Frontier acted as the exclusive strategic and financial advisor to, and assisted with the negotiations as a representative of, A Leading Specialty Hauler of Hazardous Materials in initiating and consummating the transaction.
Frontier represented an outside management team (the “Management Team”) with substantial experience and success in managing and growing specialty niche carriers in the trucking industry.
The Management Team identified a target company with a strong niche leadership position, high operating margins and excellent continued growth prospects, but with customer concentration and other issues relating to the several niches the company served. Frontier successfully negotiated an exclusive Letter of Intent to acquire the company on favorable terms, developed strong interest from multiple equity sponsors, and assisted the Management Team in selecting the sponsor that best matched their own objectives.
Frontier served as advisor in assisting the Management Team in obtaining $12 million in equity and $39 million in senior and subordinated debt from Jefferies Capital Partners and other capital partners, as well as worked with all of the parties involved in the acquisition toward the accomplishment of a successful closing.
