Puma Private Equity exits contemporary garden centre business, Rosebourne
Puma Private Equity today announces that garden centre business Rosebourne has been acquired. Puma first deployed funds into the business in 2016 and has since supported the brand with multiple funding rounds totalling £6.7 million.
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.
Carol Paris, CEO at Rosebourne
“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.”
Rupert West, Managing Director of Puma Private Equity
“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.”
