MIAMI-Evolution Lighting, an affiliate of Boyne Capital Partners, has acquired the assets of Catalina Lighting through a section 363 asset sale under Chapter 11. The company is now Evolution Lighting, doing business as Catalina.
Boyne is a private equity firm that acquires companies generating between $2 million and $10 million of cash flow, and focuses on the consumer product, healthcare, niche manufacturing and financial services industries, according to a statement from the company.
Meyer added that there were no changes in management or company associates, and the Catalina brand "will continue into the future with no change. This is a very important brand."
Derek McDowell, managing partner, Boyne, added, "We are excited about the acquisition of Catalina. We were impressed with the strength of the management team as well as its market position. We viewed Catalina as the classic 'good company with a bad balance sheet'."
Catalina Lighting filed for bankruptcy protection in February.
