Morningstar | Willis Towers Watson Holds Steady in 1Q

Willis Towers Watson delivered a fairly uneventful first quarter. We see the company as something of a tollbooth business, and the first quarter was in line with that view, with modest year-over-year growth of 5%, excluding currency effects and acquisitions, and good margin improvement. We will maintain our $163 fair value estimate and narrow moat rating. The insurance-related side of the business had a good quarter, with the corporate risk and broking and the investment, risk, and reinsurance segments up 4% and 5% year over year, respectively, excluding currency effects and acquisitions. The...

Morningstar | Aon Will Not Pursue Deal With Willis Towers Watson

Following speculation that it was considering a share-based bid for Willis Towers Watson, Aon disclosed March 5 that is was in the early stages of evaluating such a deal. However, the company came out March 6 and confirmed that it does not intend to pursue a deal for Willis Towers Watson. Either the discussions were simply a normal course of considering M&A possibilities and a deal was never likely, or management was scared off by the negative market reaction. Regardless, we are pleased that the merger will not take place. In our view, a deal of this size would require significant benefits to ...

Morningstar | Aon Rumored To Be Interested in Acquiring Willis Towers Watson

While it has been rumored that Aon is interested in acquiring Willis Towers Watson and could make a bid in the next few weeks, we're a bit skeptical about the wisdom of such a move. At first glance, this would be a very sizable deal for Aon, as Willis Towers Watson's market capitalization is currently a little over half of Aon's, and presumably Aon would have to pay a significant premium to get the deal done. As such, we think there would need to be fairly dramatic benefits to justify an acquisition of this type, especially as the traditional avenues to value creation in this instance seem som...
