Personal Care Products & Services - Coverage Report Q1 2018

Published on: 02/19/2018

For the third consecutive year, merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the Personal Care Products & Services industry surpassed the record level achieved in the previous year. Across the majority of middle market industries, private equity groups (PEG) deployed significant levels of capital and captured a larger share of deals relative to 2016. However, the Personal Care Products & Services industry broke this trend as PEG deal share shrunk from 46.3% in 2016 to 33.6% in 2017. Niche players with unique products and sales platforms experienced consistent strategic buyer demand as large operators opted for inorganic growth strategies rather than internal investment as a means of penetrating new markets and expanding product offerings.
