Packaging Newsletter, March 2017

Despite the challenging headwinds posed by the UK’s referendum on EU membership in June and the US election in November, UK Packaging M&A activity remained robust in 2016 with a total of 33 deals, almost equalling the recent high water mark of 34 deals set two years ago. This newsletter is a periodic review of the M&A activity and trends affecting the UK Packaging Sector.

In this edition, we:

  • Analyse UK deal volumes over the last five years, versus where we are today;
  • Provide an insight into current valuation trends in the market;
  • Examine what creates value for sellers in the packaging sector;
  • Assess the impact of Brexit on deal volume;
  • Identify some of the most active international acquirers; and
  • Consider the M&A outlook for the remainder of 2017.
