Industry & Approach

Consumer & Retail

Insight for Consumer-Facing Companies

BlackArch professionals bring significant transaction experience to consumer and retail companies. We track the trends and the challenges that are unique to consumer and retail clients in a dynamic and constantly evolving market.

Consumer and retail companies face constant challenges from new entrants, disruptive technologies and changing ways of acquiring customers and getting products to them. Specialized product and service offerings can build loyalty and profit margins at the potential cost of high customer and product concentration; at the same time, companies that pursue a mass retail strategy face severe price and margin pressures.

Representation across the industry

Our consumer transaction experience includes branded and private label products; personal care/health and wellness products; and sports and leisure products. On the retail side, our professionals have represented companies in the home furnishings and bedding; health and fitness; clothing and apparel; restaurant; e-commerce; and franchise spaces.

Our bankers have represented private and family-owned businesses, companies backed by financial sponsors and divisions owned by larger corporations. We advise on a wide array of solutions, from managing pre-emptive or targeted processes to broad sellside engagements.
