UK Food & Beverage Sector: Growth predicted for 2014

Oghma Partners LLP is pleased to announce the release of the 2013 M&A Review & 2014 Outlook of the UK Food & Beverage Sector.

 

The report highlights several of the key transactions that took place in the Food & Beverage sector in 2013, most notably the sale of Lucozade and Ribena to Suntory.  Interest in the Beverage industry as a whole was high, with deals in this sector accounting for 17% of all activity in the year and half of the top 10 deals from 2013.

 

The total number of M&A deals in 2013 fell by 13%. However the report indicates that interest in the UK food and drink industry is expected to rise in 2014 due to several factors, including higher valuations and the potential for rising capital gains tax.
