OTC DEAL TRENDS 2018

31 December 2018 - Deborah Wilkes

 

The OTCToolbox annual review of mergers and acquisitions activity is essential reading for anyone with an interest in business development in the OTC/consumer healthcare industry.

OTC Deal Trends 2018 provides a comprehensive guide to deals and trends in the global industry.

Mega deals transformed the global industry in 2018 as several pharmaceutical companies divested consumer healthcare/OTC businesses.

Other significant trends included big deals involving vitamins, minerals and supplements (VMS) assets; private-equity firms buying and selling assets; and interest in digital technology and e-commerce assets. There were also many companies buying and building.

However, some acquirers are struggling in the wake of older mega deals.
