Exclusive Financial Advisor on Merger with Woolrich Europe

Woolrich Inc. and Woolrich Europe (the Woolrich brand related businesses owned by W.P. Lavori in Corso S.r.l.) merged to form Woolrich International, a new holding company responsible for leading and accelerating the future growth and development of the Woolrich brand worldwide. Founded in 1830, and owned by eighth generation family members, Woolrich is the oldest American outdoor clothing brand with two labels: Woolrich Outdoor, distributed in North America, and Woolrich John Rich & Bros, the contemporary high-end outerwear line distributed worldwide. Financo served as exclusive financial advisor – and provided a Fairness Opinion – to Woolrich Inc. in conjunction with this transaction.

“Financo’s deep understanding of the Woolrich brand and the many factors involved in this very complex transaction was truly tremendous. Financo was a true partner throughout the process and their expertise and involvement was the driver in bringing this transaction to a close. We welcome the opportunity to recommend Financo’s services to any firm in need of strategic guidance going forward.”
