RSM US B2B and B2C Spotlights: Value spikes among lower volume
December 09, 2015
Fresh off its rebranding, RSM US has released the first set of its Q4 Industry Spotlights. Powered by data from the PitchBook Platform, the reports address the current M&A, private equity and IPO trends unfolding across the B2B and B2C sectors.
The space continues to move through a transitional period. Top-line growth remains tepid, and while strategic buyers are certainly looking for synergistic and efficient combinations, PE buyers are shying away in many cases due to persistently lofty valuations.
The B2C deal landscape remains relatively unchanged on a QoQ basis. Businesses continue to adjust to changing consumer spending habits, and as technology becomes a significant necessity to support consumers, companies are faced with related capital expenditures that in turn hurt profitability.
