Personal Care Products & Services - Executive Summary Q2 2018

Q2 2018

The robust economy has driven industry growth, as consumers with high disposable income levels have more to spend on discretionary products and services.  Currently, the median public company EBITDA multiple in this industry is at 20.0x compared to 15.7x in May 2017.  Proctor & Gamble (NYSE:P&G) has acquired New Zealand-based Snowberry, a skincare company that specializes in natural ingredients (February, valuation undisclosed).  The deal builds on P&G’s acquisition of natural deodorant brand Native (November 2017, $100.0 million) and is reflective of current market trends towards natural and organic products.
