Liberum is pleased to announce the successful completion of a private fundraising for MADE, raising equity proceeds of £40m

MADE is a leading European design brand, that has revolutionised the furniture and homewares markets. MADE operates in 7 European countries and reported 2017 net revenue of £127m, a growth of 40%, a break-even run rate and cash flow positive.

The transaction provides investment funds to accelerate growth and establish MADE’s digital brand leadership across Europe. MADE’s plans include expanding into additional European markets, developing the MADE brand further including the opening of flagship showrooms and continued investment in technology to retain an industry leading platform.

The fund raise included a new tier 1 global institutional investor with an established history of making long term global investments, with further commitments from existing investors.

MADE has had a strong start to 2018 and is well positioned to continue to benefit from the transition from high street to online within the homewares market and capitalise on the growing confidence in digital retail.

Liberum acted as sole bookrunner on this transaction.
