Puma Private Equity has exited Rosebourne after its acquisition. Since 2016, they supported the brand with multiple funding rounds totalling £6.7m.
The exit has been realised following a bid by Hillier Garden Centres, a family-run horticultural business with more than 155 years of expertise.
Rosebourne is a contemporary garden centre business that stocks plants, gifts and homewares while serving fresh, locally sourced produce at its restaurants and food halls. It has centres across three sites: Weyhill, Aldermaston and Hampton in Arden.
“Puma Private Equity have been a partner in our growth story since 2016. They have also been hands on commercially – particularly as we went through the Covid 19 pandemic.”
“Over the five years that Puma Private Equity have been a part of our business, the team have been instrumental in helping us scale. We’d like to thank the whole team for the support and guidance they have provided.”
Carol Paris, CEO at Rosebourne
“Over the past few years, Rosebourne has established itself as a high-end brand in the sector, with its modern garden centres offering something for all visitors. It’s been a pleasure to work with the Rosebourne team over the last six years and support them on their journey, and we wish them every success for the future.”
