PRESS RELEASE

ATLANTA, Aug. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Select Interior Concepts, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIC), a premier distributor of interior building products, today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement under which an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners, Inc. (“Sun Capital”) will acquire Select Interior Concepts (“SIC”) for approximately $411 million in an all-cash transaction (the “Merger Transaction”).

Under the terms of the agreement, each share of SIC common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the closing of the transaction will be entitled to receive $14.50 per share in cash, representing a 32% premium over SIC’s closing price and a 42% premium over SIC’s 30-day volume-weighted average price of $10.20 on August 6, 2021. Subject to shareholder approval and other customary closing conditions, including the receipt of required regulatory approvals, the transaction is expected to close early in the fourth quarter of 2021. Upon the completion of the transaction, SIC will become a privately held company and shares of SIC common stock will no longer be listed on any public markets.

Brett G. Wyard, Chairman of SIC, commented, “On June 30, 2021, when we announced the closing of the sale of our Residential Design Services segment, we noted that the Board was actively evaluating a full range of strategic, operational and financial alternatives to ensure that the Company was on the best path to delivering shareholder value. After thorough and thoughtful deliberations in consultation with our financial advisors, we are pleased to enter into a definitive sale agreement with an affiliate of Sun Capital. In making this decision, the Board considered the current state of the business and its outlook and opportunities. We believe this path is in the best interests of our shareholders, providing them with immediate and substantial value for their investment.”

Bill Varner, Chief Executive Officer added, “This transaction will deliver significant cash value for SIC’s shareholders as promised when I joined SIC. Additionally, it offers exciting new opportunities for customers, partners and employees of our Architectural Surfaces Group (‘ASG’) segment. We are very grateful to the entire team that contributed to SIC’s and ASG’s success over the years. Sun Capital is the ideal partner to advance its long-term strategy and the transaction is a testament to the dedication and achievements of our team members.”

“We have long been an active investor in the building materials sector, and have been impressed by SIC’s track record, ability to deliver for customers and overall industry vision,” said Jeremy Stone, Managing Director at Sun Capital. “We are excited to support SIC’s strong management team in the next stage of growth, capitalize on new opportunities and drive success.”

In light of the pending sale of SIC, the second quarter 2021 earnings conference call previously scheduled for 5:00 PM ET on August 9, 2021 has been cancelled. The Company will release its financial results for the second quarter of 2021 later today.
