Customer & Market Due Diligence of Leading Mobility Products Distributor: Assessing Consumer Willingness to Buy and Lender Willingness to Finance a Lower-priced Product
Assessed consumer willingness to buy a lower-priced product and lender willingness to finance the product. Through a consumer panel survey of high-wheelchair-usage consumers (either users or caregivers), and a survey of target’s customer and prospect database, Gotham established that WAV is a need-based product that offers significant quality of life improvement -- a new lower-priced product would open up another ~20% of market. Through our ability to get to the right auto lending decision makers, we were quickly able to establish what the target should expect in terms of financing and which lenders to target. Our client was excited about the opportunity, presented our findings to the target’s management, and pursued a more aggressive bid.Show Details
