CSG Partner raises capital to finance Ambertek's Acquisition of SS Equipment Services, LLC
New York, NY - November 29th, 2012:
CSG Partners, LLC, the New York-based boutique investment bank, is pleased to announce that we served as the exclusive financial advisor to Ambertek, LLC, raising senior debt financing to finance Ambertek's acquisition of SS Equipment Services ("SSE"), LLC. SSE is headquartered in Cotulla, TX and is a leading oil field services company, focused on providing critical pre- and post- drilling construction services to many oil and gas exploration and production firms in the Eagle Ford Shale region of Texas.
"CSG Partners is proud to have worked with The Ambertek Group to help finance this acquisition" said Alex Meshechok a Managing Director at CSG Partners. "This is an exciting opportunity for Rick Pfeiffer and Brian Maloy, the principals of Ambertek, to partner with the existing owners of SSE and to bring their extensive business experience to bear to help drive SSE's future growth. The debt portion of the transaction was financed by White Oak Global Advisors, LLC and we are grateful to Scott Johnston and his team for their flexibility and responsiveness in making this deal happen". Eitan Milstein, who co-led the assignment for CSG added "We were fortunate to have worked with the highly- qualified and experienced management team of Ambertek. Under the current economic conditions, obtaining an attractive and flexible acquisition facility can be challenging, yet we were successful in securing a creatively structured loan that allowed Ambertek to successfully close an important and attractive acquisition".
"The transaction structured by CSG Partners was an excellent alternative to other, more limited options available to us," commented Richard Pfeiffer, President and CEO of Ambertek. "We were very fortunate to have the CSG Partners' team lead us through the process. Their level of expertise, experience, professionalism, and responsiveness to our needs was absolutely outstanding," added Mr. Brian Maloy, the Company's CFO. "This transaction helped us conclude an attractive and important acquisition. We were very pleased with CSG's guidance, and with the financing facility CSG helped us secure under favorable terms."
This followed another recent transaction CSG Partners completed in the oil and gas industry for Martin Resource Management Corporation, which involved an ESOP purchasing a minority interest in the company for $230 million.
