Security Solutions - Coverage Report December 2020

Published on: 12/08/2020

Capstone Headwaters has released its Security Solutions December Update, available for free download below.

As the pandemic swept across the globe, strategic and private equity buyers focused on internal risk mitigation strategies to assess operational and liquidity concerns.  In addition, sellers have largely delayed exits as owners assess valuation impacts and look for enhanced visibility into capital markets. As vaccine and political uncertainties ease, Capstone believes 2021 will yield a window of opportunity for sellers, as private equity buyers remain flush with capital and strategic buyers become less concerned with their own liquidity.

Report highlights include:

  • Security Solutions industry  has displayed defensibility in Residential markets, while experiencing softness in Commercial applications as enterprises delayed new security projects in Q2
  • Leading players have continued to invest organically and inorganically in smart technologies that provide real-time threat visibility to capitalize on long-term growth trends
  • Transaction activity rebounded in Q3, rising 67% quarter-over-quarter as buyers selectively seek quality assets that have displayed defensibility through the COVID-19 downturn
