That is not the case. Various divisions of EG&G were sold to different companies. 

EG&G as a name lived on well after PE bought Reticon. The federal services division was held by URS out of San Francisco, but still operated as EG&G. They decently dissolved the EG&G name within URS, maybe two or three years ago. 

Each division ran independently, hence they were easy to sell off.

Hi

Another way to look at it is that Perkin Elmer and EG&G merged. They decided that the Perkin Elmer name had less baggage and dropped the EG&G name.
