A minority stake in luxury accessories label Anya Hindmarch has been sold to a private Qatari investment group.
The deal valued the business at £70m and will see chairman and chief creative director Anya Hindmarch remain in her position as well as retaining her position as controlling shareholder.
According to a statement from the brand, the investment marks the next stage in the company’s growth strategy.
Documents filed at Companies House confirm the transaction, saying that the new investor is buying 26,487 new shares in the business, diluting the other investors. The documents did not disclose what proportion of the business the new investor has taken.
Existing investors include London-based private equity firm Kelso Place and Matthew Westerman, a banker from Goldman Sachs.
