Lincolnshire Management Invests in Powerhouse and Two Related Companies

to Create the Leading National Provider of Outsourced Refresh, Remodel and Facilities Maintenance Services

 

NEW YORK ‒ October, 15, 2019 ‒ In a trifecta of acquisitions, Lincolnshire Management Inc. today announced it has invested in Powerhouse as well as in two complementary, outsourced business services companies, creating a leading national platform company providing refresh, remodel and facilities maintenance services to a roster of blue-chip customers nationwide.  The combined company will be an asset light provider of these services for large scale, multi-site projects.  Financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.

 

Simultaneous with completing the investment in Powerhouse, a leading nationwide provider of high-volume, multi-site rollouts, refresh, and recurring facilities maintenance services, Lincolnshire Management also invested in Security Vault Works, Inc. which included a highly complementary add-on One Source Security & Sound (collectively, “SVW”).  SVW is the nation’s largest provider of full-service installations of self-service kiosks and automated teller machines for primarily financial institutions, providing customers with innovative and cost-effective personalized solutions in commercial remodel, program management, equipment and design solutions.

 

“Powerhouse and SVW have unique but complementary offerings, backed by strong management teams,” said T.J. Maloney, Chairman and CEO of Lincolnshire Management.  “We see vast potential for these companies to grow together and believe the combination will create a market-leading provider of outsourced business services.  We look forward to helping these highly scalable, tech-enabled companies grow, reach more customers and develop more services.”

 

Powerhouse currently serves an established customer base spread across a $600 billion facilities services market, while SVW has a rich history serving financial institutions across the country.  Combined, the company will provide refresh, remodel and facilities maintenance services to a roster of national chains of banks, health care facilities, convenience stores, restaurants, retail stores, and large residential rental apartment units.  The combined company will have more than 650 employees and work with a nationwide network of over 10,000 subcontractors in order to meet the needs of its growing customer base.

 

The transaction was led by Lincolnshire Management Managing Directors Philip Kim and Pieter Kodde. “The investment in Powerhouse and SVW is a terrific addition to Lincolnshire Management’s portfolio,” commented Kim and Kodde.  “We are extremely excited to work with the management teams as the company enters its next phase of growth, and support them as they continue to offer their services to the best nationwide brands in food service, hospitality, financial institutions, retail, healthcare and commercial real estate segments.”

 

Baird Global Investment Banking advised Powerhouse.  The transaction was financed by Cerberus Capital Management L.P.  SunTrust Robinson Humphrey acted as advisor to Lincolnshire Management.  Kirkland & Ellis LLP provided legal advice to Lincolnshire Management.
