Electronic Components

Published on: 04/01/2012

M&A activity in the electronic components industry has been recovering for the past two years after experiencing a steep decline in 2009 that reflected both the state of the industry and the capital markets in general. Today, the M&A market is much improved, supported by strong fundamentals including an abundance of cash in the hands of corporate buyers, a large overhang of capital that needs to be deployed by the private equity community, commercial lenders who are once again willing to lend, continued low interest rates, and an improving economy that is likely to boost electronic component sales. As the economy and the market continue to recover, M&A activity in the industry is expected to accelerate.
