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.

The report’s key findings include:

Perfect Storm:

Rapid inflation in food commodities, fertiliser, fuel, labour, logistics and shipping are converging with geopolitical chaos, cost of living pressure and rising taxation.

M&A Ramping Up:

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.

Funding Opportunities:

Benign finance market conditions mean that lenders can accommodate most solid growth funding plans for businesses wishing to outgrow inflation and other current headwinds.

Don’t Do Nothing:

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.
