Business Services M&A


Business Services M&A

Supporting you in transactions in the Business-to-Business domain

The Business Services industry team focuses on companies that provide services mainly to other corporate entities. We serve a broad industry that spans a number of sub sectors, including BPO, facility, staffing, consulting, logistics, engineering and technical services.

Competition is fierce across all business services segments. Strong diversified market players are challenged on prices and quality by specialized smaller players, with plenty of demand for both offerings. The type of demand for business services is constantly changing, as companies in the segment are facing an acceleration of pace in which our clients’ organizations and value chains are becoming more complex. Additionally, fueled by a positive market economic environment, companies have been outsourcing ‘non-core’ activities, resulting in a lack of in-house specific expertise to help guide the business through challenges they face. Important themes within the sector cover Future of Mobility, Future of Energy and Future of Work. Together, market trends result in a booming business services market in which the striving for digital leadership and the war for talent rages on. 

With those trends it does not surprise that the Business Services industry is facing a strong M&A market. Business leaders are rethinking their strategies, focused on growth acceleration not only nationally but also internationally, divesting non-core activities and acquiring complementary services to fulfil their organisations’ needs. In order to succeed, many players in the industry require scale, expertise and reputation, with smart money buying up the talent and business of others given the scarcity of skilled labour across Europe.
