Goldner Hawn eyes Allen Edmonds exit


exit 15_sqPrivate equity company Goldner Hawn Johnson Morrison is reportedly considering selling men’s dress shoe company Allen Edmonds.

A deal could value the business at $150m to $200m, said Reuters, citing two sources familiar with the matter.

Minneapolis-based Goldner Hawn has hired financial services firm Robert W. Baird & Co to help sell the company.

The firm bought a 90 per cent stake in Allen Edmonds, which currently has 32 stores across the US, for $100m in 2006.

Recent private equity deals in the sector included the acquisition of Cole Haan from Nike for $570m late last year.
