Reuters is reporting that BAE is in talks to sell its US manpower and services business to Veritas Capital for a purchase price of more than $1B. The deal would not include the US intelligence and security businesses, or the cyber security operations. Rumor has it that Leidos had been pursuing these same assets but that those discussions have broken down.
Update 11/12/15: BAE released a statement basically stating nevermind, we're keeping our businesses, thank you very much.
