Founded in 1972 and based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Barrett-Jackson is the leading provider of event-based auctions for classic and collector cars. Featuring a wide variety of world-class automobiles, the Company’s auctions attract hundreds of thousands of automobile collectors and enthusiasts each year. Barrett-Jackson currently holds four main annual auction events in Scottsdale, AZ, Las Vegas, NV, Palm Beach, FL and Houston, TX. The Scottsdale event has grown to be the largest single collector car auction event in the world with over 1,000 cars sold each year. The Company has also pioneered the live broadcasting of collector car auctions on national television.
Endeavour partnered with Craig Jackson and his management team in 2007 to provide existing shareholders with liquidity and to continue to grow the Barrett-Jackson franchise. No debt was used to finance the transaction in order to provide room for growth. During the period of Endeavour’s investment, the Company added two additional annual events, grew its branded products and licensing revenue streams, and further professionalized its infrastructure. Endeavour exited in June of 2016.
