CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 14, 2016 — Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC (DCF) acted as exclusive financial advisor to The Marena Group, Inc. (Marena) on its recapitalization with The Riverside Company (Riverside). The transaction closed on Oct. 21, 2015.

In 2012, DCF advised Marena on a mezzanine financing. Since then, Marena has experienced significant growth.
“DCF has been a critical strategic advisor to Marena twice now. We are thrilled with the results of our recent equity recapitalization process and the valuable, high-touch advice from DCF’s transaction team at every stage of the process. Partnering with The Riverside Company is an exciting new step as we continue pursuing our growth initiatives,” said Vera Watkins, chief executive officer, Marena.
In today’s market, private companies like Marena are using equity recapitalizations to drive their next phase of growth. Marena is working to continue its expansion to help patients and consumers benefit from medical grade compression products. Assisting Marena in its partnership with the experienced team at The Riverside Company was immensely gratifying.
