Pacifica Advisors, a leading mergers and acquisitions (M&A) advisory firm specializing in businesses with an EBITDA ranging from $1.5 to $25 million throughout the Western US and Mexico, is proud to announce its inclusion in Axial's prestigious 2023 publication of the Top 50 Lower Middle Market Consumer Investors and M&A Advisors.
In recent years, the consumer sector has encountered numerous challenges, including a decline in discretionary spending, interest rate increases, and the complexities of forecasting forward demand. Axial's forthcoming research report delves into these issues while providing valuable insights into the 6-12 month M&A market outlook from the perspective of consumer-focused dealmakers on the Axial platform.
This recognition spotlights the 50 Axial members, including Pacifica Advisors, who have exhibited unwavering resilience in the face of industry setbacks and maintained high productivity levels. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to each of these accomplished firms.
The Top 50 list was meticulously curated using a weighted formula that considered four key metrics:
The number of consumer deals brought to market via Axial (sell-side).
The level of interest generated by these deals within Axial's buy-side member base.
The creation of specific consumer-focused investment mandates on the platform (buy-side).
The progression of consumer deals through various stages of the deal funnel, from signed NDAs to successfully consummated transactions (buy-side & sell-side).
In the world of M&A, reputation and credibility are of paramount importance. Axial has recently introduced the Axial Passport, a tool that allows members of the M&A ecosystem to efficiently assess the experience and credibility of potential transaction counterparts. As showcased above, Pacifica Advisors and other Consumer Top 50 members have their Passports readily available, providing a snapshot of their M&A credentials and key performance metrics, which update daily.
