Exclusive Financial Advisor to Hunter Douglas on Acquisition of Hillarys

Hunter Douglas, a major manufacturer of window coverings (Luxaflex®) and architectural products, turned to Financo for advice again on the acquisition of Hillarys, a leading U.K. retailer of blinds, curtains and carpets with significant expertise in in-home sales, from Ares Capital Corporation. The acquisition adds a strong brand and value offer for a wide customer base to Hunter Douglas in the U.K.

“Financo partnered with us again and worked seamlessly with our senior team in managing the successful acquisition in a competitive process and under a tight timeframe”

– David Sonnenberg, Co-President & CEO, Hunter Douglas Group

This transaction was completed prior to Raymond James’ acquisition of Financo.
