Lincoln International Closed / Announced Six Transactions in Q4 2020 in the Pet and Animal Health Sectors
The pet and animal sectors continue to demonstrate resilience across the economic cycle; mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity has proven investor appetite remains strong, even in the face of uncertainty as a result of the pandemic. Numerous attractive tailwinds, such as increased pet adoptions during lockdown and the humanization of pets, have kept investors watching the industry closely for opportunities.
Lincoln International closed six pet transactions in Q4 2020 across our Global Consumer and Healthcare Groups, including cross-border sales to both public and private equity clients. Acting as both buy-side and sell-side advisors for a variety of clients, from branded pet food to treats and consumables to veterinary services, notable deals include:
Lincoln International is pleased to announce that it has advised VMG Partners on the sale of Solid Gold to Health and Happiness Group (SEHK:1112)
Lincoln International advised Spectrum Brands on its acquisition of Armitage Pet Care, a portfolio company of Rutland
Lincoln advised investment funds managed by Morgan Stanley Capital Partners (MSCP) and worked closely with the Manna Pro Products team throughout the sale process
Lincoln’s Global Healthcare Group continued their strong momentum in animal health. The Group has completed 50+ animal health transactions across all verticals, including hospitals, diagnostics, pharmaceuticals and technology.
As 2021 unfolds, Lincoln International expects M&A activity in this space to continue to be high. Connect with a senior member of the Lincoln International team to learn more.
