FMI Capital Advisors is pleased to announce the sale of Drexel Metals, Inc., a portfolio company of Arborview Capital, to Carlisle Construction Materials (“CCM”), a $2 billion division of Carlisle Companies (NYSE: CSL). Drexel Metals is a leader in the architectural metal roofing segment serving both residential and commercial customers with annual revenue of approximately $50 million. FMI Capital Advisors acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Arborview Capital and Drexel Metals.
The transaction was led by Porter Wiley, Managing Director and head of FMI’s Building Products Group. FMI’s independent research team supported the transaction with a “staple” diligence package which included a custom market forecast and competitive analysis report.
“Porter and the FMI team did an outstanding job of preparing us to best articulate the strengths of the Company’s innovative business model”, said Karl Khoury, Arborview Partner and Drexel Chairman. “In addition, their knowledge of and relationships within the building products industry enabled them to introduce multiple interested parties to the process that we would not have thought to contact ourselves.” Arborview Capital, headquartered in Chevy Chase, Maryland, is a growth equity and venture capital firm that makes investments in impact-focused companies across the energy efficiency, resource efficiency and sustainability sectors.
Drexel is a market leader in the move to on-site fabrication of roofing panels using mobile roll-forming machines. The company also provides custom trim and cornice fabrication, edge metal, underlayment and insulation products. “We are now excited about being part of the CCM family of products,” said Brian Partyka, President of Drexel Metals.
