Bruce Ogilvie, Chairman of Alliance, commented, “We are now well positioned to continue to execute strategic plans including investments in automating facilities and upgrading proprietary software, improvements which we believe will improve EBITDA and inventory turns. We believe that in combination with our cost-cutting initiatives and reduction in inventory due to improved management, lowering our cost of capital directly improves our competitiveness and increases our ability to deploy capital that drives accretive growth. We are delighted to have the support of White Oak, which shares our long-term vision for Alliance Entertainment with a focus on strategy, operational execution, and financial prudence."
