PRESS RELEASE

The Resolute Fund, L.P., an affiliate of The Jordan Company, today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell Reinhold Holdings, Inc. (“Reinhold”) to HEICO Corporation (NYSE: HEI.A and HEI). Reinhold is a leading manufacturer of advanced custom composite components and complex composite assemblies for commercial aviation, defense and space applications. Financial details of the transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, were not disclosed.
Acquired by The Jordan Company in 2006 and headquartered in Santa Fe Springs, California, Reinhold produces high-quality, heat resistant, advanced custom composite components and assemblies. Reinhold provides its customers with product integrity, weight reduction and resilience in highly- demanding environments. Its commercial aviation products are primarily composite passenger seating solutions for existing and next-generation large and regional jet aircraft. Its defense and space products serve fail-safe, mission-critical roles for the rocket-propulsion industry.
“It has been a privilege to partner with the Reinhold management team in building a premier manufacturer of complex composite components and assemblies for safety-critical commercial aviation, defense and space applications,” said Jonathan F. Boucher, Managing Partner at The Jordan Company. “Reinhold provides exceptional service to its expanding list of customers. As part of HEICO, Reinhold is well positioned to further penetrate its growing markets.”
The Jordan Company worked in partnership with the management team to grow its competitive position through investments in operations and customer relationships. These organic activities have been supplemented by the strategic acquisition of Enpro Engineered Products, Inc. which further expanded the Company’s product portfolio and capabilities.
“The Jordan Company has been a great partner in supporting the growth and expansion of Reinhold,” said Clarence Hightower, CEO of Reinhold. “Jordan has confidently supported Management by providing the necessary resources and operational guidance, M&A expertise and strategic planning support. With the full support of The Jordan Company, Reinhold has demonstrated significant growth, market share gains and customer satisfaction in its growing Commercial Aircraft and Defense (Domestic and Foreign Military Sales) markets.”
