Once the domain of strategic buyers of giant packaged goods companies, increasingly the consumer and retail private equity sectors are being bulls-eyed by mainstream middle-market private equity investors.
One key reason for this trend, obviously, is the availability of leverage financing. Another is the sheer size of the consumer markets -- nearly 75% of the U.S. GDP! But also important are the profound changes in the public financial markets, international sourcing, consumer demographics, technology, fashion, and consumption trends that are transforming how and where Americans shop.
As a result, investors who have historically avoided cyclical businesses are shedding their inhibitions and are now in record numbers funding consumer and retail companies with their reliable--and bankable--cash flows.
So how can you find solid, well-positioned companies in growth niches? How can you best take advantage of strong franchises? How do you cope with seasonality and consumer fickleness?
When is it practical for a brand to be a fundable asset? Where can you anticipate minefields?
These and other topics will be covered by 20 experts in an upcoming MasterClass chaired by David Yarnell, managing general partner and co-founder of BEV Capital, a firm that focuses on the consumer sector. Yarnell’s background includes operating roles at Federated Department Stores, General Mills, and Mexx USA, as well as consulting with McKinsey in its consumer and retail practice.
Attend this special MasterClass, and you’ll learn from impressive faculty who work directly on private equity transactions in the consumer and retail space. This includes private equity investors, lenders, attorneys, consultants, turnaround specialists, and portfolio company CEOs. They will share lessons learned from their own experiences, plus let you know what to expect from this dynamic market going forward.
The program is being produced by The Capital Roundtable, the country's only information needs of the middle-market and smaller-market private-equity communities. It is being sponsored by the investment bank Goldsmith Agio Helms & Co., market leaders in working with with consumer and retail companies, and their investors.
If you are a private equity or hedge fund manager, or if you are a senior or junior lender serving private equity sponsors, or if you provide professional services to the private equity community, this essential program is designed for you. It will provide you information you need to make successful investment decisions, as well as numerous opportunities to build new valuable relationships with a host of expert speakers and inquisitive attendees.
And if you wish, the day before, you can attend a special three-hour workshop called “Fundamentals of Buying Out -- & Buying Into -- Consumer & Retail Companies,” in which seven specialists will review key aspects of investing in the industry, e.g., due-diligence, structuring, recruiting, distribution, and intellectual property.
From this MasterClass, you'll glean answers to these important questions --
