Public Notice of Acquisition Opportunity: IL-Based Precision Sheet Metal Fabricator

Illinois-Based Precision Sheet Metal Fabricator/CNC Machine Shop Acquisition Opportunity

Company Overview

The Company is an established Precision Sheet Metal Fabricator, CNC Machining, Metal Finishing and Value-Added Manufacturer located in Des Plaines, Illinois, just minutes from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. Founded in 1957, the Company currently operates in a 100,000 square foot facility and employs 50 people. The Company is an approved supplier for Commercial Aerospace, Military and Defense, Medical and other industries that demand the highest quality parts. The Company’s strength is in the manufacturing of custom close tolerance component fabrication in all alloys, CNC vertical and horizontal milling, turning, metal finishing, design assistance, and processing from inception to prototype to full production. The Company is certified to ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D, has NADCAP approval for Chemical Processing and Welding, and has earned “Top Supplier” awards from many of its major customers.

Current Situation

Historically, sales have been over $12MM annually with concentrations to Fortune 500 customers in the aerospace and healthcare industries. Traditionally, the product mix has been approximately 65% aerospace, 30% healthcare, 5% industrial. However, due to COVID, the business has experienced a significant loss in revenues as has most of the aerospace industry. In 2020, revenues fell 27% to $8.2MM. Losses were incurred due to write downs in inventory and adjustments to overhead costs. The Company has absorbed costs and write downs associated with this downturn in business. The resulting Company is a much more streamlined version of the previous company and poised for growth and profitability. As a Tier II, single source supplier of ITAR approved parts to aerospace industry, an acquirer can use leverage to negotiate price increases with marquee industry partners to advance sales in the aerospace and healthcare industries.

The Opportunity

The Company is seeking to sell either a portion or all of its business, including inventory and equipment, in the form of a sale to a strategic investor familiar with these industries. Newpoint Advisors is available to provide additional information and details on data available for prospective buyers that are willing to sign an NDA. The Company contemplates that a sale will happen on an expedited basis.

Financial Summary
(1) Expressed in $000’s.
(2) Gross Profit reflects nearly $2MM in inventory adjustments to COGS that negatively impacted the 2019 results. Similar chargebacks, inventory adjustments, and carrying costs associated with COVID-related sales losses caused negative gross profit in 2020.

Transaction Summary

Type of Transaction: An Equity or Asset Purchase of a Machined Metal Parts manufacturer, or alternatively the segments/product lines (aerospace and healthcare) will be sold separately.

The going concern includes inventory, receivables, leasehold improvements and goodwill.

NOTE: The Company’s business plan and financials have not been audited by Newpoint Advisors Corporation and are subject to the potential acquirer’s due diligence. The purpose of this document is to gauge interest in a potential acquisition of the Company described above.
