Letts Filofax Group verkauft

Der Telegraph berichtet heute, dass die Letts Filofax Group von HSGP Investments gekauft wurde - bestehend aus dem kanadischen Unternehmer Harold Savoy (Blueline/Rediform Group) und Gordon Presly, dem CEO der Filofax Letts Group:
"Harolde Savoy, whose family owns the Blueline/Rediform stationery supplier group in North America, has agreed to purchase the Letts Filofax Group with its chief Gordon Presly, under the joint venture HSGP Investments.

The two stationery industry veterans have been associates and friends for more than a decade. Mr Presly said the industry was “ripe for consolidation”.

“After leading the company for 13 years under private equity ownership, which has been exciting and demanding, this new ownership structure gives us a longer-term outlook and also brings fresh long-term support for the company,” he said. [...]"

The Scotsman schreibt dazu:

"[...] The two stationery industry veterans have been associates and friends for more than ten years. 
Savoy said: “The first diary I purchased in 1984 was a Letts product, so it’s very exciting to be able to now acquire a company that I have respected my whole business life. I have known Gordon for over ten years and it’s exciting to have the opportunity to now work with him.” 
Presly added: “The stationery industry is ripe for consolidation and I am delighted that Harolde and I have been able to acquire Letts Filofax. The prospect of partnering with an industry colleague who is a ‘strategic player’ was really compelling for me. 
“After leading the company for 13 years under private equity ownership, which has been exciting and demanding, this new ownership structure gives us a longer-term outlook and also brings fresh long-term support for the company, its customers, suppliers and employees.”"


Was das für uns bedeutet? Warten wir's ab. Mehr können wir ja eh nicht tun.
