Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC
What does 2012 hold for the aerospace & defense (“A&D”) industry? As highlighted in the Deloitte 2012 Global Aerospace & Defense Industry Outlook, we see a tale of two industries looking forward. While the commercial aircraft industry had a record year in 2011 in production and a near record year in orders to replenish robust backlogs, the defense sector is increasingly subject to budget constraints and heightened competition for large programs of record in both the U.S. and Europe. At the same time Mergers and Acquisitions (“M&A”) activity continues to accelerate across both sectors of the industry driven by a variety of different considerations.
