M&A Sector Spotlight: Consumer deals take flight

July 25, 2024 | Virtual Event

  • Event Date: Thursday, July 25
  • Event Time: 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT

The value of consumer M&A deals picked up strongly in the US since 2023, but the pattern of deals may be changing with companies seeking to expand their portfolio of brands. With the return of inflation post-pandemic and a squeeze of consumer spending power, the focus for M&A shifted to cost efficiency and consolidation.

Join Datasite during the live roundtable discussion on Thursday, July 25 as a panel of M&A experts explore the outlook for consumer M&A deals and what we can expect for the second half of the year. 

Topics include:

  • How secure are we in terms of the macro-economy and consumer confidence and spending?
  • What economic threats to consumer M&A still linger? (A rebound of inflation? Fed rates higher for longer than expected? Could there still be a downturn for households and consumers?)
  • What will be drivers of consumer M&A in 2024? Will companies be looking to expand their portfolios by acquiring new brands? Or will the focus be on consolidation and cost efficiencies? (Presumably, this will be significantly influenced by the consumer economy outlook mentioned above.)
  • What sub-sectors within consumer are likely to see most activity and what will be the drivers? Food, beverages, personal care etc?
  • What role will private equity play in consumer M&A in 2024? Does the higher interest rate environment strengthen the hand of corporate buyers over leveraged PE deals?

As usual, there will be plenty of time for Q&A and polling during the live webinar so you can provide your own perspective and benchmark against your peers.
