Acquisitions & Divestments

Alongside organic growth, acquisitions will continue to be an integral part of our strategy.

Our assessment of potential acquisitions is based on whether the targets are available, fit Henkel’s strategy, and are financially attractive. The focus in the Adhesive Technologies business unit is on expanding technology leadership, whereas in the Beauty Care and Laundry & Home Care business units, we will be striving to strengthen our categories.

We enhanced our global footprint through a number of targeted acquisitions. Detailed information on the transactions can be found in the respective news release, which is available under Capital Market Information.
