The deal flow for mergers and acquisitions this year in the beauty sector will be the same as the last two years, but 2014 could see more activity as strategic buyers are likely to become more acquisitive.
That’s the prediction of Steve Davis, managing director at Intrepid Investment Bankers LLC. Davis spearheaded the firm’s recently published Beauty Care M&A Report. He also has served as a senior advisor on several deals in the beauty space: PureOlogy Research to L’Oréal SA; Alterna to TSG Consumer Partners and Markham Prestige Group; Joico Laboratories to Zotos International, a subsidiary of Shiseido, and the recapitalization of Salon Grafix with CID Capital and management.
