Goal to maximize value for 1847 Holdings’ shareholders based on the internal growth and outlook for 1847 Cabinets
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / January 11, 2023 / 1847 Holdings LLC (“1847” or the “Company”) (NYSE American:EFSH), a unique holding company that combines the attractive attributes of owning private, lower-middle market businesses with the liquidity and transparency of a publicly traded company, announced today that its subsidiary 1847 Cabinets Inc., a designer, manufacturer and installer of cabinets, doors and millwork for residential construction, has engaged ThinkEquity, a U.S. investment bank, to evaluate strategic options, including a potential sale, spin-off or other strategic transaction in order to capitalize on its internal growth and favorable outlook for the business.
1847 Cabinet Inc. is comprised of the businesses of Kyle’s, High Mountain and Innovative Cabinets. Kyle’s, which is based in Boise, Idaho, provides a wide variety of construction services including custom design and build of kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, delivery, installation, service and repair, extended warranties, and financing. High Mountain, which is based in Reno, Nevada, specializes in all aspects of finished carpentry products and services, including doors, door frames, base boards, crown molding, cabinetry, bathroom sinks and cabinets, bookcases, built-in closets, and fireplace mantles, among others, as well as window installation. Innovative Cabinets, also based in Reno, Nevada, specializes in custom cabinetry and countertops.
Ellery W. Roberts, CEO and Chairman of the Board of the Company, commented, “We continue to grow and improve the profitability of our portfolio companies. Nevertheless, we believe there is a disconnect between how the public markets are valuing 1847 Holdings, and 1847 Cabinet’s intrinsic value, let alone our other portfolio companies. Given the success of 1847 Cabinets, we believe the time is right to investigate a range of strategic alternatives for this subsidiary in order to maximize value and returns for our shareholders.”
There can be no assurance that this process will result in the Company’s subsidiary 1847 Cabinets Inc. pursuing a sale, spin-off or other strategic outcome. The Company has not set a timetable for completion of this process, and it does not intend to disclose further developments unless and until it determines that further disclosure is appropriate or necessary.
About 1847 Holdings LLC
1847 Holdings LLC (NYSE American: EFSH), a publicly traded diversified acquisition holding company, was founded by Ellery W. Roberts, a former partner of Parallel Investment Partners, Saunders Karp & Megrue, and Principal of Lazard Freres Strategic Realty Investors. 1847 Holdings’ investment thesis is that capital market inefficiencies have left the founders and/or stakeholders of many small business enterprises or lower-middle market businesses with limited exit options despite the intrinsic value of their business. Given this dynamic, 1847 Holdings can consistently acquire businesses it views as “solid” for reasonable multiples of cash flow and then deploy resources to strengthen the infrastructure and systems of those businesses in order to improve operations. These improvements may lead to a sale or IPO of an operating subsidiary at higher valuations than the purchase price and/or alternatively, an operating subsidiary may be held in perpetuity and contribute to 1847 Holdings’ ability to pay regular and special dividends to shareholders.
