Stonebridge Partners is pleased to announce the successful growth equity recapitalization of Safety Infrastructure Solutions (“SIS” or the “Company”) in partnership with its founders, management team and other equity investors. Earnings have nearly tripled since Stonebridge’s initial investment, resulting in over a 3.6x gross cash-on-cash return. Importantly, the transaction not only provided liquidity to Stonebridge’s investors, it also provided substantial new equity capital for accelerated growth at SIS. The transaction closed in March 2017.
SIS and its subsidiaries rent and sell various safety products to industrial contractors that operate in the underground construction and repair project space for roads and highways, pipelines, industrial plants, water works and airports, as well as a host of other construction and repair applications. SIS operates from approximately 25 locations across the continental United States.
Stonebridge Managing Partner, Mike Bruno, stated “SIS has been a wonderful investment for the firm and our investors. It is led by vibrant and dynamic management team who have a proven greenfield growth model. We are pleased to have provided a significant return while simultaneously infusing new equity capital into the business to accelerate growth. We continue to be excited about the very favorable prospects for the business and working closely with the management team and equity partners.
