Vendis Capital has sold Fatboy to Calligaris Group, a portfolio company of Alpha
Headquartered in Den Bosch, the Netherlands, Fatboy is an iconic lifestyle brand with proven innovation capabilities, a strong digital resonance and a global distribution presence. Since its foundation, the business developed from offering the original bean bag to a cross-category design brand with an outspoken collection of lighting, indoor and outdoor furniture and distinctive accessories.
The acquisition by Calligaris Group enables Fatboy to leverage the group’s complementary global footprint, operational expertise and leading position in the direct-to-consumer and business-to-business segments.
Eric Wijs, Managing Director at Lincoln International, commented, “We are pleased to have advised Vendis and Fatboy management on this transaction. Vendis and management have done a great job developing the foundations for growth in terms of brand power, strong innovation capabilities, online-focused go-to-market and a strengthened organization. With the support of Calligaris Group as a highly synergistic new partner, we are confident that Fatboy will continue its strong growth trajectory.”
Lincoln International acted as the exclusive investment banking advisor to Vendis and Fatboy, working closely with the shareholders and management to realize the sale to Calligaris Group.
Lincoln International’s dedicated senior team, strong sector knowledge and valuable guidance throughout all stages of the transaction process have been instrumental in achieving this great outcome.
