The recent increases in consumer spending as well as the development in the last decade of retail technology such as the e-commerce and mobile and contactless payments, the consumer business sector has observed a constant growth.

The consumer business sector is a varied and dynamic market and includes:

  • Retail
  • Consumer services
  • Food & Drink

The M&A activity of the consumer business sector continues to grow with a strong appetite from strategic acquirers and investors for companies with an e-commerce angle.

Our corporate finance team has recently advised on significant deals in the consumer business sector in the Thames Valley and the South of England and benefits from an in-depth knowledge of the sector.

What our clients say

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 47 year journey of starting, building and developing the Friarwood brand, but the time is now right to pass on the baton. I am very grateful for the guidance, skill and leadership HMT has brought to this transaction which has enabled us to achieve the families’ objectives in a timely manner.

Isabelle Bowen, Co-founder of Friarwood

HMT looked at various options for developing the business and how this could be financed. The team very quickly demonstrated an excellent understanding of what is a complex industry, and using their expertise they were able to facilitate a very positive and satisfactory solution for the Company and its shareholders.
