Key High­lights

  • The defense indus­try report­ed 574 trans­ac­tions worth US$62.6 bil­lion in 2011.
  • Deal activ­i­ty fluc­tu­at­ed on a month­ly basis and peaked in June 2011, while Sep­tem­ber 2011 record­ed the low­est activ­i­ty. Sec­ond half of the year record­ed a decline in deal activ­i­ty com­pared with first of the year. When con­sid­er­ing quar­ter­ly deal activ­i­ty, deal activ­i­ty was the high­est in Q22011 and the low­est in Q32011.
  • Major­i­ty of the trans­ac­tions in the defense indus­try were M&A trans­ac­tions fol­lowed by part­ner­ship trans­ac­tions.
  • The C4ISR Elec­tron­ics and IT sec­tor dom­i­nat­ed the deal activ­i­ty in the year, fol­lowed by the aero­space prod­ucts and parts man­u­fac­tur­ing seg­ment.
  • The prin­ci­pal dri­vers of deal activ­i­ty remained scal­ing-up busi­ness and geo­graph­i­cal expan­sion, with a pri­ma­ry focus on mit­i­gat­ing risks asso­ci­at­ed with depen­dence on domes­tic mar­kets, and explor­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties aris­ing from emerg­ing mar­kets.
  • Anoth­er wave of con­sol­i­da­tion in the defense indus­try was seen in 2011 and this trend could con­tin­ue in the short to medi­um term, amid gov­ern­ment bud­get cuts for mil­i­tary spend­ing in the US and West­ern Europe.
  • Bank­ing on attrac­tive debt mar­kets, com­pa­nies in the defense indus­try raised US$11.1 bil­lion from debt mar­kets, com­pared with US$3.2 bil­lion raised from equi­ty mar­kets.
  • PE/VC invest­ments in the indus­try in 2011 stood at US4.6 bil­lion, the major­i­ty of these invest­ments went into C4ISR Elec­tron­ics and IT space.
  • Many planned strate­gic sales of busi­ness units were report­ed in 2011, which may mate­ri­al­ize in 2012. This gives a sense of promis­ing deal activ­i­ty in 2012 as well.
  • M&A activ­i­ty was dom­i­nat­ed by C4ISR Elec­tron­ics and IT seg­ment with 148 trans­ac­tions worth US$26.4 bil­lion.
  • Strate­gic part­ner­ships record­ed 142 trans­ac­tions, which were dom­i­nat­ed by the North Amer­i­can region and the C4ISR Elec­tron­ics and IT seg­ment.

  • The North Amer­i­can region account­ed for the major­i­ty of the deal activ­i­ty in 2011, fol­lowed by the Euro­pean region. The Asia-Pacif­ic region was the third most active in terms of over­all deal activ­i­ty and main­ly dri­ven by growth in emerg­ing mar­kets such as Chi­na and India.
