WHAT WE DID

We completed the acquisition through a management buy-out (MBO) in less than three weeks from our initial meeting with management and the existing shareholders. We invested in revamping Dragons’ eCommerce platform and overhauling the existing IT infrastructure (project management, CRM accounting and lead generation) to help the business scale much more efficiently. We also helped the business to standardise products, optimise prices across different markets and customer segments, implement rigorous sales processes, drive higher margin interior design services and grow its international footprint.
