From what I see in store sales seem to be increasing instead of falling. Sales seem to be strong and steady.

Salons are pricey. Doing your own pedicure or highlights isn't, especially if you can buy "professional" supplies. Certainly not endorsing the "do-it-yourself" method. Orange hair doesn't look good on anyone.

The next quarter's earnings should blow away last years because of their move into online sales.

Sally has an excellent management team in place and they have come up with a strategy to make-up for the L'oreal loss in its BSG division. I believe that the they will increase the number of non-L'oreal lines because these manufacturers do not want to be distributed by a company that is owned by L'oreal. L'oreal also has a big problem with the salon industry in that it is the most diverted product out there, meaning that it is sold in non-salon entities. L'oreal is losing their creditability with salons. The new lines that BSG is adding are more poised for growth and are not diverted.

With all the bad news, this company's price haven't really changed during the last year or so . This is a great sign of a good business in some distress. Now the question is this: do you believe the management is going to bring a change? I do. Even a small growth with push the stock 40% percent higher.
By the way, they control more than 30% percent of the market. This is the closest thing you can get to a monopoly in such a fragmented market.

Spun off of Alberto Culver. Beauticians spend a lot of money in these stores. They shop frequently for their products and having a brick and morter store close by is a necessity.

While I believe this is a solid company with a strong competitive position in an attractive niche, I think the current stock price incorporates overly rosy expectations. Although results in the recent quarter were good, the company has yet to report a full quarter reflecting the loss of the L'Oreal. Additionally, the high level of debt incurred will result in less free cash flow.

Just recently spun off and has a large distribution network for beauty products. The market is highly fragmented, and SBH has a strong network.

Sally Beauty is the largest consolidator in a very fragmented business. Whenever a stylist sells a bottle of shampoo or conditioner to a salon customer, she has to get resupplied. She can't go to Wal-Mart or a drug store, so she has to get product directly from the manufacturer or from a middle-person like Sally. (Beauty product companies work hard to promote "salon-quality" products and they would loose their cachet if they could be bought just anywhere.) Sally's biggest competitor is Regis, which is attempting to consolidate the highly-fragmented salon business. I think Sally Beauty will be more successful since shampoo is a commodity and stylists aren't.

This is your chance to participate in LBO mania. Usually, leveraged buyouts remove a stock from the public markets for a few years while management restructures, which means the public sees little of the investment gains. Fortunately, CD&R has left a slice of equity on the market for you and I to invest in. The huge debt is scary looking, but if viewed in terms of an LBO it should be seen as mostly positive.

Also, see my ACV pitch.

Spin off opportunity. Will allow this distributor to expand product lines.
