Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

Their access to those who make our industry happen is second to none, and we value not only the content of their reporting but the editorial thought on what it all means both in the present as well as the future. If we were asked to give a rating, it would be five out of five stars.

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. 

 

"We believe in the brand, Bernard leadership and the team that is developing the brands. We are delighted to include new partners who are of the quality of the partners of Pelican.
