Transaction Dynamics
  • The founders had transitioned from the business before the transaction and managed from abroad
  • Seaside partnered with the management team to acquire the equity interest of the founders in September of 2018
  • Seaside provided a comprehensive solution for the founder and management team to transition ownership while maintaining the team, culture, and strategy
Executing the Strategy

With the support of Seaside, management executed a growth-oriented value creation playbook:

  • Expanded product offering through product extensions and new category development
  • Drove volume growth by expanding geographically, introducing new products, and investing in additional production capacity
  • Accelerated top-line and profitability growth by implementing a new pricing strategy, investing in new equipment, and optimizing sourcing and supply chain
  • Pursued and executed on an add-on acquisition
  • Upgraded the ERP system, reporting capabilities, and tax strategies
  • Expanded the management team by adding new positions including a new CFO, head of marketing, head of sales, and head of supply chain
Delivering Results
  • Entered two new product categories
  • Grew customer count by 30%
  • Grew international operations in Europe and the Middle East
  • Materially grew revenue and EBITDA

Given the strong growth and level of value creation under Seaside’s ownership, the Company sold to Oldcastle APG, a CRH Company (NYSE: CRH), one of the largest building materials businesses in North America and Europe, in November 2021.
