GCA Advises Wex Photographic on Its Sale to Aurelius

GCA acted as exclusive financial advisor to the shareholders of Wex Photographic on its sale to Aurelius.

Wex Photographic, established in 1997, is a leading online photo retailer, focused on meeting the needs of enthusiast and pro photographers and videographers. Wex’s dedication to service, expertise and customer satisfaction is underpinned by competitive prices and expansive product offering. Wex was voted “Online Shop of the Year” in 2014 and shortlisted for “Retailer of the Year” in 2015 by Which?, a product review site.

Following the deal, Wex will be merged with Calumet, a multi-channel photographic retailer acquired by Aurelius in June 2016, to create a leading European marketplace serving enthusiast and professional photographers. The combined business will generate revenues of over $190M.
