Global Consumer Group at Lincoln International Accomplishes Record Year in 2021
Evolving Consumer Preferences Continue to Drive Investor Interest in the Sector
Consumer sector transaction activity continues to be robust, and Lincoln’s Global Consumer Group is commanding a significant share of the market. In 2021, Lincoln’s Consumer deal volume was up 35% with 56 closed transactions.
In 2022, strong deal activity is expected to continue, driven by high demand for investments in the sector and rapidly growing profitability of consumer companies. Strategic buyers are very active and are investing in strategies that drive incremental growth and synergies. Financial investors continue to find the consumer sector attractive and are allocating larger portions of their funds to these investments.
With over 400 successfully closed consumer transactions, Lincoln is one of the most active in the category. In addition, Lincoln consistently drives exceptional outcomes with premium values in transactions in the food and beverage, apparel, automotive aftermarket, pet, personal care, restaurant, retail, home products and e-commerce verticals. Key to this success is Lincoln’s global coverage, with dedicated consumer teams across the Americas, Europe and Asia.
Lincoln International's global Consumer Group celebrates a record 2021.
