Joseph Enterprises, Inc. (“JEI”) and Joseph Pedott Advertising and Marketing, Inc. (“JPAM”) are integrated consumer products and marketing companies which design, market and distribute novelty, home and garden products through drug, mass, home, hardware and direct retail channels throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe. JEI is best known for the development of Chia Pet® and The Clapper® into consumer icons.
Joseph Pedott founded the organization as an advertising agency more than 65 years ago while still in college. Through hard work, dedication and perseverance, he built a platform which specializes in marketing and selling consumer products. After a long and storied career selling more than 25 million Chia Pets and 7 million Clappers he hired G2 Capital Advisors (“G2”) to find a partner who would embrace his legacy and maintain the Company’s culture he spent his professional life building.
G2 served as the exclusive sell-side advisor to JEI / JPAM, responsible for running a robust, hands-on sale process, which ultimately resulted in a sale to NECA.
The transaction was successfully executed through a sale to NECA, a leading creator and global distributor of licensed consumer products based on some of the world’s most recognized movies, video games, comic books, and pop culture.
