FFL’s puts its eyes on optometry

Private Equity firm Friedman Fleischer & Lowe’s acquisition of a second platform in the optometry industry is a signal that aggregation in the industry is underway and that private equity may play a more active role in the future. Thomas Puckett, of merger and acquisition advisory firm HPC Puckett & Co., has pointed out that the biggest challenge now is for private equity firms to find sizeable assets to back. He also added that investment options are currently on the smaller side, the sweet spot being entities with $10 million to $50 million in enterprise value.
