ShoreView Announces Sale of Niagara Thermal Products LLC

January 2016

ShoreView is pleased to announce the successful sale of Niagara Thermal Products LLC (“NTP”) to Aavid Thermalloy, LLC. ShoreView partnered with NTP through a leveraged recapitalization in April 2008.

Prior to ShoreView’s investment, the institutional owners of NTP were seeking liquidity on their investments, and the management owners were seeking a strong financial partner to pursue significant growth opportunities. ShoreView structured a transaction that:

• Provided liquidity to NTP’s institutional owners

• Allowed management to retain day-to-day operating control of the business

• Structured a meaningful retained ownership position to the management owners

• Created an ownership incentive plan for key managers

The results of this partnership were excellent as ShoreView and NTP management completed two complimentary add-on acquisitions, expanded NTP’s product lines, and added key managers to the team. As a result, the company’s sales more than doubled during ShoreView’s ownership period.
