Merchandising Partners


May 2021



We are pleased to announce the sale of our client, Merchandising Partners, LLC, to Proviso Capital. The acquisition closed May 21, 2021.

Located in North Granby, Connecticut, Merchandising Partners (MP) is a full-service provider for merchandising needs throughout the United States. The company offers the manufacturing of point of sale displays, custom fabricating and machining, brokering of merchandise packaging, and fulfilling services to hand-tool manufacturers, OEMs, retailers, and distributors in the U.S.

MP is a one-stop source for all merchandising needs. The entire process, including graphic development, packaging concepts, packaging procurement/manufacturing, fulfillment, and inventory/distribution, is provided by MP.

Proviso Capital (Proviso), located in New York City, was founded in 2014 to invest in strong and sometimes overlooked lower middle market companies in competitive niche industries.

Proviso seeks to provide capital and strategic resources to established lower middle market and founder-owned businesses in a variety of industries with experienced management teams, a solid operating history, and demonstrated growth potential. When Proviso invests in a business, they lend their full support to the business both financially and operationally.

Generational Equity Executive Managing Director, M&A-Technology Practice Leader, David Fergusson, and his team, led by Senior M&A Advisor, Jeff Carignan, with the support of Vice President, Mergers & Acquisitions, Tristan Keeffe, successfully closed the deal. Senior Managing Director Roger Dean established the initial relationship with MP.

“It was a pleasure to be a part of this deal. It featured an experienced buyer and a motivated seller, both knowledgeable and professional. Merchandising Partners is a great fit for Proviso and the company is poised for sustained growth. It couldn’t be in better hands,” said Carignan.
