General Industrials Update: Second Quarter 2008

Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC


This 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:

  • Middle market acquirors remain active among Industrial manufacturers.  Through the first six months of 2008, nearly 350 middle market deals worth approximately $5.9 billion have been announced within the sector.
  • Inbound international transactions continue to bolster Industrial M&A activity.  However, the factors driving this trend extend beyond the current weakness of the U.S. dollar.
  • Turning to the second half of 2008, middle market transaction activity has shown little sign of slowing.  However, uncertainty remains as to the possible return of mega-deals to the sector.
