Infrastructure - Mergers and Acquisitions

Infrastructure is now a global business, which means that companies from around the world are looking to buy assets that can grow in value, while providing a steady stream of income. With other companies wanting to generate returns from the sale of an asset, M&A activity in this sector is expected to be active.

Striking deals for large and complex assets such as airports, pipelines, hospitals and highways is complicated, even for the most experienced infrastructure companies. There are numerous matters to consider including government regulations at home and abroad as well as tax, competition, financing and labour matters.

Osler’s Infrastructure Group has extensive domestic and international experience on a variety of transactions in the Infrastructure sector. We’ve helped companies acquire other operations, purchase single assets and large portfolios, and we’ve assisted target companies in responding effectively to overtures.

Whether entering a new territory, building new capabilities or seeking consolidation, we can help you build an M&A strategy that increases profitability and shareholder value, while reducing risk.
