Carlyle hires BAML to assess possible sale of luxury sneaker brand Golden Goose

Two people familiar with the matter said on Friday that US private equity firm Carlyle had hired Bank of America Merrill Lynch to study the possibility of selling Italian high-end shoe company cheap golden goose Deluxe Brand.

The Carlyle Group acquired the company from Ergon Capital Partners in 2017 and is known for its $ 500 sneakers with five-pointed stars on the sides.

At the time, the company’s equity was worth 400 million euros ($ 440 million).
