Building Products & Services—M&A 2020 Report

September 9, 2020

Cross-border M&A continues to grow in Canada in the construction sector. Last year, pre-pandemic, 57% of the volume was international—led by buyers from the U.S. and Europe.

But the direction of deals goes both ways—and should continue to do so as the construction sector recovers. These days, many Canadian buyers look to do deals outside Canadian borders. And those focused domestically still track global M&A trends in construction to build into their strategies.

This multi-pronged report out of BDO United Kingdom details how construction companies are emerging from COVID-19, reviews the M&A environment, and takes a hop-on, hop-off tour of construction deal activity in countries around the world.

You will learn:

  • How customer service can differentiate your business post-COVID-19
  • Why our UK colleagues expect infrastructure to grow by 40% in 2021
  • Seven areas to boost your business model resilience
  • How COVID-19 highlights construction’s technology challenge
