Armstrong looks into Cooke Optics
Armstrong has provided customer due diligence for Cooke Optics, a manufacturer of high end cine lenses to the global film, television and advertising industries.
We were first involved with Cooke in 2015, providing CDD support for Growth Capital Partners’ investment. New investor Caledonia Investments plc is investing in Cooke to support the next phase of growth, developing new products and investing in production capacity. The deal provides an exit for GCP at a money multiple of 4.4x.
The business produces several specialist product ranges to achieve a unique cinematic look, valued by cinematographers, which have been used for decades on high-end films and television series including the Harry Potter franchise and Games of Thrones.
