The industrials sector is undergoing transformational change, with technological innovations disrupting outdated business models. In particular, ICT/digital technologies have become a key focal point and an important driver of top-line growth and returns.
We are seeing business owners, corporates and investors completing hundreds of transactions each year across all (attractive) subsectors. Successful companies are shifting their operations from hardware producers with a predominantly regional focus to application/solution providers with an international footprint.
Acquisitions are proving to be an effective repositioning tool, while at the same time creating an attractive market for private business owners to tap shareholder liquidity, and to free up capital through divestments – especially in the context of generational handovers.
