PwC Q3 2012 Retail Sector Merger & Acquisition Report

PwC has released its Q3 2012 Retail Sector Merger & Acquisition Report.

At a glance:

Deal activity in the R&C sector declined from recent highs in Q2; however, the overall trend remains positive to the prior year. Consumer sentiment is improving, reflecting slight progress

Outbound cross border activity has been a significant factor this year as US companies continue to seek
an increased footprint or access to higher growth markets.
