Bunzl eyes more mergers and acquisitions

Distribution group claims boost in trading is down to continued acquisitions

23 June 2010

Distribution group Bunzl is looking to secure more mergers and acquisitions in the upcoming months.

The firm announced that trading has been boosted by the five acquisitions, worth £85 million in annual revenues, it had already made this year

Chief executive Michael Roney claimed Bunzl would continue its strategy for expansion throughout 2010.

He said in a statement: "The company expects that the current environment will lead to more transactions being finalised during the remainder of the year."

Bunzl recorded strong revenue growth in the US as existing customers did more business with the firm.

Favourable foreign exchange rates and cost-cutting measures also helped boost profit levels.

In the UK and Ireland, year-on-year sales dropped due to the difficult economic conditions, although profits did rise due to improved operating margins.
