Fargro Limited’s Management Buyout

In UK Irwin Mitchell, advised on the matter.

Irwin Mitchell advised Fargro Limited with a team including Faye Bargery (Picture – Corporate M&A).

The deal, which has been supported by private equity partner, Ashridge Capital, will enable Fargro to adopt a more agile approach to its growth strategy.

This new structure will allow the West Sussex-based business to invest in R&D, new product development, and business growth, more quickly and with more flexibility than the previous structure could support.

Despite the closure of garden centres in 2020 due to Covid-19, Fargro has enjoyed a strong operating year, capitalising on increased consumer demand as the UK population turned to its gardens and window-boxes to improve mental wellbeing during recent lockdown.
