PE firms like our ability to take costs out of the operating model for their portfolio companies. Specifically, we work with PE owned assets that carry significant delivery/shipment costs against their P&L. If the investing philosophies of these firms dictate owning an asset on a longer term basis, and top line growth is critical, we offer cost-effective in-store services that has a measurable and positive impact on product sell-through velocity.
Ultimately, we offer cost effectiveness and efficiency optionality that has a direct and positive impact for the future exit.
