Capstone’s December 2020 Home Goods M&A Update reports that following substantial headwinds during the onset of the pandemic, the Home Goods industry has demonstrated a remarkable recovery driven by consumers’ heightened focus on home furnishings and improvement amid increased time at home. Quarantine restrictions and work from home trends are fueling home goods spending and investors are showing increased attraction to the sector. Capstone expects merger and acquisition (M&A) activity to accelerate for quality home goods companies with established online channels, strong brand recognition, and differentiated business models.
The report contents include:
- Public company performance has rebounded following early declines as consumers have placed a heightened focus on home improvement
- Strong demand for mattress and bedding providers that have invested in online channels and brand development
- M&A activity accelerates in Q4 as strategic buyers remain active and private equity buyers have reengaged in acquisitions to build on their sector portfolios
