Hilco Streambank announced that it is soliciting offers for the intangible assets of Agway Farm & Home Supply, a wholesale product distribution company servicing more than 1,500 independently owned, authorized dealers along the east coast. The assets include its highly recognized “Agway” brand name, well-established private label product brands and dealer list.
Agway’s wholesale product distribution network generated more than $225 million, including approximately $850,000 in dealer fees from the use of the respected Agway brand name.
“This is a unique opportunity to acquire a highly regarded brand in the lawn and garden, hardware and agricultural supply and farm products space,” commented Hilco Streambank Executive Vice President David Peress. He continued “The Agway brand platform has a nearly 60-year history of delivering value to its dealers and their customers, providing solutions for their farms, gardens, pets and homes.”
The seller has entered into a stalking horse agreement, which remains subject to higher and better offers.
