CONSUMER RECREATIONAL PRODUCTS TRANSACTION

Integris Partners recently advised Ameristep, Inc. on its sale to Synergy Outdoors. Ameristep, established in 1992, is the leading designer and distributor of hunting blinds, tree stands and tree steps. It delivers these products under some of the industry’s most powerful brands, including Ameristep, Bone Collector, Archer’s Choice and Non-Typical. Synergy is a leading manufacturer of game management products, crossbows and related outdoor goods.

“The Integris team understood not only the hunting and shooting industry, but the dynamics of seasonal businesses and the nature of our customers. They used their experience to help our shareholders achieve their goals while delivering a tremendous partner for the future,” said Brett Wehner, Founder and CEO of Ameristep.

Bob Ransom, President of Ameristep, added, “Integris was a terrific partner for Ameristep and its shareholders. While we are experts in the hunting space, the deal world was completely foreign to us. Integris guided us through the process from start to finish with clear, concise advice. They put the right deal in place from a price and terms perspective and made sure we were comfortable throughout the process. Synergy and Ameristep are a tremendous fit. We can’t wait to see what the future holds. We are thrilled to join forces with the Synergy team and look forward to executing our long term initiatives together.”

Ameristep (www.Ameristep.com) is headquartered in Clio, Michigan and delivers its products through the nation’s most powerful sporting goods retailers. The combination of Synergy and Ameristep provides retailers with a one-stop shop for a wide range of their hunting accessory and outdoor product needs.
