OKA Direct Ltd has been acquired by Investindustrial

The private shareholders of OKA Direct Ltd have sold the company to Investindustrial for an undisclosed consideration.

Founded in 1999, OKA is renowned for creating interior designed homes featuring curated collections of British designed furniture and home accessories. The company has a strong direct-to-consumer offering, with a well-established online platform supported by a retail portfolio of 14 strategically placed showrooms, a successful interior design service, a strong mail order catalogue offering and a complementary trade division. At the time of sale, the shareholders included funds managed by FPE Capital, which acquired a majority stake in the company in 2007.

Investindustrial is a leading European group of independently managed investment, holding and advisory companies with US$8 billion of raised fund capital and has previously invested in well-known brands such as Aston Martin, Ducati and B&B Italia. The acquisition of OKA is part of Investindustrial’s selective investments in high-growth companies in the small and lower mid-market, building on its prior expertise in luxury brands and homewares.

Oaklins Cavendish, based in the UK, advised the seller in this transaction.
