Something Unique


Jan 2016



Generational Equity, a leading mergers and acquisitions advisor for privately-held, middle-market businesses, is pleased to announce the acquisition of its client, Something Unique, Inc., headquartered in Denison, Iowa, by Envision Tees (Envision), headquartered in Dubuque, Iowa. The acquisition closed on January 26, 2016. "We have been focused on growing our services offered and customers locally and regionally," said Tom Rauen, owner of Envision. "We're extremely happy to offer existing clients of Something Unique with a great customer experience and look forward to serving the Denison area along with western Iowa," Rauen said.

Something Unique offers custom apparel, awards, signs and promotional products to corporate clients, small businesses, schools and events. Managing Director Michael Goss and his team, including affiliate Chris Barnard and Todd McGreevey, and Vice President Bryan Gooden, led the Generational Equity deal team that advised Something Unique on the transaction. "Geography was going to be the largest challenge for finding a great fit for the business the Kitts had built," stated Chris Barnard. "Fortunately, Tom Rauen's vision is statewide and the chemistry between the buyer and seller's leadership styles as well as the Kitt's strong client list made this a very strategic acquisition despite the geographic challenge."
