Press Release: KAL Capital Markets Advises On Four Aerospace and Defense Transactions in 2018

Please see our official press release here


KAL Capital Markets LLC (KAL Capital), an aerospace and defense investment bank, is pleased to announce that it advised on four sell-side transactions in 2018.

“We increased momentum in our sell-side advisory business in 2018, seeing strong interest from international and domestic strategic acquirers as well as the private equity market across the board,” commented Ryan Murphy. “Though the regulatory requirements for cross-border transactions tightened dramatically, our real-time knowledge of the approval process helped our clients ensure access to those buyers remained intact,” he followed when asked about any challenges in obtaining regulatory approval for proprietary motion control products manufacturer Beaver Aerospace and Defense’s sale to Heroux-Devtek.

When asked about KAL Capital’s outlook for 2019, Trevor Bohn replied, “I think the amount of dry powder companies and investors possess remains near record levels which should provide fundamental support for activity and strong valuations for the foreseeable future. If you reflect on some of the terms of the liquidity we created for California Brazing with Trive Capital or STS Aviation Group with Greenbriar Equity, I’d expect access to capital for privately held clients will remain open.”

KAL Capital’s four 2018 transactions included the advising of Beaver Aerospace and Defense, Mountain Secure Systems, California Brazing, and STS Aviation Group.
