Ascend has been working with construction and real estate companies for over 30 years, helping them build value and achieve successful exits. Expansive growth of our U.S. population along with aging infrastructure, has created a need for all services in this sector. This need is recognized and supported by numerous Private Equity and Strategic buyers who are extremely invested in this space. The M&A landscape has seen many investors interested in acquiring platforms and add-ons to build national capabilities. Therefore, demand and valuations have seen significant increases in the past few years.
