Tommie Copper Holdings, Inc., the original innovator and first-mover in the new category of copper-infused performance apparel, announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Tengram Capital Partners ("Tengram"), a private equity firm that focuses on investments in middle-market branded consumer and retail companies. Tengram's investment will enable the Company to build on the significant momentum that the Tommie Copper brand has gained in the marketplace, and will provide the Company with the resources necessary to fund its future expansion.
 
Founded in 2010, Tommie Copper is the original, copper-rich apparel and accessories brand, dedicated to enhancing and promoting wellness, performance and recovery. The Company's copper and zinc-infused products are a natural solution for increasing performance during sports, work and everyday activities. Tommie Copper products are the next evolution in performance apparel, empowering individuals to live a more positive life and achieve balance in heart, mind, body, and soul.
 
Since its founding, the Company has developed a significant e-commerce consumer base, supported by an active television and social media presence.
 
"Tengram Capital Partners and Tommie Copper are a perfect fit as both organizations share the perspective that a combination of brand leadership and evolving technology are a winning recipe," said Tom Kallish, Founder and Chairman of the Company.  
 
William Sweedler, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Tengram said, "We have been extremely impressed by the success that Tom, Malcolm, Sol and the entire management team have achieved with the Tommie Copper brand in a relatively short period of time. The Company has developed an extremely loyal customer base with powerful testimonials on the efficacy of the product. We are excited to partner with the Company and provide the capital to drive the Company's continued growth in new product categories and distribution channels that we know well."
