Generational Equity, a leading mergers and acquisition advisor for privately help businesses, is growing its business with more deals involving foreign buyers who are anxious to make strategic acquisitions of U.S. privately held firms.
"There continues to be strong confidence in the U.S. economy by foreign investors," said Terry Johnson, Chief Revenue and Strategy Officer with Generational Equity. "We are finding significant opportunities to identify foreign investors interested in acquiring the North American companies we represent."
The United States topped the A.T. Kearney 2017 Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index for the fifth year in a row. According to the survey, investors are drawn to the health of and the overwhelmingly positive outlook for the American economy this year.
In addition, the enduring attractiveness of the American market in terms of both its size and its transparent and relatively efficient legal and regulatory environment continue to make it a highly attractive investment location.
Recently Generational Equity announced the sale of its client, Houzer, Inc., based in Hamilton, New Jersey, to Hamat Group, Ltd of Israel. Hamat Group, is a publicly traded company on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.
"This deal is an excellent example of a foreign strategic buyer expanding its presence in the U.S. with complimentary products. Houzer distributes a line of sinks and Hamat makes designer faucets, creating multiple marketing synergies," said Dwight Jacobs, Executive Vice President, Mergers and Acquisitions with Generational Equity.
In addition, Generational Capital Markets, Inc., Member FINRA/SIPC, recently arranged the sale of its client, CEC Controls Company Inc., to Wood Group. CEC Controls is based in Warren, Michigan. The firm acquiring CEC Controls, Wood Group, is based in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Through the acquisition, Wood Group's automation and control division will be able to expand into the Midwest U.S. and develop relationships with the American original equipment manufacturers.
"Too many business owners focus only on their main competition or regional players when they think about selling their business," said Johnson.
"Foreign investors have significant funding and great faith in the U.S. economy and should not be overlooked. Our global network of strategic buyers is a significant value add and one of the key benefits we bring to our clients."
