Dresner Partners to Assist GSP in Identifying and Pursuing Strategic Acquisition Opportunities

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Apr 9, 2014) - GSP™, a leading provider of in-store retail branding and marketing services, has retained Dresner Partners as its investment banker to assist the company in identifying and pursuing strategic acquisition opportunities. GSP uses its proprietary industry leading software system, POPManager®, to deliver cost-effective, site-specific and award-winning graphics and related services to its clients. GSP's clients include over 50 multi-site operators with more than 25,000 retail locations throughout North America. The company is headquartered in Clearwater, Fla.

GSP's acquisition program supports its strategy to expand capacity for its growing customer base and to extend its portfolio to complementary products and markets. GSP's growth plans include the acquisition of one or more retail marketing services businesses that offer point-of-purchase (POP) programs, retail fixtures and displays, digital signage, and communications services through traditional media and social networking outlets. 

The ideal acquisition candidate has revenue of at least $7 million; however, smaller opportunities may be of interest on a selective basis. Characteristics include a commitment to quality customer service, a strong management team, and long-standing relationships with multi-unit retail clients, including quick-service restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, department stores, and other retailers such as drug and apparel. GSP is seeking companies located in select U.S. cities in the Northeast, Midwest and Southwest (principally Texas), as well as Ontario, Canada.
