With revenues expected to reach $15 trillion for the global construction industry by 2025, middle market construction companies continue to be in high demand as larger operators aim to consolidate the market. When combined with the macroeconomic view that there are not enough skilled laborers in the workforce to meet demand, established construction companies with reliable manpower in place are commanding higher earnings multiples than ever before. Although the final sale price is always important, our M&A advisors know that deal chemistry is the key to creating deals that are positioned for long-term success, especially since most construction companies usually have active construction projects still ongoing at the time of closing.
While most people think of hard hats and heavy machinery when they talk about the construction industry, a new group of innovative companies are entering the space with the goal of disrupting the status quo. Companies like ASI Robotics are using self-driving artificial intelligence to change how heavy machinery is operated, while other companies are transforming how construction projects are managed through connected SaaS technology platforms. The Smith Holland construction M&A advisors are always following the latest construction trends to help our clients identify revenue synergies and growth opportunities that create shareholder value. We know how to properly craft and explain your company’s value story to potential acquisition candidates within the construction industry and more importantly, we know how to get deals done.

When it comes to selling a business, every decision matters. Choosing the right exit strategy and properly preparing the business for the sale process can have a major impact on the final outcome. The Smith Holland team understands that every deal is unique and securing the best value for a divestiture is primarily based on the value story presented to strategic buyers. Our M&A advisors have extensive experience with creating robust company prospectus presentations that highlight the key selling points, revenue synergies and potential growth opportunities that give serious acquisition candidates enough information to prepare an offer. We take the time to fully understand your company’s strengths and weaknesses and we use that information to build a highly targeted list of potential acquisition candidates, which includes both private equity and strategic buyers. Maximizing shareholder value requires meticulous planning, preparation and skilled execution, and the Smith Holland team has the expertise needed to effectively communicate your company’s value story, even when changing market conditions or other operational challenges arise.
With any financial investment, the exit point is just as important as the entry point and protecting shareholder value requires precise execution. At Smith Holland, we work exclusively with clients on the sell-side of the transaction and this concentrated focus has been instrumental in helping our clients manage unavoidable risks while consistently creating a competitive bidding environment to enhance value. Our proven exit strategies are custom tailored to the circumstances of each specific transaction that we advise on and our experienced M&A advisors have the transactional insights needed to quickly anticipate and adapt as market conditions change during the deal lifecycle. The risks will always be greater on the sell-side of the transaction and finding the right buyer is equally as important as selling for the right price. We help craft deal structures that are positioned for long-term success and work with both sides throughout the entire process to drive the transaction in a definitive and effective manner. The M&A advisors at Smith Holland have advised on hundreds of transactions over the past decade and tactile execution is at the core of everything we do.
At Smith Holland, every customized exit strategy that we develop is built on the foundation of closing success probability. We fully understand that a company valuation is meaningless if your M&A team can’t actually deliver a qualified buyer that’s willing to close the deal at that price. Getting to a successful closing requires a realistic valuation strategy and the Smith Holland team has extensive experience with carefully orchestrating a delicate balance between what a company might be worth today compared to what it could be worth in the future if the growth opportunities are implemented. We provide complete guidance through every step of the transaction lifecycle including crafting your company’s value story, managing the buyer outreach process, negotiating deal structure, preparing the offer and purchase agreements, facilitating the due diligence process, and we don’t stop working until the outcome you envision for your deal is achieved. Smith Holland is a full-service M&A advisory firm and our commitment to delivering measurable results is matched only by our passion for helping clients achieve their goals.
