Download RFP
InterGrowth 2017Grant Thornton, in collaboration with Raymond James, explored the opportunities for acquisitions in the transportation industry from the point of view of interested buyers. Our findings reveal a diversified market ripe for investment: the industry welcomes inorganic growth, to complement the limited potential for organic growth of its well-established market.

The current economy makes for a very competitive sellers’ market, in particular for middle-market companies. As a result, interested buyers have been willing to consider not only the popular nonasset or asset-light businesses, but also the infrastructure and asset-intensive companies, which have become more attractive now than in the past, due to the long-term returns they present.

To find out which markets are ripe for investment and to understand the three macro trends that affect transportation investments, read our white paper, “Using transactions to drive growth.”
