Water IOU M&A Data


Clients rely on our IOU M&A data to track deal flow for investor-owned utilities.

Our IOU M&A dataset offers a comprehensive look at at key trends, transactions, and competitive shifts in the U.S. private water market. The data goes back to 2015 and is updated quarterly. Our dashboard visualizes M&A activity over time, by state, and by company, including connection counts and purchase prices.

This data helps our clients address key questions:

  • What were the biggest IOU M&A deals last quarter and how does this compare to previous years?
  • Which states are seeing the most deal flow activity?
  • Which utilities are growing through acquisition and where?
