Retailers Adapt And Evolve In The Face Of A Changing Economy And Consumer Behaviors – Yahoo Finance

15 Jul

Private Equity Selling to Other Private Equity Firms: The market may begin seeing some sales of private equity-owned companies to other PE firms as they look to cash out for their investors. This is a lingering result of the recession, when many PE firms bought companies and were forced to hold onto them a little longer than they would have otherwise liked to. Potential Increase in Activist Investing in Public Retailers: We have seen private equity and other funds take material positions in public held retailers that may have lost their way, which may lead to imposing their influence and/or taking these entities private. Post-Great Recession Deal Structures Emphasize Liquidity: Companies want to make sure that they have a lot of availability on their revolving credit facilities so they do not get caught in a liquidity crunch. Many companies found themselves in trouble when the recession hit, and were holding too much debt and had limited liquidity. Nonetheless, leverage multiples are creeping up on better retailers.

How These Brothers Took Over a Taco Franchise – Yahoo Finance

Before becoming a franchise owner, I was a financial analyst for the Boeing and then worked with my family in the forest industry. After our father passed away, my brother Dan and I developed an industrial park and worked on that project for two years before venturing out to find a business to invest in. Along the way, we also became involved in real estate projects as well as private equity investing and lending. Why did you choose this particular franchise? As I previously mentioned, when Chronic Tacos expanded into Canada, we helped finance the Vancouver location. Once we learned more about the concept, we saw an opportunity to become an even bigger part of the brand. As we compared this venture to other investment opportunities, we felt this opportunity played up our strengths the best.

Brewers midseason report: Happy to be in first – Yahoo Sports

Can Roenicke find a lineup that works on a day-in and day-out basis? Does the bullpen have enough left in the tank for the rigors of the stretch run after throwing 272 innings in the first half? That number is actually fifth-lowest total in the NL but when broken down by pitcher, there is cause for concern: lefty Will Smith is tied for the league lead with 49 appearances; he was practically unhittable for much of the season but allowed nine runs over two innings (40.50) in three games before throwing a scoreless inning July 13. Closer Francisco Rodriguez has 27 saves in 30 chances but has appeared in 45 games. Getting to those two arms has also been a bit of a problem as right-handers Jim Henderson and Tyler Thornburg have been sidelined with injuries and Brandon Kintzler has been nothing close to his 2013 form.
