In 2016 HSJ generated revenue of £10m and EBITDA of £2.8m.

Its gross assets at June 2016 were £12.8m including intangibles.

Chief executive Duncan Painter said: "This is the first key milestone in finding the right future home for our Heritage Brands and highlights the attraction of these brands to new owners. HSJ is recognised as a market leader in its sector and I have confidence that Wilmington will provide the right environment for its continued success."
