As previously announced, on December 30, 2013, Engility’s indirect wholly owned subsidiary, Engility Solutions, Inc. (“Purchaser”), initiated a tender offer to purchase all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.10 per share, of DRC at a purchase price of $11.50 per share in cash, without interest and subject to any required withholding taxes. The tender offer is being made in connection with the previously announced Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated December 20, 2013 (the “Merger Agreement”), among Engility Corporation, a direct wholly owned subsidiary of Engility, Purchaser and DRC.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
