M&A in the Industrial Services, Suppliers & Logistics (Shipping)

Industrial Services sector is growing at a 5%-6% average rate whilst involved in a clear consolidation process. Low operating margins have made scale one of the major drivers stimulating M&A activity and  portfolio diversification, while new niche markets and the adoption of new technologies are key factors stimulating M&A transactions. In addition, when looking at cross-border transactions, differences between countries’ regulatory environments are making large players look for well established companies in their target markets.

These trends are expected to be stable over the next few years: 1. Clients have found that by outsourcing support services, they increase their operational efficiency, keeping their commercial and industrial assets adapted to their business needs and in excellent operational conditions. 2. Despite its low profitability, cashflow generation is stable in the Industrial Services sector and it has proven to be defensive and even anti cyclical.
