“Under Justin’s leadership, KLIM has grown to embody all of the elements of an authentic and iconic brand that consistently delivers on the promises it makes to consumers. The company’s advanced design, development, and manufacturing of technical riding gear has made it a visionary in the market, and a go-to brand for outdoor adventure enthusiasts,” said David Howitt, founder and CEO of Meriwether Group. “When KLIM first approached Meriwether about a deal, we actively sought a buyer who would continue to advance KLIM’s reputation and vision, while providing the brand with new growth opportunities. Polaris’ acquisition of KLIM is recognition of the enormous brand equity and customer loyalty that KLIM has built.”“The Pacific Northwest has a long history of incubating influential consumer brands. A commitment to high quality products – as well as business models built around social, economic, and environmental responsibility – have become hallmarks of brands in this region, and outsiders are looking to capture this authenticity and the consumer trust it engenders through strategic acquisitions. Polaris’ acquisition of KLIM underscores the opportunities available to top tier consumer brands in the region,” said Bryan Jaffe, Managing Director of the Middle Market practice at Cascadia Capital. “This deal showcases Cascadia and Meriwether’s partnership mentality when it comes to deal-making – coupling our proven transaction expertise and our in-depth understanding of the dynamics shaping the middle market sectors in the Pacific Northwest, with our clients desire to align long-term business and industry goals with liquidity outcomes.” About Meriwether Group Meriwether Group, Inc. is a business acceleration firm and trusted advisor to iconic brands and growing businesses.
