EFCG 2022 CEO Conference Highlight Series: M&A Multiples in the AEC Industry

EFCG Conference Highlight Series:

M&A Multiples in the AEC Industry


Tailwinds from the Inflation Reduction Act and Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and unprecedented interest in this industry, have pushed AEC M&A multiples to historic heights. Mid-sized firms are now trading at Large firms’ 22-year median, and Small firms are now trading at Mid-sized firms’ multi-decade median.


Despite the macroeconomic headwinds of rising interest rates, inflation, and geopolitical uncertainty, M&A multiples are holding steady given continued demand for recession-resilient AEC firms. AEC tech-related transactions are also playing an increasing role in this upward trajectory as firms strive to improve efficiency, deliver additional value, and gain competitive advantages.
