M&A Trends in Home and Commercial Services
One of the strongest and most active sectors in middle-market M&A continues to be home and commercial services. Private equity firms across the U.S. are building out multi-specialty platforms and are willing to pay a premium for companies that have built a solid regional presence within their respective niches. What started as consolidation solely within the HVAC services industry has proliferated into various service lines performed at residential and commercial sites. Companies focused on systems, processes, organic marketing, and customer service have led the way.
