The Gores Group Seeks Buyer for J. Mendel
L.A. private-equity company, The Gores Group, is looking to sell its majority stake in fashion label J. Mendel. The Gores Group acquired the label, which was its first luxury asset, in August 2010. They have now hired an investment-banking firm and a strategic financial adviser to find a new buyer. Sources said the label needs capital to grow and a deep-pocketed partner who is willing to invest in the brand long-term. The Gores Group did not invest enough capital to grow the business to significant profitability since it wasn’t a core holding.
