Offit Kurman Represents DoD IT Provider Fuse Engineering in ZyEdge Acquisition

October 3, 2017 | Anne Arundel County, MD Fuse Engineering, a leader in information technology services, has announced its acquisition of ZyEdge, a prominent cloud services provider. Offit Kurman Business Law and Transactions Chair Michael N. Mercurio led a team of attorneys who represented Fuse during the acquisition. The two entities serve government intelligence organizations and private businesses in the DC metropolitan and Northern Virginia markets.


Fuse Engineering is an IT systems integrator that has provided cutting-edge technology solutions to the Department of Defense other members of the U.S. intelligence community. Its technological capabilities encompass defensive cyber operations, high-performance computing, open systems integration, data storage and protection, disaster recovery, and software development. Its acquisition of ZyEdge—which provides small and mid-sized businesses with managed security, cloud, and network engineering services—presents a unique opportunity to combine private- and public-facing digital technology innovations.

“Adding the market leading managed services and cloud capabilities of ZyEdge to our existing portfolio at Fuse was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up,” said Sid Hall, President and CEO of Fuse Engineering, as quoted in a press release issued by the company. “As a defense contractor and Federal systems integrator, we’ve noted a definite shift in the direction of adopting a cloud-focused approach to delivering IT services. The team at ZyEdge greatly accelerates us in that direction.”


This acquisition presents a classic scenario for Fuse; that is, "1 + 1 = 3”.  The ZyEdge platform and capabilities add depth and further services to Fuse that should enhance continued growth. It was a pleasure to work with Fuse to conclude this acquisition successfully,” said Mike Mercurio.
