Hagan: Fastener Company Acquisitions Were at Strong Pace During 2013
Add to my favorite
Deal-making activity in the global fastener industry continued at a strong pace during 2013, consultant Richard Hagan summarized the year.
“By our count, there were a total of 29 fastener company acquisitions completed worldwide last year,” the president of Pinnacle Capital Corporation found. “That number is closely comparable to the total of 31 fastener deals completed during 2012 and the 29 fastener deals completed during 2011.
Thus far in 2014, “there have not been enough fastener deals completed to keep pace with the last three years,” Hagan observed of acquisitions through April. “However, we do not anticipate a significant slowdown in deal activity. There are numerous fastener company transactions pending and in-process at this time and we believe the appetite for deals by both buyers and sellers is healthy.”
