It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

Press Release:

 

Pelican becomes a new shareholder of Coalision

 

To pursue the international and retail development, Pelican, the fund headed by Bernard Mariette has taken a 21% stake in Coalision which owns the Lole¨ Orage, and Paradox brand.

 

Bernard Mariette becomes, along with his fund Pelican, a 21% shareholder of Coalision after two and a half years of being at the head of the Canadian retail group.

 

The investment will enable Lole¨ to continue its strong growth, particularly focused on retail and international.

 

"Pelican has not simply injected money in Coalision, but it also brings talented, passionate and engaged investors that share our sport and well-being and lifestyle focus culture. I have learned through the years that the recipe for success is the magic between the shareholders, managers, employees, and the challenges to come. I am very lucky to have assembled the ingredients for this recipe at the heart of Coalision and Pelican," declared Bernard Mariette.

 

Among the shareholders of Pelican, Olaf Guerrand, member of the Hermes family and administrator of the group in France and United States join the Coalision board of directors. He sees in the Lole¨ brand a unique potential and that rests on a strong trend.

 

"Ever since I have known Bernard I completely share his vision of the evolution of the sports and well-being market and I am convinced of the potential that Lole¨ has."

 

The majority owners of Coalision, Kilmer, as well as the founders of Coalision, remain investors in the company: "Coalision is developing very fast and it is important to team up with the best possible partners," declares Marie-Claude Boisvert, manager at Kilmer.
