Affinum has sold a minority stake in Cotta to L-GAM and founder
COTTA Collection is one of Europe’s leading white-label manufacturers of upholstered furniture in the low-to-medium-range price segment. Products include upholstered sofas, armchairs and beds, which are manufactured in 14 production sites across Poland, Hungary, Romania and Bosnia and Herzegovina with more than 5,000 employees. COTTA Collection has a pan-European sales footprint and serves a prestigious customer base comprising the “who-is-who” of the European furniture retail industry, including the leading online furniture players.
Following a comprehensive process involving both strategic and financial investors, Afinum sold its stake in COTTA Collection to L-GAM and Gschwend AG. The transaction will enable COTTA Collection to follow its strategy with a strong, long-term-oriented partner.
Øyvind Bjordal, Managing Director and head of Lincoln’s Switzerland office, commented, “During the last few years, the management team, together with Afinum, has done an impressive job in developing COTTA Collection into the leading pan-European manufacturer of white-label upholstered furniture. With L-GAM, the company has secured a great new long-term-oriented partner.”
We thank Lincoln for its strong support in securing a long-term solution for COTTA Collection.
