Private Equity Investing in Aerospace Companies

New York, NY
October 1, 2015

8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The commercial aerospace sector is on its strongest run ever -- a combination of cyclical recovery and secular strength in emerging market economies.

And defense spending is no longer perceived to be in danger of a long term decline.

What does all of this mean for private equity investors?

  • On the commercial side, investors can take advantage of tremendous visibility. The order books for airplane manufacturers are public, and the backlogs for commercial aircraft are at record levels. The biggest challenge now facing plane makers is to ramp up production to meet the record $1.8 trillion of orders they have booked for the coming decade.
  • On the defense side in the U. S., while appropriations are annual, program planning in the Executive Branch and authorizations in Congress provide insight into what the Executive Branch and Congress are planning for defense spending years in advance.

Panelists at this conference from The Capital Roundtable will discuss both the commercial and defense aerospace sectors, and the various niches and subsectors within each.

Sheppard Mullin Corporate Partner Jason Northcutt will present on "Defense Aerospace Overview - Four Middle-Market Dealmakers Exchange Predictions About Marketplace"
