JW Hill Capital’s Acquisition of Bandy Manufacturing from GKN Aerospace

JW Hill Capital’s Acquisition of Bandy Manufacturing from GKN Aerospace

A Joint Event With ACG San Diego

San Diego Chapter meeting on November 21

Independent Sponsors are a growing class of private equity firms that, unlike traditional firms with committed capital, choose to source capital on a deal-by-deal basis. JW Hill Capital, a Newport Beach-based private equity firm, is an Independent Sponsor that recently completed the acquisition of Burbank, California-based Bandy Manufacturing from GKN Aerospace. This deal, a cross-border divestiture from a major European strategic that went through a competitive auction process, is an example of how Independent Sponsors are successfully executing complex transactions.

Join us in Solana Beach, CA, on Tuesday, Nov 21, 7:00–9:00am, when our panel will examine questions such as: What does the Independent Sponsor trend mean for sellers, investors, and operators? How does an Independent Sponsor transaction differ from other buyers and what does that mean for sellers? How was JW Hill Capital, a relatively new firm, able accomplish this transaction? Do we expect to see more divestitures in the near-term as larger companies reshape their portfolios?

Panelists: John Hill (Managing Partner, JW Hill Capital), Neal Nordstrom (Operating Partner, JW Hill Capital), Paul Weisbrich (Managing Director, DA Davidson), Steve Alexander (General Manager, Bandy Manufacturing) and Moderator Ed Lake(CFO Merlin Global Services & A&D Forum, San Diego Chapter Chair)
