Die Cuts With a View (“DCWV”), an H.I.G. Capital portfolio company, announced the acquisition of Blue Moon Beads (“Blue Moon”), one of the leading designers and suppliers of high quality jewelry-making products.

The acquisition of Blue Moon Beads allows DCWV to diversify its product offering and expand into a third design-driven product segment, alongside paper crafting and home décor. Mike Hill, CEO of DCWV, said, “We see this acquisition as a natural progression for the company as it further solidifies our position as an industry leader in design and innovation.” Mike added, “The acquisition underscores our commitment to diversifying our product offerings while maintaining the highest level of standards with regard to quality, functionality and aesthetics.”

“The Blue Moon acquisition shows DCWV’s commitment to leadership in the crafts industry,” commented Neil Tuch, Managing Director of H.I.G. Capital. “We looked past the parent company’s troubled balance sheet and found a company with innovative products, important customer relationships, a recognized brand, and strong, creative employees.”
