The DAK Group Represents Leading Vendor of Home Storage Products in Strategic Acquisition

The DAK Group is pleased to announce the strategic acquisition of E-Z DO, Inc., a leading national supplier of home organization and storage products to mass market retailers, to a highly strategic private company buyer. The DAK Group served as exclusive financial advisor to E-Z DO in a transaction that resulted in an attractive valuation for the Company’s stakeholders.

E-Z DO has been selling merchandise to the mass merchant channel since 1973. The Company covers a broad range of home storage and organization products unmatched by any one competitor. E-Z DO engaged The DAK Group to identify a strategic acquirer who would accelerate the Company’s growth.

The DAK Group spearheaded our effort and identified the perfect company” said Jim Zellner, President of E-Z DO who will remain with the combined operation.

“We’re extremely pleased that our unique strategic approach in uncovering the right buyer resulted in a transaction with numerous manufacturing and distribution synergies,” said Lisa Stern, Managing Director at The DAK Group. “This transaction offers a great opportunity for the buyer to grow its business while expanding the availability of E-Z DO’s high-quality products in the marketplace.”
