Juvenile Products & Toys Sector Remains a Seller’s Market  

Capstone Partners released its February 2022 Juvenile Products & Toys Sector Update, reporting that pandemic purchasing habits by households have supercharged growth in the Juvenile Products & Toys sector, and the elevated spending levels across Toys, Games, and Durable Goods categories are expected to continue in 2022.

Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the sector approached record levels in 2021 with 36 transactions announced or completed, approximately a 57% increase year-over-year (YOY). The prospects of a capital gains tax increase fueled a significant portion of initial transaction inventory in the first half of the year as business owners sought to maximize take home earnings.

Also included in this report:

  • How leading public companies in the sector have addressed inflationary challenges and supply chain headwinds.
  • Which sector subsegments experienced the highest M&A demand in 2021.
  • What target company traits are drawing heightened interest from buyers and investors.

Capstone Partners has developed a full suite of corporate finance solutions, including M&A advisory, debt advisory, financial advisory, and equity capital financing to help privately owned businesses and private equity firms through each stage of the company’s lifecycle, ranging from growth to an ultimate exit transaction.
