Industrial Products and Services Firm MEGTEC

May 14, 2014 - Stamford, CT

Hamilton Robinson Capital Partners (HRCP) announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement to sell industrial processes solutions provider MEGTEC based on an enterprise value of $155 million, subject to adjustment for MEGTEC's cash and indebtedness and certain other closing items to The Babcock & Wilcox Company subsidiary, Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc.

MEGTEC has operated as a stand-alone business since HRCP, along with management and Stephens Capital Partners, acquired the company in September 2008. As an independent company, MEGTEC leveraged a well-rounded management team to become a technological leader of air pollution control and advanced-process equipment for the industrial and energy storage markets.

We also believe this transaction validates our longstanding belief that investing in American manufacturers of highly technical products and services continues to be extremely attractive."

William Blair & Company, LLC and Stephens, Inc. acted as exclusive financial advisors to MEGTEC Holdings, Inc. on the transaction. Baker & McKenzie LLP provided legal counsel.
