Our agility and innovation continue to resonate with customers, enabling us to broaden our capabilities into high-growth markets, said Christopher E. Kubasik, Chair and CEO. Last year, we also closed, integrated, and are benefiting from two acquisitions and we announced the sale of a non-core business. These actions are strengthening and better aligning our portfolio with the Department of Defense and U.S. allied partner priorities.
