During 2017 Fairmont supported clients across a wide range of transactions, including many discussed in this report. That exposure gives us a perspective on M&A in aerospace, defense, and government services which we hope you will find interesting and useful as you contemplate the year ahead.
In commercial aerospace, we saw mega-deals as key Tier One players sought to offset increasing OEM pricing pressure and gain both operating and negotiating leverage.
In the defense sector, we saw Northrop finally make its move with the Orbital ATK deal, gaining a range of key capabilities and contracts in space, missiles and munitions.
In government services, the story remains largely unchanged, but are on the cusp of a significant shift as commercial tools and techniques are applied more broadly to public sector challenges in ways that reduce personnel requirements but provide far greater benefit to the citizen or the warfighter.
