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.
