Merger And Acquisition Trends In The Global Aerospace And Defense Industry

NEW YORK, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Merger and Acquisition Trends in the Global Aerospace and Defense Industry

Uncertainty over the Future of Defense Spending is Cause for Concern

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.

Executive Summary

• 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.• Deal values declined sharply by X percent to $X billion as of September 2012 compared to $X billion in 2011.• In the same time frame, the number of deals dropped X percent to X as of September 2012.• Aerospace and defense maintenance and services and aircraft systems, components, and equipment are the sectors that have dominated M&A activity in the study period.• The percentage of transactions involving "100.0 percent of stake bought" has decreased from X percent in 2007 to Xpercent as of September 2012.• 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.

Research Objective
