SDR’s Quarterly Reports Contain Valuable Information and Data for Business Owners and CEOs
2017 is off to an intriguing start, with numerous industries experiencing shifts in sentiment and stock performance as a result of the new presidential administration, and others struggling to adapt to colossal changes in consumer demands and digital trends.
Some industries, such as Manufacturing and Oil & Gas, or industry segments, like the Industrial Services segment of Business Services, have experienced a very real “Trump Bump,” at least in terms of stock performances and overall sentiment. Meanwhile, the Pet Industry played host to one of the biggest pet transactions in years when Mars Inc. purchased VCA Inc. for about $8.8 billion in early Q1. The fast rise of digitally native brands (like Blue Apron and Graze) is transforming the Food & Beverage industry and many other consumer spaces, but at the same time, Distribution and Logistics providers must meet this demand. Many of these companies are turning to technology to drive efficiency and decrease costs across the supply chain.
Our Q1 2017 quarterly reports explore these developments, and many more. Each report also includes a breakdown of industry-specific M&A activity by industry segment, geographic location and transaction type (strategic vs. financial acquirer). Click the buttons below to read each Q1 2017 report.
