Blackbird Retail Holdings acquired The Cotswold Company in 2009, which is currently one of the UK’s largest online furniture retailers and generates annual revenues in excess of £35m. True Capital will partner with the existing management team to continue to lead the company through its next stage of growth.

Commenting on the deal Tom Leman said:

"The Cotswold Company has grown significantly over the past few years, as online shopping has become a key platform for retail. We are very pleased to see the deal finalised for our clients and in a short time frame of only eight weeks."
