P&G was founded by William Procter and James Gamble in 1837. A special feature is that the marketing is limited to the brand of the products therefore the name of Procter and Gamble mostly remains in the background. P&G is mainly known for cleaning agents, personal care, beverages and food.
Since 1990, P&G has engaged in a number of M&A deals: 93 transactions with a value of USD 80.1 bil. (for number and value per year, see figure below).
