M&A and Aerospace & Defense

Industry advantage

Notwithstanding the somewhat unpredictable environment the Aerospace & Defense (A&D) industry finds itself currently in, it could continue to see some interesting merger and acquisition (M&A) activity. Continued focus on growth both organically and through M&A as consolidation through integration of tier-one and tier-two suppliers is expected to rise and large original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) continue to acquire smaller companies to fill capability gaps. In this fast paced and difficult environment, it is critical to remain competitive and strategic.
