Gordon Brothers, the global advisory and investment firm, has provided Tuesday Morning a $10 million committed term loan to increase the company’s liquidity and support its continued growth.
Tuesday Morning, a publicly traded off-price retailer of housewares, home furnishings and seasonal décor, will use the funds to refinance and pay off existing debt and for working capital.
“Tuesday Morning’s veteran leadership team successfully navigated a pandemic-driven downturn and initiated a recovery plan to support Tuesday Morning’s transformation to a true off-price retailer,” said Kyle C. Shonak, Head of Lending, North America at Gordon Brothers. “We’re thrilled to deliver the capital needed to achieve continued resiliency for the company.”
“Gordon Brothers’ team of experts has been an invaluable resource to us,” said Jennifer Robinson, Chief Financial Officer at Tuesday Morning. “With their support, we have improved our liquidity and were able to repurchase $5 million of our higher interest rate term loan.”
Gordon Brothers provides both short- and long-term capital to clients undergoing transformation. The firm lends against and invests in brands, real estate, inventory, receivables, machinery, equipment and other assets, both together and individually, to provide clients liquidity solutions beyond its market-leading disposition and appraisal services.
