PAE becomes public company

12 February 2020

US-based government services provider PAE has completed its previously disclosed move to become a publicly traded company, according to a 10 February announcement.

PAE is now listed on the Nasdaq stock market. Platinum Equity, the Los Angeles-based investment firm that had owned PAE since 2016, is keeping a 23% stake in the company.
