Animal Supply Company Acquired by Summit Partners



Summit Partners and certain funds managed by Goldman Sachs Asset Management acquired a majority stake in the Animal Supply Company (ASC).


Goldman Sachs and Summit have also provided operating and growth capital investment to support the execution of ASC’s strategic plan.


“We are so appreciative of our independent pet retailers, vendors and employees for partnering with us on this journey, especially during this process,” said Don McIntyre, CEO of ASC. “Our team is excited to work with Goldman Sachs and Summit as we look to renew and transform our business. Together, we will take our company to the next level in customer care, digital innovation and growth.”


Randy Reber, current chairman of the board and one of the original founders of ASC, joined the new board of managers.


“I’m very excited for the future of Animal Supply Company and the opportunity to continue to work with Don and an outstanding management team,” said Reber. “This transaction provides the financial and physical foundation upon which we can continue ‘delivering success’ to pet specialty independent retailers. This has always been our guiding principle from day one and will continue to be.”


Reber, along with certain other former owners of ASC, will remain minority shareholders.
