Temple & Webster in capital raising


temple&websterOnline homewares and furniture retailer, Temple & Webster, is planning to sell a major stake in the business in a bid to boost revenue.

According to the Australian Financial Review, the owners of the subscription-based e-tailer hope the sale will attract a cash injection that will boost ­revenue to $150 million a year.

Founded in 2011 by Brian Shanahan, Conrad Yiu, Mark Coulter, and Adam McWhinney; Temple & Webster, which is also backed by Macquarie Capital, has become one of the top performing online-only homewares retailers in Australia, with revenue of $32 million forecast for fiscal year 2015 and more than 100,000 customers.
