MCLEAN, Va. -- February 18, 2013

Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) announced today it has been registered by the
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ministry of Commerce and Industry to pursue business
opportunities in the Kingdom in support of domestic economic diversification.
The firm will focus its expertise on providing services to government and
commercial clients on critical issues related to the Kingdom’s development,
most notably in the areas of cyber security, information technology,
transportation and other selected infrastructure. The firm believes its
capabilities will be of particular value to clients in the financial services,
health care, defense and other markets.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is showing rapid development and growth of its
economy, including areas in which Booz Allen Hamilton has significant
expertise. “In 2013, the Kingdom is investing in health, the financial sector,
social services, education and transportation and water infrastructure,” said
Senior Vice President Don Pressley, who leads the firm’s MENA operations.
“These investments are emblematic of a growing economy, but they also herald
the need for the kind of smart, holistic planning we’re known for. Booz Allen
brings to the Kingdom much more than just our extensive prior experience
supporting U.S. government contracts in the region. Our reputation is built on
our focus on our clients’ most important missions, our inspired thinking and
our ability to support the full life cycle of programs – from development and
implementation, through execution and operation.”

Booz Allen Hamilton will draw on nearly 100 years of global experience –
including more than three decades of support for the Royal Saudi Naval Forces
-- in support of the Kingdom’s economic diversification and to address the
emerging needs of the era, particularly related to cyber security. The
Kingdom’s government has begun to invest seriously in cyber security with
widespread plans for the region, and is working to increase awareness and
protection around cyber threats – areas in which Booz Allen is a known leader
with a unique approach to intelligence-based cybersecurity. The firm has
particular expertise in providing cyber services to governments and commercial
clients in the financial, health and energy sectors.

In addition, the firm will guide civil government, defense and security
clients in the development of their technological capabilities, as well as
supporting transportation planning with geospatial capabilities, emphasizing a
holistic, full life-cycle approach that integrates technology decisions with
broader concerns that can lead to a stronger outcome for clients.

Booz Allen Hamilton’s registration to do business in the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia is a key pillar in its strategy to engage in the Middle East as a full
partner in the growth and development of the region. The firm will continue to
expand its government and commercial consulting business in the Middle East
and North Africa. The firm’s regional headquarters is in Abu Dhabi, and Booz
Allen also conducts business in Qatar, Kuwait and Oman.

More information about Booz Allen Hamilton’s capabilities is available on its
website in English and Arabic. The phone number for the firm’s MENA
headquarters is 971 2 691 3600.
