WS 360 August 2014 Newsletter

  1. 1. Energy & Industrial Sector Observations • Texas Petro Index Sets Record for 7th Month Straight. The comprehensive upstream economic indicator continues to produce record setting numbers. The June index was 308.4, up 7.4% from June 2013. According to Karr Ingham, crude oil production is at its highest since the late 1970s. During the current expansion that began in December 2009, Texas’s crude oil production has increased 160%. In response to crude oil pricing and expansion of the industry, employment in the oil and gas industry has increased 66% since it bottomed out in October 2009 and seems to be one of the driving factors behind statewide economic growth. (Oil & Gas Journal – August 2014) • PwC: 2Q oil and gas M&A activity strongest in 5 years. According to the quarterly report by PwC US Energy Practice, the US oil and gas industry saw a substantial increase in M&A activity. “Over the past 3 months, we continued to see companies looking to realign their portfolios and divest noncore assets, which provided opportunities for acquirers with cash and access to capital,” said Doug Meier, PwC’s US energy sector deals leader. Almost half of Q2 deal value came from US shale plays, totaling $20 billion and over 21 transactions. Texas was the primary hub of activity, with the Eagle Ford as the most active and the Permian right behind. (PwC – July 2014) • Strategic M&A May Rejuvenate a Tepid Wholesale Distribution Sector. The wholesale distribution industry has seen a few obstacles recently. However, according to Deloitte Consulting LLP, more strategic M&A deals could help propel the entire industry. Strategic M&A deals bring the advantages of scale and help strengthen a company’s economic outlook. Differentiation and transformational deals will drive efficiencies across the wholesale distribution value chain. In addition, increasing M&A through financial buyers, primarily PE firms, will likely create consolidation among the sector. According to Larry Hitchcock, a principal with Deloitte’s Consumer and Industrial Products practice, “Strategic transformational M&A, properly executed, can serve as a powerful engine for much-needed growth and value creation.” (Deloitte- April 2014) 102 Decker Court Suite 204 Irving, Texas 75062 972.831.1300 WS-iBank.com Broader Middle Market M&A Trends - 1,000 2,000 3,000 4,000 5,000 6,000 2004200520062007200820092010201120122013LTMHistorical M&A Volume(Completed Deals < $500 Million) 10 Year Avg. = 3,6837.9x9.4x8.4x9.2x8.4x7.1x7.4x8.5x7.4x8.2x7.8x0.0x2.0x4.0x6.0x8.0x10.0x2004200520062007200820092010201120122013LTMTransaction Valuations(EBITDA Multiple; Completed Deals<$500 Million) Sector Update | August 2014 phone 972.831.1300 | web WS-iBank.com
