Recreational Products

Published on: 08/10/2012

M&A activity in the recreational products industry followed a similar pattern to many other industries, with the number of transactions accelerating through 2007, then declining during the economic recession of 2008 and 2009. Activity rebounded substantially in 2010, and the industry remained increasingly active in 2011 and year‐to‐ date 2012. There currently is elevated interest from both strategic and financial buyers in the industry. Strategic investors are seeking to boost market share and expand product offerings, while private equity sponsors are prepared to deploy cash in search of new platform or add‐on acquisitions.
