United Kingdom Food & Drink Q4 2018

United Kingdom Food & Drink Q4 2018

Key View:

A merger between Asda and Sainsbury's will potentially be a game changer for the grocery industry, should it beapproved by the regulator, with a decision not expected until the end of 2019. The move comes on the back of a need forconsolidation in the UK grocery sector amid mounting cost and competitive pressures, and we believe that the tie-up will put bothchains in a stronger position to deal with the threat posed by the likes of Amazon, Aldi and Lidl. With spending on food & drinkforecast to remain relatively muted over the next five years, with higher inflation playing a role in this growth, more grocers may lookto M&A activity as a means to capture growth in a difficult operating environment.
