Jean Stack, Managing Director at Baird, talks trends in mergers and acquisitions in the federal contracting space

The CEO of Northrop Grumman Kathy Warton says the mergers and acquisitions market could be strong for the next 20 years, according to Defense News.

  • Factors driving high mergers and acquisitions activity are anticipation of tax changes, anticipation of increasing budget pressure and the possible impact on defense budgets, and very strong capital markets, according to Jean Stack, Managing Director at Baird.
  • Stack said creating bottom line synergies and cost savings and filling capabilities gaps are some of the reasons companies are acquiring other companies.
  • Factors that could dampen enthusiasm for mergers and acquisitions are increasing interest rates, possible budget unpredictability and major changes in capital markets, said Stack.
