SBP Holdings Completes Refinancing Transaction

Posted on October 15, 2020


SBP Holding L.P. (“SBP” or the “Company”), a leading industrial distribution platform offering a diverse portfolio of highly engineered products and services to a broad range of customers and end markets, together with certain of its subsidiaries, is pleased to announce that it has completed a refinancing transaction co-led by Atlantic Park Strategic Capital Fund, L.P. (“Atlantic Park”) and The Carlyle Group’s Global Credit platform (“Carlyle”). Carlyle acted as administrative agent. Concurrent with the closing of the transaction, the Company also extended the maturity of its existing revolving credit facility to October 2025. Proceeds from the transaction will be used to fully refinance the Company’s existing indebtedness and provide the Company with capital to support future growth and acquisitions.

The Company was formed in 2012 in conjunction with Singer Equities’ acquisition of Bishop Lifting Products. Since 2012, SBP has completed over 25 acquisitions and has transformed into a national platform.

“We’re extremely excited to partner with Atlantic Park and Carlyle during this next chapter of growth,” said Michael Geist, Chief Financial Officer. “The facility supports our strong balance sheet and financial position. Importantly, the structure also provides additional flexibility and, with the further support of our majority owner AEA Investors, enables SBP to be well-positioned to continue executing our growth strategies as global economies recover.”

Jefferies LLC acted as sole financial advisor to SBP and Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP as its legal advisor. Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP and Kirkland & Ellis LLP served as legal advisors to Atlantic Park and Carlyle, respectively.
