“Fueled by a national economic expansion that appears to have no limits, the A/E [architectural/engineering] industry is undoubtedly finishing this decade exhibiting some of the highest levels of confidence, optimism, and growth that we can recall,” says a report from Rusk O’Brien Gido + Partners. Today’s landscape in this industry has turned “180 degrees” from the recessionary depths of 10 years ago. Trends include continued industry consolidation, increased private equity involvement, baby-boomer owners bent to sell, more M&A deals, and more effective integration of combined firms. Rusk O’Brien Gido + Partners produces the Architecture and Engineering Business Valuation and M&A Transaction Study, now in its 6th edition, which contains the latest transactional data from distinct stock transactions along with supplemental data from publicly available sources.
