Manage Environmental, Health and Safety Risks Associated with Mergers & Acquisitions
A variety of factors are expected to drive a strong merger and acquisition (M&A) market in 2016, including low interest rates and high reserves of cash and uninvested capital held by corporations and PE funds. Within the aerospace industry, companies are using favorable market conditions to make strategic acquisitions to increase their customer base, expand into new geographic areas or emerging markets, and improve profitability by entering new business lines and/or acquiring new technologies.
