In addition to a high-quality product, TSI offers expert guidance in project management, estimating, and quality control.
Innovative Companies, Inc, headquartered in New York, New York, was founded in 2021 as a holding company to acquire leading display, exhibit and sign manufacturing companies. Prior to the acquisition of Taylor Studios, Innovative Companies acquired Merchandising Partners, LLC a leading point of purchase manufacturer in May of this year. Innovative Companies, Inc. remains interested in acquiring other leading point-of-purchase, exhibit and sign manufacturers.
Generational Equity Executive Managing Director of M&A – Central Region, Michael Goss, and his team, led by Senior M&A Advisor, Prasad Karcherla, with support from Managing Director, Mergers & Acquisitions, Ryan Johnson, successfully closed the deal. Senior Managing Director David Robinson established the initial relationship with TSI.
“This acquisition is a great strategic fit for both Taylor Studios and Innovative Companies, Inc and I expect great success for both going forward. We were able to close this deal fairly quickly along with the two Real Estate properties associated with the business and a continued key role for Betty Brennan (owner of Taylor Studios) post-sale,” said Karcherla.
He added, “I had great pleasure working both with Betty and Reggie Binford of Proviso Capital and wish them both the best in their future endeavors.”
“This acquisition will help further Proviso Capital’s strategy of building a global display, exhibit and sign manufacturing company built around innovative design. The design talent and fabrication capabilities at Taylor Studios coupled with the manufacturing capabilities at Merchandising Partners will help further this strategy,” said Reggie Binford, Managing Partner at Proviso Capital.
