Pet & Animal Care

Published on: 09/01/2012

Merger and acquisition activity in the pet & animal care industry remained level in the first half of 2012 compared to the same period last year, as the economy continued its modest recovery and M&A activity stabilized across the general economy. Activity in 2010 and 2011 has noticeably increased from levels in prior years. This increase reflects post-recession market improvements, including renewed interest among both corporate and private equity buyers, as well as better financing conditions for M&A transactions.
