Investment Banker Robert W. Baird Quotes Electrical Wholesaling in Report on M&A Activity in the Electrical Market

Interesting report just released on M&A trends in the electrical market by Robert W. Baird & Co., an investment banking firm based in Milwaukee. The report says M&A activity in this market will increase as the economy improves. In part the report said, "Given the industry's appeal and consolidation drivers, we expect the building backlog of deals to translate to pent-up demand among strategic buyers and private equity firms once the M&A market recovers."

By the way, information from Electrical Wholesaling magazine was sourced extensively in the report, including EW's Electrical Pyramid and data from its 2009 Top 200 listing.
