers and acquisitions. In addition, it reinforces Stanley's strategy of expanding our presence in key markets positively impacted by the Base Realignment and Closure process. Oberon complements our commitment to delivering the highest quality of support for our customers' mission-essential programs and fostering an employee- focused culture. We also believe this acquisition will provide meaningful cross-selling opportunities as we seek to continue our strong record of organic growth."

"We are excited about the opportunity to bring a new, but complementary, set of customers and technical expertise to Stanley," said Jodi L. Johnson and David L. Young, co-founders of Oberon. "We are also very optimistic that the transition will be a smooth one because of our similar cultures and a mutual urgency to ensure customer satisfaction."
