Research Publications

Driven by founding partner Jerry Epperson’s respected insight and long-term commitment to the furniture and mattress industries, Mann, Armistead & Epperson, Ltd. publishes the monthly Furnishings Digest Newsletter in addition to various manufacturing, retail, distribution, strategy and demographic reports that are available for purchase individually or by annual subscription. For more information, please email or click here.



Whereas many research analysts must initiate calls with companies, top management teams regularly seek us out to discuss industry issues and statistics that are not available elsewhere. Our distinctive approach to research has enabled us to provide an unparalleled quality of tailored strategic and financial consulting services to management teams and investors searching for a competitive advantage. We offer rare data points and a unique business perspective, shaped by over 125 years of aggregate experience.

We have known many of today’s top executives on a personal level long before they gained their current positions at their respective companies. In many cases, we worked with the companies for years before they went public, and have known multiple generations of owners/managers of family-controlled firms. Our clients have found it comforting that we can relate current deals and business cycles with past historical events on a macroeconomic, industry and company level. Committed to thinking about strategy and long range planning alongside numerous public and private companies, the partners at Mann, Armistead & Epperson, Ltd. have earned a strong reputation based on confidentiality, trust and professionalism.


Litigation Support & Expert Witness Testimony

We regularly provide advice and/or assistance in preparing and providing testimony for use by our clients and their attorneys as they prepare for and defend against actual or threatened corporate and personal litigation.
