With all the changes the A/E industry has faced in recent years, more firms than ever are including a merger or acquisition in their strategic plan. If you think a merger or acquisition may be in your future– and even if it’s not currently in your firm’s plan– you’ll want to see the results in the 2016 Merger & Acquisition Survey of AEC Firms. It's the most comprehensive report available on the real buying, selling, and merging activity in the AEC industry today.
Now in it's 25th edition, this all-inclusive report breaks data down by firm type, discipline, market sector, revenue size, region of the firm's headquarters office, staff size, firm growth rate, and firm profit. You'll be able to make comparisons between your firm–or one you're looking to buy–and the rest of the industry.
If you're interested in a merger or a sale, you'll be able to use this data to find out if there's a market for your firm. Find out what types and sizes of firms buyers are looking for, and see what price you can expect to receive for your firm. See if buyers are still buying, or if the economy has cooled the market.
If you're interested in an acquisition, you'll find out how successful other firms' acquisitions have been and what you can expect to see in a purchase price. Other acquisition data included are the length of time it takes to buy a firm and whether firms are using asset or stock purchase deal structures to make acquisitions.
If you've recently completed a merger or acquisition deal, you'll see how the price you paid or the amount you received compares with other similar deals and you'll be able to compare other important details such as the degree of success or failure of the deal.
