Juvenile Products - Coverage Report Q3 2017

Q3 2017

Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the Juvenile Products industry remained healthy through year-to-date (YTD) 2017 despite a moderate decline in deal volume.  Activity is still feeling the repercussions of the US election as deal makers are, until only recently, gaining a clearer picture of federal policies.  Acquisitions and inorganic growth strategies that were put on hold are now being restarted, resulting in an uptick in processes that will be completed in late-2017/early-2018.  Favorable market dynamics such as cheap debt financing, record amounts of available investment capital (dry powder) and increased foreign buyer interest have also jumpstarted M&A activity within the overall middle market and Juvenile Products industry.
