FOR THE MIDDLE MARKET
Our eCommerce investment banking team provides advisory toward liquidity for middle-market digital commerce companies worldwide. Our advisory expertise ranges across niche and specialty industries within eCommerce, with a focused approach on the end-goal. For most growing eCommerce businesses, capital formation for organic and inorganic (acquisition) growth can be a necessary need prior to the final sale to a more strategic or financial company buyer. We assist in preparing a company–regardless of where they currently sit in the corporate growth and harvest lifecycle–across the value chain from growth capital to eventual exit by merger or acquisition.
Regardless of the specific market, merger and acquisition planning can require a holistic view of long-term objectives. No complete long-term strategic plan toward M&A is linear or devoid of growing pains. Our team of capital advisory experts assist across the value chain. Companies interested in strategic buy and sell-side M&A for their digital retail business are invited to get in touch with one of our experts.

Today’s consumer brand is greatly influenced by a strong affinity toward digital connectivity. In 2015 eCommerce sales increased nearly 15% to over $340B in 2015 according to the U.S. Census Bureau reports. While eCommerce still only accounts for less than 10% of overall commerce, it continues to massively outpace the growth of traditional brick-and-mortar sales.
According to Google, mobile conversion rates have grown by as much as 30% year-over-year. According to a Deloitte survey, 33% of shoppers conclude they spend more when they use tablets and smartphones as part of their overall shopping processes. Mobile is likely to have some of the biggest and most transforming impact on the traditional retail landscape.
U.S. Mobile eCommerce
Digital and mobile-influenced consumer product sales continue to grow in excess of the general market. In a survey of more than 3,000 consumers Deloitte found strong correlations between in-store purchases and the interactions consumers had on digital devices, including desktop, tablet, smartphones and other wearable devices. Year-over-year, the growth of digitally-influenced on and offline purchases has seen growth numbers as high as 25% with the strongest data produced from the automotive, entertainment and baby segments. However, growth was positive across the board for eCommerce-driven sales including electronics, home furnishings, apparel, health/wellness, commercial supplies and food/beverage.
