Exclusive Financial Advisor to Bain Capital on its Partnership with TOMS

TOMS began as a shoe company that matched every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need – One for One™. This simple idea evolved into a global movement that continues to address needs and advance health, education and economic opportunities for children and their communities around the world.

Bain Capital leveraged Financo’s unique insights and relationships to acquire a 50% stake in this leading, mission-driven business.  The partnership and investment support is intended to accelerate the growth of TOMS and its giving programs globally.

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