Close Date:

Connecticut Warehouse Distributors, Inc. (“CWD”) is a leading distributor of aftermarket automotive parts. CWD has established itself as the largest distributor of Motorcraft and AC Delco products in the New England region.

Matrix was retained by CWD to pursue a 100% sale of the business with the goal of achieving a liquidity event and to provide wealth diversification for the Company’s shareholders.

Matrix clearly articulated CWD’s investment thesis to a broad universe of strategic and financial buyers that possessed an understanding of the industry and/or had experience with similar businesses.

Working closely with management, Matrix analyzed and evaluated a range of offers from interested buyers that tended to be based off of either a cash flow multiple or the assets of the business.

Completed a sale to a strategic buyer at a premium valuation relative to CWD’s assets.
