Plaisance Begins Acquisition Assignment for Leading Industrial Company

PLAISANCE ADVISORS TO ASSIST INDUSTRY LEADER IN EXPLORING ACQUISITION OPPORTUNITIES

January 2014

Plaisance Advisors is pleased to announce that it has recently been retained by a leading US manufacturing company to conduct a search for acquisition candidates that will enable the client to expand in the industry it has been serving for over 25 years. In executing this acquisition advisory assignment, Plaisance Advisors will be helping the client grow in a business where it is a significant player in its traditional markets. Moreover, since this client's industry is mature yet highly fragmented, management believes that implementing its best practices with other industry participants will result in increased product quality, customer service, and market penetration.

"This assignment highlights our experience with industrial businesses and in particular, companies that fall below the radar of larger advisors. We look forward to helping the client complete a transaction that enhances shareholder value in such an important and global business," said John Waller, a Managing Director at Plaisance. He added, "The client's stellar reputation, engineering resources, and customer responsiveness provides it with a strong base from which to expand."
