Event Summary:

IPFA UK: London: Is Brown the New Green? The Rise of European Brownfield Infrastructure M&A and Financing – keeping the market busy

Whilst Government’s across Europe remain supportive of new investment in infrastructure, the pipeline of investable greenfield development projects looks low. With record levels of investor allocations heading towards the infrastructure sector, finding deals to reduce “dry powder“ is critical to infrastructure investors/funds.

Over the past 5 years, whilst the greenfield deal flow has reduced, the level of Brownfield M&A activity has increased, flexing the definition of “Infrastructure”, creating new sub-categories of investment attracting ultra-low stable returns.

Will this trend continue? What is the future of greenfield infrastructure? Can M&A activity continue at these levels with a combination of competitive debt pricing, large amounts of dry powder and high asset valuations. Will the infrastructure M&A market adapt to new sub-categorises of infrastructure embracing new technologies within the sector such as data centres, broadband and battery storage?
