Financial Advisor to OFFICE on Sale to Silverfleet Capital

OFFICE, a U.K.-based retailer and wholesaler of high-quality footwear brands, and its private equity owners, West Coast Capital, sought the global expertise of the Financo team. Financo guided OFFICE through a competitive process that included introductions to and discussions with potential buyers located in the U.K., the U.S.A. and continental Europe.

Financo’s insights and execution capabilities helped OFFICE secure Silverfleet as a financial sponsor in a transaction providing capital for OFFICE’s next phase of growth while retaining upside opportunity for the management team.
