The consumer goods sector is at a crossroads, with M&A serving as a path to survival and growth for many brands and companies. The resulting activity means that deals require more diligence to uncover value, and opportunities require more planning to unlock it.
Competition is fierce for consumer goods brands, driven by the rising number of start-ups and globalization trends. The nature of M&A deals in the sector are also increasingly diverse in type and scope, incorporating technology, grassroots brands, and new categories.
Our experience spans consumer goods categories. Select experience includes electronics, retail, collectibles, textiles, sporting goods, packaging, and food products.
We work with buyers and sellers throughout the investment lifecycle. Our engagements are tailored and go beyond just identifying and reporting — we act as a partner, “owning the process” to reveal, analyze, and resolve finance issues for organizations in the consumer goods sector.
