Miles Kimball on the Block

Multititle mailer Miles Kimball is being shopped around by owner Sun Capital Partners, just 18 months after the Boca Raton, FL-based private equity firm acquired the cataloger.

Miles Kimball chairman/president/CEO Mike Muoio could not comment on a report on financial news Website TheDeal.com stating that Chicago-based investment bank Houlihan Lokey Howard & Zukin was auctioning off the Oshkosh, WI-based cataloger. But a bank representative did acknowledge that the institution was involved in a possible sale of Miles Kimball.

In addition to its flagship gifts and housewares book, Miles Kimball mails the upscale Exposures title of photo frames and related items, which it acquired in 1992. The company will mail 77 million books this year and expects to generate $10 million of EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) on $125 million in sales for 2002.
