May 5, 2010 - Multichannel Merchant quotes Chris Kampe, Managing Director of Tully & Holland's Retail and Consumer Group in an article published last week in the B to B section.
The article discusses Sport Supply Group's acquisition of Coaches Sports Corner, a regional team sports distributor and certain assets of Greg Larson Sports, a national cataloger and regional team sports distributor. Formerly Collegiate Pacific, Sport Supply Group manufactures and distributes sporting goods and branded team uniforms to the institutional and team sports market. Chris Kampe commented, "Sport Supply's acquisition targets represent relatively small add-on or bolt-on acquisitions of primarily local and regional sporting goods distributors. The merchant's rationale is growth through acquisition to expand its geographic footprint or gain additional share of existing markets."
