ICON Public Limited Company (NasdaqGS:ICLR) is looking for M&A. Brendan Brennan, Chief Financial Officer, during first quarter 2024 results call said that "After successfully deleveraging over the past few years as well as our return to investment-grade rated company, we feel we are well positioned from a balance sheet perspective to deploy more capital opportunistically for M&A as well as potential share repurchase. Our preferred use of capital remains M&A, and we have a number of opportunities in the pipeline that we are currently engaged on, which would add scale and capability to fast-growing strategic areas of our portfolio". Dr. Steve Cutler, Chief Executive Officer said that ?As we've previously noted, our capital deployment priority remains M&A. And we continue to actively evaluate assets that will strategically and operationally enhance the current areas of our service portfolio?.
