Financial Advisor to Hanna Andersson on Sale to L Catterton

Hanna Andersson, a leading premium children’s apparel and lifestyle brand, utilized Financo’s apparel and omnichannel expertise to maximize value throughout a sale process.

Hanna Andersson grew from a highly successful catalog brand to become the most prominent and fastest growing premium brand in the children’s specialty apparel category. With a successful omni-channel platform, Hanna Andersson generated double-digit annual revenue growth from 2010 to its sale. In partnership with L Catterton, Hanna Andersson plans to rapidly expand its retail store presence by adding to its footprint both domestically and internationally over the coming years.

“Financo’s long history with our brand and understanding of our business and market opportunity were factors in helping to drive a great outcome in the sale. Financo provided helpful and thoughtful advice throughout the process and I am delighted with, and excited about, our new partnership with L Catterton.”

– Adam Stone, CEO, Hanna Andersson
