MARKET TRACKER™ FOR THE CONSULTING SECTOR
We are today releasing our latest MarketTracker™ report for the global Consulting sector, covering valuations and M&A activity over the six months to 31st May 2023.
Over the last six months, valuations in the Consulting Sector have remained well above all share indices in spite of global inflationary pressures and low economic growth rates. As for valuation multiples, these fell only marginally by 8% as earnings growth outstripped share price growth thanks to strong client demand.
The Consulting M&A market remained resilient compared to the wider M&A market, with a high volume of deals completed by both Strategic buyers and Private Equity, the latter mostly through existing platform investments. Buyers were acquiring overwhelmingly service-based consultancies, which is a reversal of recent years where tech-enabled services and SaaS acquisitions have been their focus.
