Recapitalization | Historical
Aspen is a leading manufacturer, importer, and marketer of high quality dog and cat products for the pet supply industry. The company produces a full line of innovative toys, collars, leashes, and related accessories that are uniquely packaged and attractively merchandised through independent pet specialty stores and pet superstores.
The owners partnered with Mr. Malizia’s former investment firm to recapitalize the company to monetize some of the value they had built up in their company and to gain an experienced financial partner to help fund and manage the aggressive growth of the business. Only three months after investing in Aspen, Mr. Malizia’s former investment firm funded the acquisition of Booda Products, a Los Angeles based manufacturer of dog and cat products which complemented Aspen’s product mix. The add-on acquisition effectively doubled Aspen’s annual revenues.
