Shaw & Co launches its latest ‘Shaw Report’ which takes an interim view of M&A activity the Food & Drink industry.
Shaw & Co, the specialist corporate finance advisory firm, has launched an interim analysis of the Food & Drink industry.
The report, which features a summary of M&A deals that have been completed since the launch of Shaw & Co’s annual Food & Drink report last September, provides SMEs with valuable insight regarding their latest acquisition prospects.
Rapid inflation in food commodities, fertiliser, fuel, labour, logistics and shipping are converging with geopolitical chaos, cost of living pressure and rising taxation.
Relatively healthy M&A activity and interest in the industry could provide exit opportunities for any business owner looking to bank the value they have created thus far.
Benign finance market conditions mean that lenders can accommodate most solid growth funding plans for businesses wishing to outgrow inflation and other current headwinds.
F&D companies have a simple choice: to exit or to persevere and go for growth. Doing nothing is not an option as standing still is simply the equivalent of going backwards in this fast-paced sector.
A full copy of the report is available for free download here.
