Engineering consultant Jacobs Solutions Inc is in advanced talks to merge its government consulting arm at a valuation of more than $4 billion with private equity-owned Amentum Services Inc, people familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

Under the terms discussed, Amentum would merge with Jacobs' Critical Mission Solutions (CMS) business to create a new publicly traded company that would be majority-owned by Jacobs' shareholders, the sources said.

If the negotiations between Jacobs and Amentum's owners — buyout firms American Securities and Lindsay Goldberg — conclude successfully, a deal may be announced by Nov. 21, when Jacobs is scheduled to report its fourth-quarter earnings, according to the sources.

Jacobs' CMS platform provides cybersecurity, data analytics and software application services and consulting to civilian, defense and intelligence clients in industries including space, national security, nuclear waste and 5G technology.

Jacobs CEO Robert Pragada had said on the company's latest quarterly call in August that "multiple" suitors had expressed interest in CMS.

Amentum provides technical and advisory services to government clients. American Securities and Lindsay Goldberg formed the company by carving it out of engineering consultant Aecom (ACM.N) in 2020 in a $2.4 billion deal.

Amentum bolstered its offerings with the takeover of rival PAE in 2021 for approximately $1.9 billion, creating a company with over 50,000 employees and more than $9 billion in revenue.
