Corro-Shield International, Inc.

"Business transition to new ownership"

The founders of Corro-Shield International, Inc., a Chicago, Illinois based manufacturer of industrial coatings and flooring, were looking for a succession plan that allowed them to continue in an active role during transition to new ownership. Distinct Capital was engaged by the Canadian purchasers of the Company to advise and assist in arranging financing which included a combination of equity and senior bank loans.  Following the successful completion of the transaction, Distinct Capital played an ongoing role as financial  advisor to the expanded senior management team.

"Business transition to next generation management"

When the founder of Starline, a family owned and operated business supplying equipment to the Canadian film production industry, decided to retire, Distinct Capital was engaged to assess all viable options for the sale of the Company. After analyzing a number of alternatives it was determined that the most attractive solution for the seller was a management buyout including several next generation family members.

"Without Distinct Capital’s experience and in-depth understanding of both the Company and my personal objectives the transaction would not have been successful"
