The nearly 100 transactions on this year’s mergers and acquisitions roundup illuminate many of the major trends driving today’s government market.
The companies being acquired include intelligence, command and control, health care, energy and environmental firms — all believed to be growth sectors in an otherwise flat market. We also have several divestitures on the list, another indication that the economy is pushing some to shed noncore units to increase focus on what companies do best.
The buyers, too — from foreign-owned companies to private-equity players and longtime deal-makers making strategic moves — reflect the continued faith many have in the government market as a good place to invest.
