DYNCORP ACQUIRES SCIENCE MANAGEMENT CORPORATION'S INFORMATION SYSTEMS DIVISION

 RESTON, Va., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- DynCorp announced it has acquired the operations and certain net assets of Science Management Corporation's (SMC) Information Systems Division. The purchase adds $7 million in revenues and 300 employees. It also expands DynCorp's growing capabilities in the information technology market.
 Providing information processing, systems management and related consulting, the SMC division primarily serves the federal government. Key customers include the U.S. Postal Service, the Centers for Disease Control and the Department of Education. The division also provides systems management and data processing outsourcing to civilian clients such as Exxon, the Educational Testing Service and the Tennessee Valley Authority. Operations are located in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Virginia and Maryland.
 According to DynCorp President Dan R. Bannister, "There is synergy between the SMC business, DynCorp's current information services business and our equity interest in Business Mail Express. We well use this synergy to launch us farther into select information services market segments." DynCorp is currently supporting the U.S. Postal Service in its effort to completely automate the mailstream. DynCorp employees provide data encoding services in York, Pa., and Tampa, Fla. Last May the company purchased a 40 percent equity interest in Business Mail Express, Inc. (BME), an electronic mail service company providing nationwide delivery for large volume business to household mailers.
 The SMC acquisition is DynCorp's eighth in three years. It marks another milestone in the company's continuing effort to diversify its business mix. In 1988 Department of Defense contracts accounted for 73 percent of the company's revenues. In 1993 that percentage was reduced to 57 percent and the company expects it to fall below 50 percent in 1993.
 Headquartered in Reston, DynCorp is one of the nation's largest U.S. defense contractors. One of the largest employee-owned companies in the country, DynCorp provides professional and technical services to U.S. and foreign government agencies and commercial clients worldwide.
