Matrix Announces the Successful Recapitalization of Stalcop LP
RICHMOND, VA – April 27, 2010 – Matrix Capital Markets Group, Inc. announced today that it has successfully completed the recapitalization of Stalcop LP by Alpha Capital Partners, a private equity firm based in Chicago, IL.
Stalcop, headquartered in Thorntown, IN and with additional manufacturing facilities in Germany and the Czech Republic, first opened its doors in 1981. As a leading manufacturer of custom designed cold formed and precision machined components and sub-assemblies, the company serves a variety of end markets, including the power semiconductor, automotive, power transmission & distribution, heavy duty truck, specialty battery, ordinance and ammunition markets. The recapitalization with Alpha Capital will serve to strengthen the company’s position as a leading cold forming specialist and will better position Stalcop for future growth.
“We are very pleased with Alpha Capital’s investment in Stalcop, which will provide capital for a balance sheet recapitalization and growth capital to seize market opportunities in 2010,” said Ron St. Clair, President and CEO of Stalcop. “We are also very pleased with the advisory services provided by Matrix. They spent the time to really learn our business and provided us with solid advice in a difficult environment for raising capital. Once our capital objectives were quantified, Matrix identified potential investors and then worked tirelessly to help negotiate a transaction that met the objectives of both Stalcop and Alpha Capital.”
Matrix served as the exclusive financial advisor to Stalcop. The transaction was managed by Bill Weirich, Managing Director, Bryan Johnson, Vice President, and Chris Menasco, Associate. Bill Weirich added, “We have known Ron St. Clair for over ten years, dating back to when Stalcop was a potential buyer in another transaction. It was a pleasure to work with Ron and his team again on this recapitalization of Stalcop, which will allow the company to execute on its current and future growth initiatives.”
