Rockworth’s retail and consumer corporate finance team focus upon transactional and consultancy work for consumer-facing businesses in the consumer products, retail and leisure sectors. Brands are obviously important in this sector (please see our piece on brand valuation) and the value of such brands can be highly dependent on the different acquirers or investors that may be looking at it. If the incoming partner can see the potential for ‘roll-out’ or expansion through their own distribution network the related value will clearly reflect the rate of growth and predictability of these future earning streams. Our experience includes working with food brands (Dewhurst), drinks brands (Rubicon), luxury brands (Morgan) as well as service providers to the sector such as design agencies (Core), digital agencies (Jacaranda). We are currently working with other brand-led businesses – both brand owners themselves and retailers.
