Converting unwanted and excess inventory to cash is our core competency, and we have done it with great success for some of the preeminent private equity firms and largest national (and multinational) retailers around the globe. Our team has served healthy, stressed, and deeply distressed clients on five continents and executed transactions valued in excess of $150 billion throughout our history.
Clients engage us at various stages. These range from healthy businesses looking to execute strategic change or rationalize their store base, to stressed or distressed businesses in need of capital. Regardless of circumstance, Hilco can act as principal in any of its engagements, offering immediate cash payments backed by our balance sheet for unwanted inventory. Transparency is, of course, paramount. That’s why we openly share our financial modeling with clients free of charge and structure transactions to include shared upside if we exceed our models.
Retail Store Events
Store sale events are the most effective way to monetize excess and unwanted inventory. Whether executing a divisional wind down, market exit, an in-store clearance event, or closing select stores, the Hilco team takes full operational responsibility. This enables your team to stay focused on the core, go-forward business.
Our team of 200+ field professionals is the most experienced in the industry and consists of former retail specialists and executives. Akin to retail district or regional managers, these individuals manage all functions of a sale event in-store to ensure flawless execution. Working in concert with our field professionals, the Hilco Retail corporate team handles all aspects of financial modeling, marketing, merchandising, interim management, discounting, customer transition, and overall sale strategy.
