Grand Avenue Capital was engaged by the Sanpower Group of Nanjing (Jiangsu Province) to assist its publicly traded electronics retail subsidiary in acquiring an electronics retailer in the United States. Sanpower, the second-largest electronics retailer in China, markets computer equipment, digital equipment, game entertainment equipment, life electronic and  smart wearable equipment, and other products. Sanpower Group also operates a department store retail business.


Grand Avenue assembled a team of international service providers (legal, accounting, marketing consulting, real estate disposition firm, and human resources consultants) as well as prospective financial partners in order to affect an acquisition campaign. The Grand Avenue team interfaced directly with Yuan Yafei, Chairman of Sanpower.


Fifteen prospective prospects were vetted with numerous facility visits throughout the US introducing Sanpower to the US retail electronics market. Sanpower ultimately acquired Brookstone in a 363 bankruptcy transaction. 

Grand Avenue Capital was subsequently engaged by Sanpower to investigate several other US acquisition markets: senior care services and hardware appliance companies, 3D printing companies and optical fiber and cable companies.
