Deni Caplan, a Principal in the firm's Corporate Group, and Ross Friedman, an Associate in the Corporate Group, represented American Roller Company, LLC in connection with a recapitalization of its business with Hamilton Robinson Capital Partners (HRCP) and a spinoff of one of its divisions.
American Roller is a leading provider of engineered services and industrial rollers including rubber and urethane coverings, plasma coatings, and core fabrication.
The recapitalization transaction represented a liquidity event for investors 17 years after Goldberg Kohn represented CM Acquisitions, L.LC., as equity sponsor in the initial acquisition. Over the years since the initial acquisition, Goldberg Kohn has represented CM and American Roller in a number of add-on acquisitions that build on the platform investment.
“This substantial investment will allow American Roller to build upon its strong foundation by providing it with additional resources to increase its responsiveness to customers and accelerate its growth plans. It also provides the additional capital to pursue add-on acquisitions that will leverage our broad infrastructure and help us expand into new markets," American Roller CEO, Dan Cahalane stated.
