Pet Industry Deal Activity – Q1 2013
M&A Pet Transactions this past quarter have begun to slow, with only 5 announced transactions. Most deals were strategic acquisitions, in which large companies increase their distribution and offerings by purchasing well-known smaller brands within the industry.
During February, the 2013 Global Pet Expo was hosted in Orlando Florida. The show featured 964 exhibitors, 2,686 booths and more than 3,000 new product launches. With 5,327 pet product buyers from around the world in attendance the show broke records across the board. We love the pet industry!
