Read the Full Report: 2015 BDO Retail Compass Survey of CFOs

In January of this year, we conducted our ninth annual Retail Compass Survey of CFOs, which asked 100 retail CFOs at leading U.S. retailers about their outlook for the industry in the year ahead. We found that along with optimistic sales projections, retailers provided their most bullish forecast for M&A activity in the survey’s history and expect strategic buyers to be the most acquisitive. Retailers also project modest e-commerce sales growth, and remain focused on fueling that growth by bolstering their online offerings and security with investments in their digital channels and IT systems.
