For Canada's engineering and construction (E&C) industry, mergers and acquisitions have become the strategies of choice for securing growth and expanding into new markets. Leaders in this sector realize that M&As are rapidly becoming a primary method to relieve skilled labour shortages, increase service offerings to better position themselves for large infrastructure projects, and gain access to new geographic markets.
But a merger or acquisition is never easy — especially when it involves deals in unknown territories or markets with their own unique set of challenges. There is so much to consider, from business valuations and tax implications to post-merger integration and staffing issues. Canadian engineering and construction companies know they need M&As to expand their international capabilities — but it takes a truly global approach to harvest the true value of global opportunities.
