ArkMalibu is pleased to announce that they have collaborated with The Banah Group to serve as financial advisors to Frontier Justice in its sale to Rooted Pursuits, a newly-formed affiliate of Ambassador Enterprises. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Frontier Justice is a premier experiential retail destination that provides fashion, firearms, education, and shooting range experiences in several locations throughout the Midwest. The company was founded by Mike and Bren Brown in 2015, who realized the marketplace needed a shooting sports retailer that was also approachable for women and families. Frontier Justice’s dedication to faith, family, and freedom changed the face of the firearms industry by educating a wider demographic on traditional American values.
“It has been an honor and a privilege to create five Frontier Justice stores across the Midwest,” commented Mike and Bren Brown. “We started Frontier Justice to spread faith, family, freedom, and traditional American values back into this great nation. We did what we set out to do while creating great memories and increased security for the communities we touch. It is exciting to look to the next chapter and where Ambassador and Rooted Pursuits will take these great values.”
About the acquisition process, Mike Brown said, “We are very grateful for those who represented us on this transaction. The team understood our values and found the right buyer who will continue to build on Frontier Justice’s foundation and values. Our representation was professional, caring and we were well-advised.”
Jonathan Harkless, President of The Banah Group, commented on representing the Browns and Frontier Justice in the transaction:
“It was an honor to serve Frontier Justice and the Browns. The values they have cultivated are critical to our country. The strong faith and family values permeate the company culture, creating an environment where the community can be influenced for good. There is an exciting future ahead for Frontier Justice and Rooted Pursuits.”
Peter Kubasek, Founder and CEO of ArkMalibu, also commented on the transaction:
“It was an honor and a privilege to work with Jonathan, Mike, and Bren on this transaction. Frontier Justice’s dedicated company values, quality management team, and top-notch reputation provide an excellent foundation for future growth with Rooted Pursuits.”
Mike and Bren Brown will continue to serve Frontier Justice as consultants.
