Nutter to Host Food and Beverage Lunch on Strategic InvestmentsPrint PDF
The offer of capital and support from a multinational billion dollar strategic partner can be exciting for growth stage food and beverage brands. Such strategic partners can offer financial capital, reduced costs for, or preferential access to, key ingredients, research and development expertise, market credibility, marketing support, increased distribution, and, potentially, an offer to acquire the brand.
For all of these benefits, there are significant risks for the brand. Such deals may come with obligations of exclusivity, purchase options for the strategic partner to acquire the company, or reductions in the overall salability or the ultimate purchase price of the company at exit. Additionally, the deals are often much more expensive and take longer to transact. Join us for a discussion of the ins and outs of these complex strategic transactions.
