Annual Deal Report - Defense

Key HighlightsThe major defense companies constantly make efforts to establish an infallible and efficient base of suppliers and supply chain process to maintain or improve their position in the market. Supply chain is a decisive factor for a company's success or failure in the defense industry, owing to the stringent deadlines for government projects. These companies succeeded to a huge extent in supplying their respective clients with the ordered equipment at the right time, owing to their supply chain prowess. This trend observed during the past is expected to result in MandA deals on the same lines in the coming years.

Several governments across the world are striving to save their economies from rising debt levels and the possibility of debt default. This could lead to them prioritizing their budget spends on reviving the economy with possible spending cuts, including a reduction in defense spending. Strategic buyers and financial buyers are interested in companies that could guarantee a certain level of business stability. This has prompted the defense companies to shift their focus towards their core business areas and to divest their non-core units that render a level of instability to the business.

The global defense industry witnessed significant MandA activity in 2012. The prevalent unstable economic environment and consequent federal military budget cuts in the major spending countries of North America and Europe meant that companies resorted to consolidation as their primary growth strategy. The need to access emerging foreign markets such as India, Australia and Saudi Arabia has also driven major companies to join hands with the locally established companies. In 2013, the industry is anticipated to experience a largely similar or marginally higher MandA activity than that of 2012, due to the aforementioned persistent driving factors. Additionally, the unrest and uprisings in the Middle East and Africa will raise the militaries' weapons and equipment needs, subsequently fueling the MandA trend in the industry.
