Ivey Imaging Acquisition

Situation

Ivey Imaging LLC (Ivey) is the premier supplier of a wide variety of innovative large format signage, displays, and custom wall coverings and small format graphics projects for clients in the retail, consumer products, media, exhibition and advertising industries in the Pacific NW and nationally. In 2000, UK based Photobition Group Plc acquired Ivey Seright International, a long standing, highly regarded, Seattle company and the predecessor of Photobition Seattle Limited. The transaction was one of eighteen U.S. acquisitions completed by Photobition in the span of a year. Although Photobition succeeded in assembling an international network of graphics services businesses, the expected acquisition economics were not realized and by late 2001 the Photobition Group's creditors placed the firm into receivership in the UK. This chain of events created an opportunity for the acquisition of the assets and business of Photobition Seattle by management and local institutional investors.
