BGL Metals Insider Research Report - Market Poised for Deal Making

Global Overcapacity and a Weak Energy Market Are Creating Near-Term Pressure for Metals Suppliers

CLEVELAND, OH and CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - February 27, 2015) - The metals market witnessed significant assets trade in 2014, with the pace of M&A likely to accelerate, according to the Metals Insider, an industry report released by Brown Gibbons Lang & Company (BGL), a leading middle market investment bank, www.bglco.com.

Global overcapacity and a weak energy market are creating near-term pressure for metals suppliers, documents the BGL report, now available online. Opportunistic acquisitions are in play as industry players jockey to defend market position and navigate a changing demand outlook.

Record high automotive build rates and a nascent recovery in the construction market mean a boon for fabricators, which are pursuing strategic buys to expand capability and geographic reach.
