Realised

Together we achieved

  • The turnaround of the business following a period of difficult trading by reassessing its strategy and focusing on stabilisation
  • The realisation of significant and competitive price advantages by the time of exit

This was accomplished by

  • Expanding internationally, which was a key part of the company’s growth with new store openings in the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia, along with franchise stores in Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania
  • Making extensive improvements to the supply chain which focused on direct imports and complete vertical integration
  • To benefit from the acquisition opportunities available for industry consolidation within this highly fragmented sector
