Cyprium Partners exits investment in Alpha Sintered Metals
Private equity firm Cyprium Partners has exited from its investment in Alpha Sintered Metals (ASM), through a sale of the company to management and O2 Investment Partners.
Headquartered in Ridgway, Pennsylvania, ASM is a manufacturer of high-precision powder metal components for the automotive, small engine, recreational vehicle, lawn and garden, commercial vehicle and agricultural equipment industries.
In addition to its original subordinated debt and equity position, Cyprium invested additional capital in ASM to allow the company to establish off-shore manufacturing operations as well as to facilitate the acquisition of a competitor in the stainless steel exhaust and turbocharger components market.
“ASM has been a prime example of the type of initiatives we pursue with our portfolio companies,” says Leland Lewis, a managing partner at Cyprium. “We team with management to assist with organic growth, acquisitions and operational improvements in order to position our companies to withstand a changing marketplace and to take advantage of growth opportunities. We wish the ASM team much success as they start the next chapter in the company’s history.”
Stout Risius Ross (SRR) was retained by Cyprium and the company to lead the ASM sale process.
