Project Information

Modella Capital are pleased to announce that alongside, specialist asset-based lender, Secure Trust Bank Commercial Finance (“STB CF”), we have provided a £25m secured asset-based facility to No Ordinary Designer Label Limited (“NODL”), part of the AARC Group, the licensee of the UK and European operations for the distinctive British lifestyle brand, Ted Baker.

The facility will assist the business by providing a platform for the growth of Ted Baker’s UK and European retail operations under the AARC Group, who acquired the licence earlier this year.

Founded in 1988 in Glasgow, Ted Baker is available in 191 freestanding stores, shop-in-shops, and outlets in 49 countries worldwide. In October 2022, Ted Baker was acquired by Authentic Brands Group (“Authentic”) for £211m.

Authentic will continue to support the business and management team, while the new funding will allow AARC Group to  stabilise the operations of NODL and focus on growth.
