Consulting firm specialised in M&A for nuclear
For the past few years, mergers and acquisitions across the world are on the rise in the nuclear industry. Originally owned and developed by governments and their public policies, a shift has been seen where large public bodies have been carved out to form independent nuclear companies, joining national supply chains. Now is the time to look at M&A in nuclear.
Following the Fukushima nuclear accident, companies in the nuclear sector have been consolidated to face a lower demand in Uranium with the German phase out or the temporary shut down of the Japanese civil nuclear fleet.
With a rising number of shutdown of facilities, many conventional companies are now looking at entering the nuclear decommissioning and dismantling sector. Understanding how difficult the entry barriers are, many of them choose to acquire existing firms already part of the nuclear supply chain.
This can be seen as well in the new build sectors with nuclear projects in the UK with EDF and CGN, but also in emerging countries. The renewed interest in SMR (Small Modular Reactors) and AMR (Advanced Modular Reactors) makes the nuclear sector appealing again, with a steady rise of acquisitions and mergers to tackle national but also international projects.
At Damona, our consultants have experience in accompanying companies in the M&A process, all the way to operational and financial due-diligence and PMI (Post Merger Integration).
