H.I.G. Capital ("H.I.G."), a leading global private equity investment
firm with more than $25 billion of equity capital under management, is
pleased to announce that one of its portfolio companies, Town & Country
Holdings, Inc. ("T&C") has acquired Home Dynamix LLC ("HDX"), a leading
wholesaler of floor rugs, mats and bedding, headquartered in North
Arlington, New Jersey, and Amalgamated Textiles USA ("ATI"), a leading
supplier of window treatments and hardware, headquartered in Montreal,
Quebec.

T&C, already the recognized leader in table linens, kitchen textiles,
rugs, and innovative solution-based home products, will now offer
additional home textiles products spanning across floor and accent rugs,
bedding, pet beds, decorative pillows, window treatments, and window
hardware. Through these acquisitions, T&C has expanded its sizeable
footprint of major retailers across the globe, supplying both licensed
programs and private label programs, as well its capabilities in
ecommerce sales and fulfillment.

David Beyda, Chairman of Town and Country Holdings, and CEO of the
combined entity, said: "We are pleased to welcome both Home Dynamix and
Amalgamated Textiles into the Town & Country family. We have a deep
respect for the people and products that have made these companies
successful. The acquisitions of Home Dynamix and Amalgamated Textiles
are in line with our long-term strategy to grow T&C into a diversified,
multi-channel and multi-product leader."

"We are extremely excited to materially expand T&C's customer base and
product offerings so quickly after our initial investment, " added
H.I.G. Managing Director Todd Ofenloch. "Both HDX and ATI bring
significant management experience, product expertise, and successful
track records that immediately bolster T&C's efforts to execute on our
long-term strategy."

Rami Evar, President of Home Dynamix, said: "We are thrilled to partner
up with a very respected, dedicated and passionate team in the home
furnishing space. We strongly believe that joining Town & Country and
H.I.G. will lead to a strong next chapter of our combined business."

"We are very pleased to partner with Town & Country and H.I.G.," said
Bobby Stoller, President and CEO of Amalgamated Textiles. "They have
demonstrated an understanding of our vision for the business, an
appreciation for how we have differentiated ourselves in the market and
they have the expertise to allow us to accelerate our growth and serve
our customers."

The consummation of these two add-on acquisitions represents the
successful completion of the first phase of H.I.G.'s investment strategy
for Town & Country following the initial platform investment completed
in January 2018. Town & Country will continue to pursue acquisitions in
the home textiles and accessories sector.
