Consumer M&A Watch – June 2021 Coverage

By Emily Halstenberg | June 24, 2021

Branded Goods Edition –  June 2021

Actionable intelligence for leaders in the Consumer Products and Retail industry

The Consumer Branded Goods sector continues to receive attention from both strategic and financial investors. The deal activity has increased dramatically in Q2 2021 versus the same period in 2020. Strategics are no longer hesitant to be acquisitive and use their resources to expand geographic reach, diversify sales channels, and reach targeted consumer groups via acquisition of the best-performing brands.

COVID-19 has dramatically changed consumer habits, which affected certain consumer-branded categories. While several branded goods categories took a major hit during the pandemic, such as luxury goods and apparel, other categories performed well including conventional food & beverage products, in-home products, and personal care products. Global consumers are shifting their loyalty to certain brands that offer healthy products and promote environmental sustainability and social responsibility. Due to COVID-19, many brands had to rethink their sales strategies and shift from traditional channels – retail stores – towards online channels – e-commerce. Brands that take the time to understand the changes to consumer behavior and attitudes will create an opportunity for innovating how new value can be created and delivered.

7 Mile Advisors has completed several transactions within the Branded Goods space. These transactions span the major categories of branded goods including food & beverage, cleaning products, recreational products, personal care, and others. Most recently, 7MA represented Innovasource, a leading household and industrial cleaning products company, on its sale to a $3b market cap publicly traded multinational CPG company. Our extensive experience in the sector lead by Mark Landry, a Managing Director with an impressive career with Unilever spanning more than 20 years, provides us with valuable insights into the M&A market, active investors and strategic buyers, and valuation trends.
