Computershare to benefit from M&A 'explosion'

With its acquisition of the US Shareowner Services business bedded down, Computershare stands to gain from a predicted boom in merger and acquisition activity and – eventually – a rise in global interest rates.

Industries dominated by a single firm are easy to spot. The winner has the highest margins, even when charging a similar or lower price; it enjoys a dominant market share, often over 50%; and it has higher returns on capital.

That dominance frequently creates a virtuous circle whereby a large market share delivers the cash flow that can be used to further strengthen the company’s competitive advantage. Google, Gillette and The Coca-Cola Company are famous examples.
