Westport, CT, November 2, 2021 – Full Sail IP Partners, an acquiror of leading brands, has
acquired the Weatherbeater® brand from Transform SR Brands LLC (“Transformco”).

For more than 50 years people trusted Weatherbeater® paint and stain to protect their largest
investment, their homes. At its height, Weatherbeater® offered more than 1,200 colors for
use on front doors, siding, trim and shutters. Weatherbeater® paints included innovations
such as one coat coverage, mildew & chalk resistance and superior durability that resisted
peeling, cracking and fading, earning the brand a strong following of loyalists.

“We’re thrilled to acquire Weatherbeater, with its long history of innovation, high levels of
brand awareness and reputation for great products. We look forward to providing a broad
range of products to improve the look and lengthen the life of homes from coast to coast and
in all climates,” said Alan Kravetz, Full Sail’s CEO.
The acquisition of Weatherbeater marks the second acquisition for Full Sail, following the
company’s first acquisition of the Odwalla brand from the Coca-Cola Company, announced in
September 2021.

Transformco has a large portfolio of brands that it intends to activate through product
development, licensing and, where applicable, through outright sale. The company’s brand
portfolio includes Kenmore and DieHard (as a licensee), as well as house brands within the
appliance, tool, grill, floor care, apparel, footwear and home categories.
