Lee Partners LP, in an estimated $550 million deal. How did a seemingly healthy, valuable and beloved company go so wrong so fast? After its 2017 acquisition, Thomas H. Lee set an aggressive strategy to open 200 more stores and double revenue to $2 billion by 2020. But being saddled with roughly $400 million in debt and no financial cushion to respond to the disruption of changing furniture habits left Art Van's business model sitting on a tinderbox.
