Private Equity

The Hale Group offers an array of services to firms looking to acquire a new company or evaluate a holding in an existing portfolio.  We assist investors with the due diligence required to identify, evaluate and implement the right growth vehicle(s) for their portfolio. The value we bring to this process is twofold:  our research and analysis capabilities as well as our expertise in strategic development.

The Hale Group’s market research capabilities include large-scale quantitative and qualitative research. Our internal process ensures that we quickly establish the right research strategies and perform an analysis that renders fact-based results. We act quickly and efficiently recognizing that time is of the essence in private equity transactions. We deliver insights, not just data, within a matter of weeks not months.

We have an established track record of providing consumer/customer insights and strategic recommendations. Our main objective is to provide accurate, timely and meaningful information that can inform our client’s decision-making process.

    Back in 2010, The Hale Group published Foodservice 2020 forecasting the future operating environment and this white paper is still relevant – the market has developed and evolved as forecasted. We thought it was time to look at the next planning horizon and so, our newest white paper Foodservice 2025 does that.

    In September 2017, The Hale Group presented Foodservice 2025 at a roundtable event in Dallas. This invitation-only event was sponsored by The Core Group and gathered fifty foodservice industry leaders to vet Foodservice 2025 and engage in a thoughtful, productive discussion about the future foodservice operating environment of 2025.

    Bob Ludwig recently gave a speech to a group of investors on the implications of the emergence of Big Data in Agriculture. See the slides from his speech

    The Hale Group, working with International Foodservice Manufacturers Association (IFMA) Strategic Issues Series, developed a White Paper: GPOs in Foodservice - Landscape & Growth Opportunities to help our clients navigate this growing market trend.
