Mergers & Acquisitions / Buy-side Advisory
Helping Pure Barre become a leading national fitness brand.
Pure Barre is largest and most established operator of franchised barre fitness studios, with more than 500 studios across North America.
In 2012, Pure Barre had 71 franchised locations in 23 states. The company came to Arlington looking for liquidity and a value-added partner to help grow the business into a leading, national fitness brand.
Pure Barre partnered with private equity firm WJ Partners, who continued the company’s strong growth trajectory.
L Catterton, a leading consumer-focused private equity firm, hired Arlington to assist in its acquisition of Pure Barre from WJ Partners in 2015. With our help, L Catterton won the deal and successfully acquired Pure Barre.
