Aethlon’s industry reports provide perspective on industry trends and M&A activity in the industries where we specialize: Consumer Products, Technology, Manufacturing, and Transportation & Logistics.
Q1 2019 – Consumer Products Report – The US consumer sentiment index, as reported by the University of Michigan, rose to 98.4 in March, up significantly from 91.2 in January. According to the university, there is now a general feeling across all income groups for positive economic growth the rest of the year.
Assuming this most recent index is an accurate predictor for 2019, we expect M&A activity to maintain its current course, especially since access to capital remains plentiful, and acquirers still have record amounts of dry powder waiting to be put to use.
