CSP is pleased to announce 14 completed transactions with a combined enterprise value of $7 billion in the first half of 2021 – a record for our firm. CSP’s sponsors included private equity buyers and target companies in the United States, the United Kingdom and Denmark. These transactions spanned our served market with nine pure-play defense industry suppliers, two government technology services players, two diversified suppliers to the commercial aviation and defense sectors, and the largest global business aviation services transaction in recent years.
CSP continues to see strong deal momentum across its served aerospace, defense and government markets. We expect to announce several additional transactions by Q4 as the commercial aviation sector begins to recover and interest in defense- and space-related assets remains high. Since 2019, CSP has advised on more than 100 deals across our served markets. We are gratified that our clients and the many professional advisors we are associated with continue to view CSP as the leading global provider of commercial diligence advisory services in the aerospace, defense and government sectors.
