Security Solutions - Coverage Report Q3 2018

Published on: 09/11/2018

Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the Security Solutions industry has been robust through year-to-date (YTD) 2018 with 93 acquisitions announced or completed. While the first half of the year was defined by Ares Private Equity Group’s acquisition of Convergint (February) as well as Motorola’s acquisition of Avigilon (March,), the second half has mainly been driven by middle market deals. As threats to both public and private sectors have become more sophisticated, broad in scope, and challenging to detect and prevent, Security Solutions industry operators have escalated efforts to expand capabilities and services offerings via M&A activity.
