Discover Q2 2017 M&A Activity and Trends Across 10 Industries

SDR’s Quarterly Reports Contain Valuable Information and Data for Business Owners and CEOs

In Q2 2017, there were many pivotal M&A developments in multiple industries that SDR works in, such as Amazon’s announced purchase of Whole Foods in the Food and Beverage Industry, PetSmart’s acquisition of Chewy.com in the Pet Industry and mass CRO consolidation in the Healthcare Industry.

One common thread that can be found in the consumer space is the movement of brick and mortar retail into the online space; however, the more interesting aspect may be the varied responses to the trend. This shift is forcing many businesses to find creative approaches to address these competitive changes.

In the Tech Industry, investments in Machine Learning have been coming in at a ferocious pace in recent quarters, but Q2 2017 witnessed a 19% drop in investments. It seems investors are now being more discerning as to which companies are creating true value. Meanwhile, an industry that is finding itself square in the middle of both the Healthcare and Technology industry is Distribution & Logistics, with sophisticated, tech-driven cold chain logistics playing a larger role in pharmaceutical distribution.

Our Q2 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).
