US-based merchandising and retail services company SPAR Group has launched a strategic review of its business in an effort to maximise value for its shareholders.

The company’s Board of Directors will consider a full range of strategic alternatives, including a sale, merger, divestiture, recapitalisation or going private.

The board will also consider other strategic transactions or to continue as a public, independent company. It has already begun the process.

No decision has yet been taken for any actions or potential strategic alternatives and there is no certainty that the review will result in a transaction.

SPAR Group president and CEO Mike Matacunas said: “With a strong balance sheet, 90%+ revenue growth over the last five years, increased profit margins, diversified services and long-term relationships with some of the most important consumer goods and retail companies in the world, we believe we are in the best financial and operational position in the company’s history, yet our stock continues to trade well below a comparable industry value.

“The management team is aligned with the Board that the best way to maximise shareholder value is to explore options that will unlock our potential and provide a platform for continued growth and success.

The company’s Americas operations delivered $53.3m in revenue, representing 79% of the total figure.
