Defence budgets around the globe are contracting over the long term. Defence electronics and information systems requirements, however, are becoming more sophisticated and increasingly high tech. This conflict is affecting all aerospace & defence players- how do you create value and maintain growth in generally contracting core markets? Highlights include an analysis of defence systems trends, assessment of recent M&A trends and key transactions, outlook for participants and financial sponsors and discussion of key value-drivers in the sector and potential strategies for growth.
The briefing is aimed at helping both market participants and financial investors recognise the issues and identify opportunities from high-growth and early stage niches to attractive mature segments. It will benefit large buyout and mid-market private equity investors, venture capital firms, institutional investors and key management functions in market participants including executive leadership, strategy and business development, marketing and product management.
"Defence has become a growth area in the M&A market once again, but with such high multiples, it is a question of being smart, not being rich," according to Christopher M. Dabrowski, Consultant for Frost & Sullivan's Aerospace & Defence group.
