Increase in Merger & Acquisition Interest

Zweig Group's recently released 2015 Merger & Acquisition Survey of A/E/P and Environmental Consulting Firms finds that the number of firms in the industry considering M&A activity is on the rise.

The survey found that the percentage of firms considering buying another firm increased slightly this year to 42%, and more than two-thirds of firms (68%) report M&A is in their strategic plan for the next five years. Among firms looking to make an acquisition, the highest-ranked reason for an acquisition is to enter new markets. Civil engineering services and firms working in the commercial development market, have the most demand, with half or more of potential buyers interested.

The 2015 Merger & Acquisition Survey of A/E/P and Environmental Consulting Firms is now in its 25th edition, and includes all the latest data on the state of merger and acquisition activity in the design and environmental consulting industry. In addition to valuable data about what today's buyers are looking for, pricing, M&A motivations, and successful transactions, the 2015 Merger & Acquisition Survey goes beyond benchmarking statistics and provides descriptions of more than 300 transactions of AEC firms that have bought, merged, or sold since 2009. These descriptions include firm names, locations, staff size, revenues, firm services, and other important details about recent M&A activity in the industry.
