PreK-12 Education

Published on: 07/01/2014

The PreK‐12 education sector is undergoing a transformation as a result of increasing utilization of digital technology and curriculum, pressure for enhanced student outcomes, and the need for cost effective solutions due to budgetary constraints. This transition is creating a unique growth opportunity for product and service providers that offer a compelling value proposition to a market that is struggling to improve efficiencies, leverage technology and student assessment tools properly, and boost student results. Strategic suitors and private equity groups have long been attracted to the sector and merger & acquisition activity in the education industry is intensifying based not only on the long‐term prospects for the sector but also the favorable M&A environment overall.
