Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Axial Radar!
Earlier this week, Axial published its 2020 Consumer Industry Report, profiling 50 of the top Consumer M&A participants in the lower middle market. With Consumer top of mind, today on Radar we’ll take a peek under the hood at the engine running the global consumer machine.
Supply chains – the complex logistical networks responsible for everything from raw material procurement through order fulfillment – are extremely prone to inefficiencies as supply and demand fluctuates. The inability to properly forecast demand for a product can tie up significant amounts of capital otherwise available for use in different areas of a business. 2020, the year of unpredictability, is putting these supply chains to the ultimate stress test. Head down to this week’s Industry Trends section of Radar to read more about how supply chains are adapting to consumer demand patterns during Covid and what it means for investors and their portfolio companies in the space.
Our featured buy-side members this week include a leading revenue-based financing firm, an operationally focused private equity firm, and a thematic investor targeting middle-market companies. On the sell-side we’ll introduce you to a boutique investment banking firm and a Michigan-based investment bank.
