The consumer and retail industry faces significant headwinds that will not abate soon: innovation, disruption from new market entrants, data analytics and consolidation. The challenges and opportunities of such an environment requires the agility and speed that M&A might provide - to stay competitive, now and in the long term.
To help you understand the key trends impacting the deal environment in 2018, we've published a new report, Capturing New Growth Opportunities, to help see where the opportunities are, and to understand how M&A might be the solution to sustained growth in an ever-evolving market.
It discusses how M&A is becoming a key solution to some of the major challenges businesses are facing. It also throws light on the expected top M&A trends for this sector in 2018.
As many organizations are discovering, the right deal can dramatically accelerate transformation, drive growth and increase portfolio value. Strategic, well-executed transactions are in many cases enabling faster growth – through access to new markets, sales and distribution channels and/or new capabilities, or by simplifying and optimizing infrastructure, operations and costs.
In this report, we also look into some key consideration for your business after examining these trends.
