The Information Technology 100
When a company makes an acquisition, its shareholders often suffer as its stock price dives. Not so last year for investors in CACI International. Its $415 million purchase of the defense and intelligence assets of American Management Systems, along with some smaller acquisitions, helped propel CACI's 73.6% stock rise and accounted for two-thirds of its 52.7% sales growth. One reason: AMS's defense and intelligence group had profit margins above 17% -- some 50% higher than CACI's existing businesses. The Arlington (Va.)-based company also benefits from offering tech support services that the Pentagon and intelligence agencies need to help troops deployed abroad.
