“We have advised many leading consumer brands on exit and know how to spot and bring to life the potential of any branded consumer facing businesses.”
The UK consumer and brand sector is constantly changing and reinventing itself in light of the ever demanding consumer. This rate of reinvention has only but accelerated in our increasingly digital world where choice continues to extend and therefore the power of a brand has never been more important.
This continued rise of consumerism coupled with the use of technology and social media has driven the consumer and retail market in recent years.
The use of brands and our obsession with branded products has increased deal volumes and attractiveness of retail brands to both private equity investors and corporate groups and Bishopsgate expect M&A activity to remain at heightened levels for the foreseeable future.
The BCF team is highly experienced in the consumer and branded M&A sector and has recently completed several high profile transactions including the sale of Virgin Experience Days, the private equity acquisition of Bullitt Group and the cross-border sale of leading g-commerce marketplace Fanatical to Fandom Inc.
A big, massive thank you for seeing this one through. Yes you did a really great job. You have been encouraging, thoughtful, articulate, motivational and extremely thorough.
I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone. It’s a very hard thing selling a business and at the end quite emotional. Your constant support I feel was the difference in making this happen.
