Transaction Overview

The owner of Insulations wished to create liquidity to diversify his wealth, reduce personal financial risk, and identify a capital partner to unlock certain growth opportunities. The owner also wished to provide ownership to key managers and begin developing a succession plan. KLH structured an investment that gave the owner partial liquidity for diversification, offered equity to key managers, and established a capital structure that removed personal guarantees and provided capacity for growth.
