Retail

Retailers today confront an extremely challenging environment – economic uncertainty causing significantly reduced consumer demand, margin pressure, increased consumer expectations and shifting trends, fierce competition, consolidation, e-tailer inroads, and growing supply source complexities.  At the end of last year, almost 15% of all retailers covered by Moody’s were rated Caa or Ca, the highest proportion in nearly a decade.

To stay competitive in this routinely changing climate, retailers must continuously address decisions regarding:

  • Product range and price points – providing value to the consumer
  • Merchandising
  • Procurement
  • Inventory management
  • Overhead
  • Real estate

Our professionals understand retail first hand – we have operated and consulted for a wide variety of retail formats, and advised both debtors and creditors in retail bankruptcy situations.  We authored the popular article, published in ABL Advisor, “How to Keep a Retailer Out of Bankruptcy.”

Getzler Henrich’s quantitative, analytical approach focuses on operational efficiency and effectiveness, evaluating rationalization or expansion opportunities, product margin and contribution analysis, and distribution issues.  We provide alternative solutions to restore asset value.
