The information presented in this dataset is an analysis of deals in the Consumer Markets industry where the target company, the target ultimate parent company, the acquiring company, or the acquiring ultimate parent company was located in the Unites States of America. Deal information was sourced from Thomson Reuters and includes deals for which targets have a target mid industry code that falls into one of the following mid industry groups: Apparel Retailing, Automotive Retailing, Computers & Electronics Retailing, Discount and Department Store Retailing, Food and Beverage Retailing, Food and Beverage, Home Furnishings, Home Improvement Retailing, Household & Personal Products, Internet and Catalog Retailing, Other Consumer Products, Other Consumer Staples, Other Retailing, Textiles & Apparel, and Tobacco. Certain djustments have been made to the information to exclude transactions which are not specific to the Consumer Markets sector or incorporate relevant transactions that were omitted from the indicated mid industry codes.
This analysis includes all individual mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures for disclosed or undisclosed values, leveraged buyouts, privatizations, minority stake purchases, and acquisitions of remaining interest announced between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2017, with a deal status of completed, partially completed, pending, pending regulatory, unconditional (i.e. initial conditions set forth by the buyer have been met but deal has not been withdrawn and excludes all rumors and seeking buyers). Additionally, transactions that are spin-offs through distribution to existing shareholders are included. Percentages and values are rounded to the nearest whole number which may result in minor differences when summing totals.
