It takes strong backs and deft hands to grow and move a company into a new market area—or even to beef up or align assets that a company already owns in a hot market.
Strategic advisers take a long-term look, helping companies to get three to five years ahead of the market with the right capabilities and technologies in place. They advise top management, investment bankers, private equity firms and other large investors, and are often relied upon to provide a high level assessment of government spending trends.
Investment bankers help companies navigate market shifts and consolidation—identifying attractive acquisition targets and potential buyers when companies seek to divest assets, providing merger and acquisition support and valuation services, and raising capital in the public or private markets.
Private equity firms have been very active in the strategic purchase of companies in the GovCon market, providing capital to help companies better leverage their existing strengths and continue to grow.
We’ve witnessed a realignment of the market as companies seek to tackle their growth targets by entering or further penetrating markets where there is demand— and funding— for support to the federal government.
