Food & Beverage transactions continue to close during unprecedented times

During times of market volatility, investors gravitate to the stable, recession-resistant qualities of the Food & Beverage sector. In the current environment, with in-home consumption up meaningfully, Food & Beverage companies selling through retail and e-commerce channels are experiencing strong demand. Meanwhile, amidst shelter-in-place guidelines across many states, out-of-home consumption has been negatively impacted and companies selling through foodservice channels have seen a sharp decline in sales. Lincoln’s Food & Beverage sector experts and capital advisory specialists remain at the forefront of these market dynamics, actively sharing their perspectives while executing transactions for sellers, buyers, investors and lenders.
