Q3 2014 – Government Contractor Market Update
August 6, 2014 - By: Kim Dannenfelser
SC&H Group is pleased to announce the release of the Q3 2014 Government Contractor Market Update.
This year is shaping up to be a period of increased stability for government contractors. While the challenging times of 2013 are not fully behind us, there are signs that market activity is turning around, which include a potential flood of new contract awards and enhanced M&A opportunities.
Many closely watched global activities could have an impact on national security spending. From increased activity in Africa to unrest in the Middle East and new insurgency activity in Afghanistan, our national leaders face a myriad of issues that will require the right industry solutions for mission support.
From an M&A perspective, there has been an increase in activity thanks to improvements in the broader economy, a rise in lending, and overall capital being relatively cheap. While many contractors have weathered the storm of 2013 and 2014, there are still challenges to face. However, with increased M&A activity happening and the government poised to award more contracts, brighter days are on the horizon.
