Mergers and acquisitions are part of normal economic and business processes. AV is experiencing an increasing level of consolidation, but what is its impact on the industry as a whole? How does the world of AV feel about it? And what’s next? Lindsey Reynolds reports.
According to Ari Fuchs, managing director of investment bank, DAK: “There continues to be substantial institutional capital available to fund acquisitions or for investment purposes in the form of private equity and venture capital funds, as well as from other privately managed investment firms such as family offices.” According to a recent analysis by Pitchbook, there is over $600 billion in uninvested private equity capital available. “I expect the pro-AV industry to be the beneficiary of its fair share of that.”
Fuchs also says that while the large transactions dominate the news cycles, small and medium size pro-AV businesses continue to participate in M&A action and will “undoubtedly benefit” from the ongoing consolidation.
