458 acted for Olsam on its successful acquisition of a leading UK-based camping and outdoor brand, Colapz. Brothers Ollie and Sam Hõrbye founded Olsam in 2020, an Amazon aggregator that acquires and scales category leading brands across global marketplaces.

Nathan Lapsley, who led the 458 team said: “Having worked with Olsam from the very beginning of their journey, we were thrilled to help deliver yet another addition to their growing portfolio of exciting brands. The strength of the brand and products within the Colapz range will make for a very exciting addition to the Olsam offering. As always, we really enjoyed working closely with the Investment team and helping them achieve a successful closing. We look forward to witnessing the growth of the brand over the coming years.”

Ollie Hõrbye comments

“We have been using the team at 458 since we began Olsam back in 2020. Their expertise played a crucial part in making the Colapz acquisition a reality for us. 458 were able to guide us seamlessly through all aspects of the transaction process, pulling in specialists from other areas to navigate complexities and allowing us to forge a solid foundation for Colapz’s future. This deal marked a significant milestone in our journey and as always, we really appreciate the value add that 458 brings to our M&A and other strategic transactions.”
