HOUSTON, TEXAS (July 14, 2021) – Statesman Corporate Finance, LLC (“Statesman”) is pleased to announce that Mid-Atlantic Roofing Supply, Inc. (“Mid-Atlantic”) has officially joined the Atlantic Squared family of brands (“Atlantic Squared”). The transaction that funded the acquisition was partially financed through a $140,000,000 senior credit facility consisting of a term loan facility from TCW Asset Management Company LLC (“TCW”) and a revolving line of credit from PNC Bank, N.A. (“PNC”). Statesman and FocalPoint Securities, LLC (“FocalPoint”) served as the exclusive financial advisors to the leaders of Atlantic Squared throughout the transaction, which closed May 28, 2021.
“Tim Perryman, President and CEO of Atlantic Squared, commented, “I first met Dave Sargent in 2006 when he helped lead the Roofing Supply Group (RSG) recapitalization. Dave and his team brought in Michael Brill and his FocalPoint team to co-advise on the financing, and Brian Sipes and his team at Kroll to complete the needed quality of earnings work. Without Dave’s leadership and network of advisors, along with the team’s professional and personal skills, this deal never would have happened.”“Tim and his team have done an amazing job in building Atlantic Squared’s original member Carolina Atlantic to the size it is today in less than three years, and the Mid-Atlantic acquisition is a perfect fit for Tim’s long growth strategy,” added David Sargent, Senior Advisor at Statesman.
