The news from investors in middle-market aerospace & defense companies is positive -- they’re awash in deal flow, exit valuations are frothy, and capital is available.
Take for example U.S. defense strategies -- the military is shifting away from yesterday’s focus on small-scale counter-terrorism activities, and instead moving the needle toward large-scale nuclear threats, ballistic missile defense, and cybersecurity.
As a result, Congress has been increasing military budgets across the board. This spending is starting to stimulate PE investment in defense-related companies.
Specifically, the new federal budget calls for increasing military defense spending by $160 billion over the next two years -- up to $639 billion in 2018 and $686 billion in 2019. PE firms’ portfolios are differentiating their strategies and capabilities so they can compete for new highly coveted contracts.
Likewise, on the non-defense side of aerospace, the industry is dominated by a relatively small number of major players, but the ongoing strong backlogs at Boeing and Airbus are driving major changes within the supply chain -- rapidly creating winners and losers.
As a result, M&A activity is rapid, global, and complex. For example, United Technologies' purchase of Rockwell Collins last September won approval from European authorities on condition of the “divestiture of middle-market businesses in actuators, pilot controls, ice protection, and oxygen systems.” Additionally, Boeing announced this July that it wants to grow the revenues of its Global Services division to $50 billion. Experts expect Boeing to be highly acquisitive to meet this ambitious goal.
Aside from divestitures, another path into the commercial aerospace industry is to carve out niche verticals for buy-and-build strategies. PE firms’ portfolio companies are also often smaller and more nimble than their defense industry rivals. Will private equity be the main catalyst in the modernization necessary to support the latest technology needs of the U.S. military?
For PE investors, the question is, how do you identify and capitalize on opportunities? Register now to gain valuable insight as our panelists assess the outlook for the military defense and commercial aerospace sectors when you attend The Capital Roundtable’s all-day conference on “Private Equity Investing in Aerospace & Defense Companies” on Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018, in New York City.
