Sun Capital Partners affiliate to sell SOS Security
An affiliate of Sun Capital Partners, a private investment firm specialising in leveraged buyouts and investments in market-leading companies, is to sell SOS Security (SOS), a provider of outsourced security services and solutions. Terms of the private transaction have not been disclosed.
SOS specialises in providing security and protection services to clients across a wide range of industries such as financial services, retail, technology and communications, real estate and property management, hospitality and entertainment, and government. The Company has offices in approximately 70 cities across the US and has carried out security work in more than 80 countries.
“We recognised the significant potential in SOS as a global security platform, and from day one we applied our operations expertise to help the Company reach its potential,” says Marc Leder, Co-CEO of Sun Capital. “We equipped SOS with the tools they needed to scale efficiently, and the support and resources to execute the plan.”
Under the Sun affiliate’s ownership, SOS successfully completed three strategic add-on acquisitions, expanding operations in the Northeast and on the West Coast.
“I’ve had a great relationship with Sun Capital,” says Edward Silverman, Founder and CEO of SOS. “Their operational knowledge, dedication and understanding of my objectives as a founder made them an ideal partner.”
“SOS is a great example of how Sun Capital partners with founder-owned businesses and provides them with resources that take them to the next level,” adds Daniel Florian, Managing Director at Sun Capital. “Eddie and his executive team have been fantastic partners, and SOS is now better positioned than ever for its next phase of growth.”
Sun Capital has strong experience acquiring and building founder-owned businesses such as Horizon Services, Admiral Petroleum Company & Lemmen Oil Company, and Demilec Inc.
