Pet & Animal Care

Published on: 03/07/2013

Merger and acquisition activity in the pet and animal care industry remained strong in 2012 with 37 announced transactions involving U.S. targets. This activity level is consistent with the 37 and 39 announcements in 2011 and 2010, respectively. The high level of M&A activity is due to strong fundamentals in the overall M&A market as well as continued interest by both strategic buyers and private equity firms in the pet and animal care sector. We expect these market drivers to continue, which should make 2013 another good year for M&A in the pet & animal care sector.
