MARKET UPDATE: EMS growing by M&A
MARKET UPDATE: EMS growing by M&A Just when you think the industry landscape is stabilized M&A takes off! EMS are changing names and owners seemingly daily!
StepBeyond is working with a number of Private Equity and Hedge Fund investors. They are actively buying up EMS companies. They are going after Tier 3 companies with the goal to grow and be acquired. One large fund has the target of growing to $150,000,000 in one year. A big goal but they have the fund and hired a CEO with the EMS experience to do it.
I foresee new players entering the Tier 2 space in the next few years.
[By the way, we talk to EMS owners and chief executives that are interested in being acquired. We are glad to make an introduction to our clients.[
As companies merge the investors are looking to change staff and management to match the size of the company experience they want to become. Demand for talented bigger Tier 3 and Tier 2 experience people is getting stronger.
Hiring decisions are rapidly rising, though they have been steady all year. Companies are feeling the urgency to land qualified employees to satisfy customer demands and growth. The competition is fierce as investors are hiring the best in EMS.
