Episode #20 — 23 February 2021 Digging into the Aegion/New Mountain Megadeal

with Mariel Marchand

Digging into the water sector’s latest megadeal between Aegion and New Mountain Capital. Aegion Corporation, a provider of infrastructure maintenance, rehabilitation, and protection solutions announced that it has accepted an offer to be acquired by private equity (PE) firm New Mountain Capital. The transaction, valued at approximately US$963 million, represents a second big step for the PE firm after recently acquiring utility contract operation services provider Inframark.

The convergence of financial stress and aging pipe infrastructure for water & wastewater utilities presents a unique opportunity for trenchless technology solutions providers to expand their market positions.

In this discussion:

  • Details of the deal
  • What is cured-in-place pipe and what are the benefits?
  • Who is New Mountain Capital?

Reese also shares his thoughts on the fraying interconnection between critical infrastructure segments (water, power, gas) that is on full display in Texas.
