Altamont Capital Partners (Altamont) announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire DAKINE, an action sports and outdoor accessories and apparel company, from Billabong International Limited (Billabong).

DAKINE was founded in 1979 in Hawaii by Rob Kaplan and is based in Hood River, Oregon. The brand has developed a strong reputation as the action sports industry's leading provider of specialized backpacks, gloves, bags, and technical accessories.  An early pioneer in the wind surfing industry, DAKINE has expanded to serve the snowboard, ski, surf, skate, bike, and kite communities.

Commenting on the deal, Steve Brownlie, Principal at Altamont said: "DAKINE has a high quality brand, strong track record, and long history in the markets it serves – all of the qualities we look for in a consumer business.  There is a talented team at the company and we are excited to work with them to build on DAKINE's successful history and drive future growth opportunities."

The DAKINE acquisition is occurring concurrently with a recapitalization of Billabong led by Altamont and GSO Capital Partners.  Additional details regarding that transaction can be found in the Billabong press release "Refinancing of Syndicated Debt Facilities."
