Oil Field Services: Construction / Environmental Remediation
Engagement to sell a highly reputable oilfield service and maintenance company serving the California and Texas markets. The third generation owner joined the Company in 1973, growing the company organically, with one acquisition in 1996. The Company provides over 30 distinct services to its blue chip customer base including well maintenance and closure services. Management believes it is relatively insulated from the current oil price volatility currently occurring. In fact, the Company has experienced growth during periods of lower oil prices because it is a “one stop shop” for its clients which tend to seek alternative and more competitive vendors for critical services. Revenues exceed $USD150 million

Electric Vehicle Propulsion Technology / Manufacturing Company
Engagement to sell a privately held Company that has been an independent leader in electric drive propulsion systems for over 20 years. Its patented proprietary electric vehicle technology includes its drive system with integrated, bi-directional battery charger, power electronic unit and induction motor, its battery management system and separately, a vehicle management system. The Company was founded in the US and continues its research and development activities at its campus in California with a related company in Beijing responsible for all manufacturing as well as all marketing efforts in Asia.

Processed Cheese Manufacturing Company
Engagement to sell a large, well-equipped process cheese manufacturing company on the West Coast. This processed cheese manufacturing company is a division of a leading supplier of premium-quality natural cheese (“parent”). In 2010, the parent acquired the processed cheese business from a privately held company. This processed cheese division had the opportunity to become the leading processed cheese manufacturing company in the Western US for domestic and tariff-free export business.

Tire Manufacturer
Our client company is a major tire manufacturing company in Asia, with over $USD 400 million in revenue located in an economic development zone in Dongying, Shandong province, PRC. It was established in 2009 with a registered capital of 210 million RMB. It is a large, modern tire manufacturing company that focuses on truck/bus radial tires and is seeking a pre-IPO private investment in order to grow its passenger car (PCR) capacity and to continue to fund its off-the-road (OTR) tire manufacturing plans. The Company sells domestically and exports (to over 100 countries), and conducts R&D on various tire designs and new technologies. This private placement seeks $USD 90 million from an investor who can bring capital resources as well as marketing/manufacturing/financial management skills to the Company. This investment will result in a substantial minority ownership position in this firm. The Company is poised to grow in all segments of the passenger car, bus, truck and off-the-road vehicle tire markets. The Company will use this equity investment fully in the business, and plans an IPO exit within the next 4-5 years as its growth plans are achieved.
