General Industrials Update: Third Quarter 2009

Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC


General Industries UpdateThis quarter’s General Industrials Update, produced by Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC (DCF), summarizes the most recent transactions along with information on the most active buyers, current transaction valuation multiples and an overview of the public market’s perception of the industry. 

Highlights include:

  • Public companies plan to be conservative about financing acquisitions with cash or debt, but rising stock values may provide an alternative source of funding.
  • In M&A, buyer and seller pricing expectations remain mismatched as companies adjust to the new economic environment.
  • Measures of industry fundamentals remain weak, but opportunities exist in foreign markets.
