M&A trends & market analysis

During the Milan 2017 Globalscope conference, the network’s global Services sector team met to discuss recent transactions and the evolving underlying structural drivers of the global sector M&A landscape.

A key theme is the increase in various internal reforms designed to help businesses capitalise as the global economy returns to growth. More details can be obtained from team members or regional heads – see contact details below


Notable recent transactions

Eversheds Merger with Sutherland

The transatlantic merger between Eversheds and Sutherland Asbill & Brennan went live in February. Eversheds Sutherland — the new entity — will have 2,300 lawyers across 61 offices in 29 countries.

IBM Acquires Promontory Financial Group

Marriott International Buys Starwood Hotels

Lower-mid market observations

Recruitment Boom Caused by Technology

The increasing presence of technology in the workplace across all sectors has lead to a flurry of recruitment activity. Furthermore, it has lead to a raft of new firms set up catering only to the tech space.

Business Process Outsourcing

As companies increasingly outsource routine functions, the role of HR talent is changing. In 2017, many companies will begin to recruit individuals with specific technology-driven talents, including HR analytics, data analysts, and marketing talent.

Sector themes

Market Rallies Despite Trump Appointment

Trump’s pro-Industry stance has led US and UK main markets and indices to record highs. That said, the air of uncertainty surrounding the Trump administration's policy, coupled with uncertainty surrounding Brexit, means that some companies are waiting to see how the land lies later in the year.

Shipping Sector Pressure

Muted demand growth will exacerbate overcapacity for the shipping sector in 2017, putting pressure on freight rates and driving further consolidation and defaults, according to Fitch Ratings. M&A activity is expected to restore equilibrium and boost freight rates in the short to medium term.

Automation Becoming Key Aspect of Future Plans

Uber’s autonomous trucking arm, Otto, completed its maiden voyage in October 2016. The delivery was for 50,000 cans of beer and was made in Colorado. This shows that autonomous vehicles, similar to those used in warehouses, could soon be on the world’s roads
