PRESS RELEASE

JANUARY 2022
The Partners of ShoreView are pleased to announce the sale of Burton Plumbing Services, LLC (“Burton”).

ShoreView partnered with Burton in March of 2020. At that time Burton’s owner was seeking to both diversify his personal net worth and find a partner to help achieve the next phase of the Company’s growth. ShoreView structured a transaction that:
Provided liquidity to the owner while enabling him to maintain a meaningful ownership position

Facilitated an aggressive add-on acquisition campaign to grow scale and expand the geographic coverage of the single-market business
Created an equity incentive plan for key managers

ShoreView then worked with Burton’s management team to:
Pursue a strategic plan to create a central U.S. residential services provider through a focus on growing into mid-size midwestern cities
Complete six add-on acquisitions within the target geography, which expanded the Company’s market coverage from the Rocky Mountain region to the Great Lakes area. The acquisitions added key management, service line expansion, and access to new customers
Significantly grow financial performance through acquisition and investment to support an aggressive organic growth plan
ShoreView exited its investment in Burton to another private equity firm that will continue to support management’s growth strategy.
