Financial Advisor on Sale of Southern Tide to Oxford Industries

Financo was hired to sell Southern Tide, one of the fastest growing lifestyle brands in the United States that offers a well-differentiated and comprehensive collection of high-quality apparel with a growing, multi-channel distribution footprint.

Financo leveraged its extensive industry expertise and relationships to prepare Southern Tide and its management team for sale, drive a competitive process and ultimately consummate a transaction with Oxford Industries.  Oxford’s deep appreciation for lifestyle branding and excellent track record of growth proved to be ideal as the chosen strategic partner for Southern Tide and its management team.
