As a growing number of companies target their attention on core business functions, outsourcing vendors have become crucial to their success.

At Morgan & Westfield, we have M&A professionals who specialize in the service industry that enable us to efficiently meet the diverse needs of each of our service industry clients. But just as importantly, our expert team helps us to maximize the value our clients receive from selling their businesses. The U.S. economy has rapidly transitioned toward a service-based economy. This evolution is the hallmark of any mature economy, and the service industry will play an important role in U.S. economic growth for the foreseeable future. This market transition places business owners in the optimal position to exit the market.

At Morgan & Westfield, our professionals can utilize these positive trends to help you get the best price for your business.

An industry of extreme depth and breadth, globalization promotes M&A activity as service providers build market share and expand overseas. Companies in this sector tend to be people-rich and asset-light businesses with rising valuations. The demand for business service companies is driving intriguing activity in the market. Because more companies are expanding internationally and building up their market shares, new M&A opportunities are emerging.

Target clients in the industry are normally other businesses and corporations. The service industry is in an economic growth phase because many businesses have increasingly depended on third-party specialists to leverage industry-specific expertise and reduce labor costs. The industry is also experiencing a rapid rate of technological innovation and change. Adapting to evolving technology and consumer behavior is the key to success.

An industrial and business service is considered to be any company that provides B2B products or services across a vast array of industries. Currently, this is a particularly strong area of interest with private equity parties across North America because services businesses are typically quite resilient. Also, they often serve as a bolt-on acquisition or platform investment. Contact us today to explore how we can help you with your company sale or acquisition.
