Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC


This quarter’s Metals Update, produced by Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC (DCF), summarizes the most recent transactions within this industry 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:

  • Metals M&A activity is expected to grow in the second half of 2012, driven by strategic cash and restructuring in emerging markets.
  • The Metals market appears to be regaining momentum in 2Q12 as the average purchase price multiple increased to 8.3x.
  • Overproduction in China has caused a number of countries to take preventative measures to limit imports in order to protect domestic producers.
