We will assist our partners and clients to identify highly attractive, unconventional opportunities that others fail to explore due to lack of resources.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
Today 6Pacific Group announced it is creating a new business practice to arrange and participate in many forms of corporate collaborations, including licenses, distribution agreements, joint ventures, partnerships, and other corporate development opportunities. The new practice will be called Corporate Partnering and will utilize the firm’s global offices and network of strategic relationships.
Many of these collaborations will be cross-border, and will involve the exchange of highly valuable brand equity, intellectual property, know-how or corporate resources. These opportunities can assist multiple parties in creating substantial value by maximizing their joint return on invested capital.
"We believe in the power of value creation through collaborations and partnerships in the consumer industry," said John Barrymore, Managing Partner of 6Pacific. "There are many unexpected and often missed opportunities for two or more parties to jointly partner, invest, acquire or otherwise engage in joint value creation. We will assist our partners and clients to identify highly attractive, unconventional opportunities that others fail to explore due to lack of resources."
The industry insights of 6Pacific's team of twelve highly experienced consumer products professionals will provide unique vision into the opportunities that can be created through corporate partnerships. 6Pacific will utilize both its global relationships and proprietary capital base to facilitate and participate in these new opportunities.
“We are launching our new practice to take advantage of major recent advancements in technology and scientific research that can be applied to consumer products. With the continued convergence of standards across markets around the world, these applications are now more transferable than ever. At the same time, we see that consumers want to be honored by being offered a steady flow of new and unique products by both marketers and retailers. Our licensed technologies will provide strong opportunities for new product development with our partner companies,” said Tariq Afghan, Managing Director of 6Pacific.
