DALLAS, August 28, 2020 - Generational Equity, a leading mergers and acquisitions advisor for privately held businesses, is pleased to announce the sale of its client, Specialty CNC, Inc. to Consolidated Machine & Tool Holdings, LLC (“CMTH”), a portfolio company of White Wolf Capital, LLC (“White Wolf Capital”). CMTH is a platform holding company formed in 2017 by White Wolf Capital to acquire industry leading manufacturers specializing in precision machining, fabrication, assembly, and design of highly engineered components. The acquisition closed August 14, 2020 and details were not disclosed.

Located in Bloomington, Indiana, Specialty CNC has over 50 years of experience in the machining, fabricating, and mold making business. The Company designs and fabricates custom metal, plastic, and precision parts for a variety of industries including the medical, dental, automotive, aerospace, and government. Specialty CNC utilizes the latest technology in the prototype, production, and manufacturing process, working one-on-one with customers to design and fabricate products to strict specifications and parameters.

White Wolf Capital, located in Miami, Florida, is a private equity firm founded in late 2011 with a focus on making control-investments in leading middle market companies. They are operationally focused, long-term value investors, and create significant value through capital structure optimization and investments in growth, both organic and through add-on acquisitions. The White Wolf Capital acquisition team was led by Managing Director Elie Azar, Managing Director Rich Leggio II, and Vice President Andres Gutierrez.

Generational Equity Managing Director Don Ho was the dealmaker that successfully closed the transaction. “I am so excited to be able to complete a second transaction with White Wolf Capital. This buyer was our number one pick before we even began our marketing campaign given their excellent reputation and my experience with them on another transaction. White Wolf Capital continues to impress me with their excellence. The speed of this transaction was a new record at my firm and for White Wolf Capital since we closed this deal from the beginning of marketing, through due diligence to a successful close in 27 business days. My clients are ecstatic to be a part of the CMTH and the White Wolf Capital team. It has been an honor and pleasure to represent Specialty CNC, and it was such a phenomenal and enjoyable experience working with White Wolf Capital again,” said Ho.

Generational Equity Vice President Jacob Mangalath was the supporting dealmaker on the transaction. “From the very first call, Specialty CNC just clicked with the CMTH and the White Wolf Capital team, and we knew that this was meant to be. The extreme level of dedication and commitment demonstrated on both sides enabled this deal to close in such a short time. I’m so glad that the trust that our clients placed in us allowed them to achieve and surpass their goals faster than they thought was possible.” said Mangalath.

Both Mr. Ho and Mr. Mangalath are dealmakers in Executive Managing Director Michael Goss’ Transaction Group. Chief Revenue and Strategy Officer Terry Johnson and Senior Managing Director David Robinson, established the initial relationship with Specialty CNC and brought them on board as a client.

Specialty CNC President Mike Baker stated, “This transaction closed much faster than we could have ever expected. We now have an appreciation for the complexity and tireless effort it takes to sell a business. Don and the legal team he assembled during the process was invaluable. We are very thankful for his efforts and would not hesitate to recommend the important service that Don Ho and Generational Equity provide to business owners.”

White Wolf Capital Managing Director Elie Azar Stated, “As always, it was an absolute pleasure working with Don Ho and the team at Generational Equity. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity and look forward to our new partnership with the talented team at Specialty CNC”.

Mr. Ho added, “This transaction was papered in record time due to the impressive work and dedication of our legal team lead by Blaine Statham, Partner, Brandon McCoy, Associate, and Courtney Chouinard, Associate, at Haynes & Boone, as well as the from the hard work of CMTH’s and White Wolf Capital’s legal team of Ice Miller. I really appreciate the late nights and weekends both law firms made to get us to a successful close.”
