Is the US Deal Flow to Cross the Ocean ?
Due to the global health context, this year’s SIRIUS Space Talks will be held online, in the form of a 2-hour webinar open to all. This year’s theme is that of the company deal flow, which is emerging in many sectors, particularly in the space industry.
Free Webinar – Thursday December 3, 2020 – 4:35 to 6:30 pm CET.
2020, a year of transactions in the space industry
The beginning of 2020 was marked by some significant transactions, mainly in the United States:
- AE Industrial Parners took control of Adcole Maryland Aerospace and Deep Space System.
- Redwire acquired Made in Space.
- Amergint Technologies Holdings purchased Raytheon Technologies.
- Amergint became the main shareholder of Tethers Unlimited.
- Voyager Space Holding acquired Pioneer Astronautics.
Could this wave of transactions cross the Atlantic Ocean? Will it reinforce the trend that has been observed in Europe in recent months towards a significant increase of private investors in the financing of European start-up companies? Should we expect, in the next coming months, a multiplication of transactions in the European space sector?
