Strapped for financing, online bulk-products retailer Boxed said it's exploring a range of strategic options, including a possible sale of the company.
New York-based Boxed announced the plan Thursday and noted that the company also is “actively exploring capital-raising initiatives” and expects to unveil additional funding within the next 45 days. Investment banks cowen and Solomon Partners have been retained as financial advisers to help Boxed assess its strategic alternatives.
