July M&A Recap: Pace of Deals Cools as Summer Heats Up - Modern Distribution Management

Aug 1, 2023

July M&A Recap: Pace of Deals Cools as Summer Heats Up After a rollercoaster first half to start 2023, mergers and acquisitions seem to have leveled off to begin the second half. Author As temperatures have soared across much of the U.S., the pace of M&A deals among industrial distributors and manufacturers has dropped slightly. After a rollercoaster first half to start 2023, mergers and acquisitions seem to have leveled off to begin the second half. Following the 27 deals that MDM reported in June , we highlighted just 23 in July, the smallest total of any month after March (22). When looking back as the last few years of deals, 23 is right in line with what MDM would consider a normal or health month. It’s perhaps unrealistic to expect companies to repeat the pace from earlier months like January (50 deals) and April (40), which may appear as outliners once the year winds down. Some of the usual suspects were busy in July. Imperial Dade announced two deals in the same week, while JELD-WEN announced it had completed the sale of its Australasia business to Platinum Equity for $446 million. Beacon, Core & Main, Sonepar, Graybar, White Cup and others also announced deals during the month.
