The consolidation in the private label production industry has largely been initiated and driven by private equity initiatives. Many private label producers are still family businesses and are managed differently from listed companies. In some cases, value can be unlocked by managing a company differently and more on financial parameters. Through a buy-and-build strategy, scale and expertise can be created in the European market. Because private label producers supply on a limited-term contract basis, it is crucial for the acquirer to make an assessment of the quality and sustainability of sales in an acquisition. The future cash flow and return can suddenly change drastically if one or more customers are lost. IPLC can provide important insights through a thorough commercial due diligence. On the one hand by studying contracts, customer files and other relevant documentation. On the other hand through interviews with management and possibly retail customers. As a result, valuable material is obtained to arrive at a final valuation and transaction price of the company or to have a plan of action ready if the transaction is successfully completed. Based on a deep knowledge and experience in the industry, IPLC provides insight and supports IPLC parties involved in merger and acquisition processes.
