Is your firm considering a merger, an acquisition, or a sale? Or have you recently completed a merger or acquisition transaction?

The 22nd edition of this comprehensive report includes all the latest data on the state of merger and acquisition activity in the design and environmental consulting industry. Whether you want to get a projected value for your own firm or one you're looking to buy or you want to find out how the details of the deal you recently made compare to other similar deals, this report has the answers you need.
If you're considering selling your firm, use the Merger & Acquisition Survey to:
- Find out what today's buyers are looking for—who, where, and what
- See what kind of price you can expect for your firm
- Learn what's motivating other sellers like yourself, and what buyers are hoping to achieve through an acquisition
If you're considering buying another firm, use the Merger & Acquisition Survey to:
- Learn how long it takes to buy or sell a firm, from start to finish
- Find out how many firms are satisfied with the acquisitions they've made
If you've recently completed a merger or acquisition deal, use the Merger & Acquisition Survey to:
- Learn how the price you paid or the amount you received compares with other similar deals
- Find out if your peers or competitors also recently completed any transactions
- Compare the success of your firm's transactions with other firms' successful (or not successful) transactions
With all the changes the A/E industry has faced in recent years, more firms than ever are including a merger or acquisition in their strategic plan. If you think a merger or acquisition may be in your future— and even if it's not currently in your firm's plan— you'll want to see the results in the 2012 Merger & Acquisition Survey of Architecture, Engineering, Planning & Environmental Consulting Firms. It's the most comprehensive report available on the real buying, selling, and merging activity in the architecture, engineering, and environmental consulting industry today.
Now in it's 22nd edition, this all-inclusive report breaks data down by firm type, discipline, market sector, revenue size, region of the firm's headquarters office, staff size, firm growth rate, and firm profit. You'll be able to make comparisons between your firm—or one you're looking to buy—and the rest of the industry.
If you're interested in a merger or a sale, you'll be able to use this data to find out if there's a market for your firm. Find out what types and sizes of firms buyers are looking for, and see what price you can expect to receive for your firm. See if buyers are still buying, or if the economy has cooled the market.
If you're interested in an acquisition, you'll find out how successful other firms' acquisitions have been and what you can expect to see in a purchase price. Other acquisition data included are the length of time it takes to buy a firm and whether firms are using asset or stock purchase deal structures to make acquisitions.
If you've recently completed a merger or acquisition deal, you'll see how the price you paid or the amount you received compares with other similar deals and you'll be able to compare other important details such as the degree of success or failure of the deal.
