As a rule, in-house counsel used to focus on issues regarding competitors and customer demand. But our survey finds that the new regulatory environment is perceived as a bigger threat to growth. While economic uncertainty topped the list of in-house counsel’s organizational growth threats, “regulatory compliance and enforcement” was considered the second-highest threat to growth — even more threatening than traditional business concerns such as “global or domestic competition” and the “lack of customer demand.”
Compliance continues to be an important consideration in an organization’s overall risk profile. But organizations can plan for compliance mandates so that they’re able to satisfy requirements in a more efficient and economical way and gain greater peace of mind. They can streamline their efforts with a “one-to-many” approach — that is, adopt a mindset and process by which an organization can test once and comply multiple times with various mandates. Having a proactive method helps prepare for whatever regulatory change lies ahead.
M&A activity within North America declined slightly in 2012 and was marked by divergence - with component manufacturing reaching new highs and caution seen on defense acquisitions. Our annual Aerospace & Defense Update explores the factors driving this separation. Component manufacturing M&A activity reached record highs on the back of strong growth in commercial aviation. MRO and support services also saw increases, particularly in aircraft leasing. In contrast, defense electronics and technology M&A declined after a period of strong growth as reductions in defense spending prompted buyers to look for opportunities elsewhere.
