SC&H Capital served as the exclusive financial advisor to Bowles Fluidics Corporation in its acquisition by Morgenthaler Private Equity (MPE), a leading manufacture investment firm with approximately $3 billion of equity under management. MPE focuses on family and founder-owned lower middle market companies in high value manufacturing and proprietary business services.
Bowles Fluidics Corporation had been majority-owned by one family for over 50 years. As a result of diverse investment objectives of multi-generational owners, the family decided to sell the business. The Board of Directors selected SC&H Capital as their M&A advisor to offer expertise and guidance throughout this sell side transaction.
SC&H Capital contacted a highly targeted list of buyers approved by management, and evaluated multiple highly-competitive offers. The Board selected MPE to partner with the existing management team; MPE would preserve the culture of the company and maintain its presence as a Maryland manufacturer.
As stated by Matthew Roberson, a Principal with SC&H, “The sale to MPE will allow Bowles to accelerate growth initiatives while reinforcing the Company’s deep commitment to providing the highest levels of product quality, innovation, and service.”
