Retail and consumer M&A activity is chiefly driven by companies spinning off businesses, private equity investment in the retail portion of the sector, and expansion into e-commerce.
Grocery, drug, discount, and mass retailer deal volume and value are seeing better than average growth. Deal volume and value has more than doubled over the past year, with the volume increase driven by middle market businesses. Private equity plays a crucial role in the clothing, footwear, accessories, and food service sub-sectors, accounting for just under half of all transaction volume.
