Consumer M&A Watch – May 2021 Coverage

By Emily Halstenberg | May 17, 2021

Contract Manufacturing Edition – May 2021

Actionable intelligence for leaders in the Consumer Products and Retail industry

​​​​​​​​​
COVID-19 has had a beneficial effect on the Global Contract Manufacturing Services market overall. On the personal care & diversified industries side, the demand for personal care D2C (e-commerce) brands accelerated during the pandemic due to consumer’s increased consciousness of health, wellness, and sustainability. Contract manufacturers were able to keep up with the high demand and benefited from the continuing industry change. On the food & beverage side, contract manufacturers benefited from a significant increase in demand for consumer-packaged foods – particularly products that are staple and comfort foods, add flavor and variety, or offer convenience.

While 2020 had a decrease in M&A activity in the Global Contract Manufacturing space, 2021 started strong with global strategic buyers and private equity firms looking to capitalize on the ongoing industry trends primarily through expansion: capacity, manufacturing capabilities, geography diversification of customer base, and new customer accounts. 7 Mile Advisors has completed several transactions within the Consumer Products & Services space. These transactions span the major categories of contract manufacturing 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 led 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.
