Consumer Products M&A Insights

Summer 2014

Consumer Products M&A InsightsWelcome to our new Consumer Products M&A Insights review. This report looks to capture both the latest macro-economic and Consumer Products M&A trends, alongside our perspectives of the M&A environment and the key factors driving deals within the sector.

In our survey last Summer, ‘The return of the feel good factor?’, we saw a strong shift in the sentiment of business leaders towards more positive expansionary strategies. This year, barring a few major deals, the apparent trend in completed deal activity over the past 12 months to June 2014 appears to be broadly downward.

Whilst we will only see the extent to which the economic upturn has translated into deals over the next few quarters, this review looks at some of the key drivers for future deal activity, including:

  • the improving economic outlook for the UK
  • the broader sentiment of CFOs across the UK,
  • the factors behind the growing US appetite for investment into Europe
  • recent deal announcements that reinforce the view that ‘doing deals’ is back in vogue.
