Bundy Group Announces Acquisition of Engineered Steel Products, Inc. by New Page Capital

GREENSBORO, N.C., January 28, 2015 – Bundy Group, an investment bank with offices in Roanoke, Virginia, and Charlotte, North Carolina, is pleased to announce the sale of Engineered Steel Products, Inc. (“Engineered Steel Products” or the “Company”), a Sophia, North Carolina-headquartered structural steel manufacturing company. Engineered Steel Products was acquired by New Page Capital (“New Page”), a Greensboro, North Carolina-based private equity group focused on investing in privately held companies in the Piedmont Triad region. Bundy Group served as exclusive advisor to Engineered Steel Products and its shareholders in the sale process. The Forrest Firm, based out of the Raleigh-Durham area, served as legal counsel for the Company during the course of the transaction.

With New Page Capital, Engineered Steel Products establishes a clear succession plan for the future. While co-founders Rob Braswell and Richard Flournoy will continue to hold executive roles, effectively immediately, Rick Ramsey is the new president of Engineered Steel Products. A Darden School of Business M.B.A., Ramsey previously worked with Gilbarco Veeder-Root, a global industrial manufacturer; he continues to serve as operating partner with New Page Capital.

“New Page Capital is a top notch, high-energy team with exceptional management and industry prowess,” said Rob Braswell, former president of Engineered Steel Products. “Rick and his colleagues have strong local ties and the resources and expertise to enhance our future success.”

“With a 25-year track record of providing high quality steel products and impeccable service, Engineered Steel Products holds great promise for future growth,” added Ramsey.

“After performing due diligence on over a hundred potential investment and partnership opportunities, we are excited to forge this new path forward,” commented Adam Duggins, managing partner of New Page Capital.

This is the first major investment deal for New Page Capital, which formed in 2014 to create lasting value by re-energizing Piedmont Triad region companies with revenue between $5 – 35 million, stable cash flows, and sustainable competitive positions. The firm is actively seeking additional investment opportunities.
