YFM Equity Partners achieves successful exit on GO Outdoors

YFM Equity Partners (YFM), the specialist private equity fund manager has realised the investment in GO Outdoors Limited (GO Outdoors), the outdoor clothing and equipment retailer, through a £130m sale to JD Sports Fashion plc.

The sale, together with the partial realisation in 2011, means that YFM has achieved close to 40x the original investment, with a £23m total return.

Chris Matthews, GO Outdoors Chief Executive commented: “I would like to personally thank YFM, for their active involvement, strategic advice and continued support which, in partnership with our exiting founders John Graham and Paul Caplan has helped to grow GO Outdoors into the UK’s largest outdoor retailer.”
