Our team of professionals will go beyond valuing physical inventory to include your business intangibles, such as customer lists, brand names, trademarks, domain names, and any patented technology. We’ll factor in customer demand by looking at sales figures for comparable stores, as well as discounting levels and any changes in the store base (openings or closings).
Key indicators for success in the footwear industry include establishment of brand names, economies of scale, and the ability to alter products to fit changing tastes and market conditions. The industry comprises men’s, women’s, and children’s footwear, including dress shoes, boots, sandals, pumps, flats, athletic shoes, and more.
The global footwear market is expected to garner more than $371 billion by 2020, for a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5%. However, the U.S. footwear sector has experienced varying results. Athletic footwear has benefited from the athleisure trend; however, the industry has been impacted by store closures in the sporting-goods sector, as well as tough competition from Amazon and other e-commerce retailers.
