PE Profit Ladder Market Watch Newsletter: Two Roark-Backed Fitness Giants Plan to Merge

Orangetheory and Self Esteem Brands - both already backed by Roark Capital - announced their intent to merge. Once the deal closes, this will create one of the largest fitness and wellness platforms, with a combined $3.5 billion in systemwide sales, and 7,000 locations across 50 countries.

It is a potential set-up to take the larger platform public, possibly in 2025.
