Following the Money: A Case Study in Chinese Investment in the U.S. Nutrition Industry
For the supplement industry, the relationship between China and the United States, is built on a back-and-forth trade dynamic that used to be ingredients-out/product-in. Now it’s the money coming out of China and into global investment deals that could lead to the biggest changes. Chinese customers may be hungry for U.S. branded supplements, but Chinese investors are equally hungry for U.S. supplement companies. William Hood, managing director at Houlihan Lokey will talk about what that means for the supplement industry now and how companies looking to be acquired can best position themselves.
