Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC

The metals industry continues to experience significant mergers and acquisitions activity driven by the following trends:

  • Changing industry dynamics are giving owners an opportunity to re-think their long-term strategies and become active buyers or sellers.
  • Companies at all levels of the value chain are looking for ways to competitively source materials in order to ensure supply and potentially gain purchasing synergies which is driving industry consolidation.
  • Strong demand for metals in most end-markets is helping to boost profitability thus leading to higher valuations.
  • As an alternative to paying rising transportation costs to ship materials, larger players are attempting to increase their geographic footprint. Regional operations can be a viable alternative in executing this strategy, trend that will likely drive mergers and acquisitions activity.
  • Valuations of metals firms are near the long-term average, which means the expectations of both buyers and sellers are closely aligned.
