Target identification and qualification, and market analysis

The leadership team, comprised of private equity and company executives, wanted to determine the size and character of demand for tires and related services in China as well as profile acquisition targets. The objective was to determine the relative attractiveness, the cost of entry and the complexity of implementing a national roll-up of the tire distribution market in China.
