BGL Business Services composite indices exhibited year-over-year declines but are outperforming the S&P 500 by an average of over 5%, providing higher degrees of stability to investors relative to the overall market.

Despite declining equity markets, the Business Services sector remains attractive in the M&A market compared to other sectors.  Ample capital availability has continued to serve as a catalyst for robust M&A activity, with both corporate and private equity buyers competing aggressively for high-quality assets.  Moving into the third quarter, market indicators suggest that M&A activity in the Business Services sector will continue to outperfom other sectors.

BGL’s Quarterly Business Services Update highlights public company operating metrics and M&A activity in the Human Resources Outsourcing, Contact Center Services, and Fixed Asset Management subsectors.  BGL remains committed to informing clients of current Business Services industry trends and discussing appropriate M&A strategies and financing alternatives.
