Growing performance gap in the UK Cash & Carry Wholesalers industry

There is a real mixed bag of company performance in the UK Cash & Carry Wholesalers industry at the moment. New research from market analysts Plimsoll indicates that with 84 companies in trouble, 209 others powering ahead and a further 86 set to be taken over, the market has never been more fragmented.  

David Pattison, author of the new Plimsoll Analysis – Cash & Carry Wholesalers explains, “Having rated 84 struggling companies as Danger and given 209 others a Strong rating, I am surprised at the gulf in performance in the market. Despite all other factors, success still comes down to how well a company is run”

When pressed on what the consequences of this polarisation in the market will be, Pattison’s response is emphatic, “Acquisitions. The market, in the current economic climate cannot support this many companies. There has to be further, more radical consolidation in the market. Strong companies will be buying up distressed competitors in the next 12 months”.
