After taking a breather in the summer, the beauty care M&A markets witnessed 20 deals in the fourth quarter, pushing the total number of M&A transactions in 2014 over 2013 levels by 1.6%. Based on attractive market dynamics and our own new mandate pipeline, Intrepid is anticipating a strong year for beauty care M&A in 2015. Q4’14 beauty care M&A highlights include: Deal volume in Q4’14 rose over 200% from Q3'14 and 33% from Q4'13. Estée Lauder delivered on its promise to put acquisitions back on the priority list by announcing four transactions. L'Oréal finished its aggressive year of M&A with two more acquisitions in Q4’14, bringing its total to nine for 2014. Other familiar names re-emerged on the acquisition front, including Coty, LG Household & Healthcare, LVMH, Alliance Boots and Unilever. Strategic buyers dominated the M&A landscape with only two material private equity transactions.
