Consumer trends and changing behaviour are having an unprecedented impact on both retail and consumer goods. New and shifting channels and emerging business models put pressure on large established players but also generate new opportunities. Driven by the need to change or to seize these opportunities, PE and corporates are increasingly stepping up their M&A activities to seize opportunities.
PwC Deals assists Retail & Consumer companies during the deals process in multiple ways; from defining and validating M&A strategy and finding relevant targets, to due diligence on all relevant aspects of a deal (commercial, financial, operational, IT, pensions and tax). Post-deal we help Retail & Consumer companies with post-merger integration and carve-out issues. Our restructuring business can help retail and consumer goods companies that are under financial pressure.
"Changing consumer markets are putting traditional Retail & Consumer companies increasingly under pressure. Difficult to achieve topline growth and declining cost-cutting potential is moving PE and corporates towards M&A"
