Strategic Valuation for a Family-Owned Premier Branded Product

In October 2007, de Visscher acted as exclusive financial advisor to Teddy and Arthur Edelman, Limited (“Edelman Leather”), the world’s premier branded luxury leather provider in the four major niche markets – high-end residential interiors, corporate interiors, hospitality and private executive aviation.
Strategic Liquidity Solutions
Teddy and Arthur Edelman had founded and developed an international business providing exceptional product quality and service to its luxury markets and well-recognized customer base. Primary ownership of the business had been transferred to the second generation under the leadership of their son John as President. Given its strong continued growth, the company had received expressions of interest from potential strategic as well as financial purchasers and the shareholders decided to obtain professional investment banking advice. de Visscher was selected from several firms, given its experience in maximizing shareholder value for family-owned businesses, as well as its domestic and international contact network.

“de Visscher & Co. took time to learn the company’s business and potential and to understand the shareholders’ objectives. As a result, we worked smoothly together throughout the process, driving the transaction forward while the management team continued to produce strong operating results.”
