Could Bigelow architect an engagement to find and partner with an investor who would fully appreciate and build upon Swenson's leading brands, unique products, and differentiated vertically-integrated strategy AND sustain the family legacy of recognized industry leader?
Unique Challenges Swenson and Rock of Ages served a diverse set of end markets with wide geographic disparity, with customers ranging from the local landscaping contractor to the international building architect / owner. Recognizing that Swenson is one of the largest companies in a highly-fragmented universe of dimensional stone producers, Bigelow negotiated a full-liquidity merger with Quebec-based Polycor, Inc., a leading international marketer of a wide range of finished marble, travertine, tile and granite products. The transaction was enabled by institutional equity provided by TorQuest Partners, a private equity firm headquartered in Toronto, and PNC Mezzanine, a subordinated debt and junior capital provider based out of Pittsburg, PA, along with a debt consortium led by the Bank of Montreal. Swenson's expert management team remains in place, while the Swenson family achieved its capstone event and moves on to their next chapter. "I think the most critical service provided by Bigelow to us during the process was their extremely important work in initially positioning our company for sale by showing us what we needed to do beyond business as usual to demonstrate to buyers we were on an achievable path to dramatically grow earnings. Their very hard work and never ending diligence in managing the sale process, brought us a result far better than we expected when we started down the path." Kurt M. Swenson, Fourth Generation Family Owner and Chairman of the Board Swenson Granite Company, LLC "In an extremely complex transaction that required close management of multiple work-streams, Bigelow never lost sight of the most important things to bring this to a successful close. Bigelow was able to achieve the highest value for Swenson's shareholders, while ensuring that the Swenson family's 130-year legacy would be honored and preserved.
