Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/sb66kx/merger_and) has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "Merger and Acquisition Trends in the Global Aerospace and Defense Industry" to their offering.
Post 2011, merger and acquisition activity in the global aerospace and defense industry has been restrained due to economic slowdowns triggered by trouble in the Eurozone. This study analyzes the mergers and acquisitions that have taken place in the global aerospace and defense industry from January 2007 to September 2012. Deals are analyzed from both the target and the buyer's perspective. Analyses by deal value and volume across geographies and sub-segments have been covered, along with analyses of cross-border transactions and transaction multiples such as EV/revenue and EV/EBITDA. Also included are lists of transaction advisors to target and buyers by transaction value and volume.
- Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the aerospace and defense industry has remained suppressed in 2012, with both deal volumes and deal values dropping.
- Aerospace and defense maintenance and services and aircraft systems, components equipment are the sectors that have dominated M&A activity in the study period.
- Weaker defense budgets anticipated in the next two years are likely to result in cross-border collaborations, which is expected to be a key driver for M&A activity.
- With the possibility of sequestration being delayed as late as the end of Q1 2013, the overall deal environment is expected to be restrained owing to uncertainties regarding the expected changes.
