American Pacific Group (APG) announced it has acquired Fellers Inc., a vehicle wrap supplier, with Bridgepoint Investment Banking (Bridgepoint) acting as the exclusive financial advisor to Fellers on the sale.
APG partnered with financing sources Platinum Equity and Angelo Gordon to complete the transaction.
Fellers is a distributor of vehicle wrap products, and it distributes vinyl and sign supplies in the U.S.
Fellers CEO, Tom Brophy, will remain with the company in his current capacity.
“Despite being faced with numerous business, market and regulatory hurdles during the process, Bridgepoint effectively navigated every challenge with a professional, calm and honest approach and delivered an outstanding outcome to Frank Fellers and the Fellers management team,” said Brophy. “The highly competitive process run by Bridgepoint led to a market-clearing valuation and found us the right partner in APG. We are very excited to be partnering with the team at APG – they are consummate professionals who can help Fellers achieve its long-term growth objectives.”
In addition to serving as exclusive financial advisor to Fellers, Bridgepoint introduced the buyer to the financing partners that helped consummate the transaction.
“Frank Fellers is truly a visionary – his hard work and determination took Fellers from a one-location operation in his garage to the largest wrap supply company in the world with 58 locations in the U.S.," said Bryan Wallace, Bridgepoint managing director. "We are proud to have partnered with Frank Fellers, Tom Brophy and the entire Fellers management team to find them the right partner and we are excited to see what’s in store for the Fellers and APG teams.”
