Haights Cross For Sale

Haights Cross, which went through a corporate recapitalization last year has announced that it is placing itself up for sale. From the press release on the company's web site:
Paul J. Crecca, HCC’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Upon the completion of our recapitalization in August 2007 and the constitution of our Board of Directors, we indicated we would evaluate all strategic alternatives, including the possible sale of all or substantially all of our assets. Throughout this process, the Haights Cross businesses and our committed employees have remained focused on providing customers with quality products and services, and thus strengthening their positions in the markets they serve. We believe that despite the current economic environment, these assets offer compelling value to prospective buyers.”

The company indicated that Evercore Partners would conduct the sale.
