Business Description

Tremendous value-creation potential - large and growing ecomm presence

80+ year old stable cash-flowing American apparel brand with healthy margins in women's niche end-markets. Products well-known in industry for superior quality.

Brand currently owned by contract sewing company which manufactures products in-house. Owner willing to negotiate long-term production contract at a discount if buyer wishes to not to move production, or buyer may desire to relocate manufacturing, potentially overseas, which could save a tremendous amount of money (this would result in no job loss, as current owner would simply re-allocate sewers to other projects). Products are not fashion-centric, so design considerations not relevant here unless buyer wants to expand.

Sales are both wholesale (Brand sold through many leading retailers in this niche) and direct retail (network of ecommerce channels), with direct retail growing rapidly. No significant customer concentration. Extensive, automated ecommerce fulfillment network has been constructed and will transfer with sale. Fully-relocatable; an aggressive and clever buyer could run this business from home with as few as 1 additional employee to manage customer service.

Financials are pro-forma for Brand carved out of owner's existing business. Note that the cash flow figures do not include back-office staff or rent (both of which can be virtually eliminated). Variety of different deal structures available - physical facility is also available for purchase via Sale-Leaseback.

Opportunity is perfect for anyone with existing manufacturing or distribution facilities, anyone with ecommerce expertise, anyone with Asian sourcing background, OR anyone seeking stable cash flow and willing to learn.
