Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC advised Consolidated Systems, Inc. in three recent deals
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Mar. 24, 2016 — Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC (DCF) acted as exclusive financial advisor to South Carolina-based Consolidated Systems, Inc. (CSi) in three recent sell-side transactions, including asset divestitures to Steel Dynamics, Inc., a major metal coatings company, and a large steel service center.
The fourth largest manufacturer of bridge/roof decking in the United States, CSi closed the sale of its steel decking assets to Steel Dynamics, Inc. on Sept. 14, 2015. CSi’s satisfaction with that transaction led CSi to engage DCF for two additional transactions that both closed on Dec. 15, 2015: The sale of coil coating and processing assets from CSi business unit Consolidated Metal Products to a metal coating company for operation as a toll processing facility and the sale of other assets to a steel service center and distributor expanding its business in the Southeast.
“Deloitte Corporate Finance did an excellent job of helping us navigate the complicated process of selling three groups of assets so quickly, with two of those deals closing simultaneously. We would not have been able to execute these transactions without the insight DCF was able to provide,” said Tony Hardwick, member of the Board of Directors at CSi.
“Working with CSi’s shareholders and board through each of these deals has been rewarding. Each buyer that acquired assets from CSi has a reputation for operational excellence and, through strong collaboration with CSi leaders, executed the deals well,” said Brad Winer, Industrials group managing director at Deloitte Corporate Finance.
