How We Partnered

Transaction Dynamics
A partnership with management to acquire the Company from family ownership. Management made a meaningful investment in the company as part of the transaction.

Investment Thesis

  • Strong customer value proposition owing to technical knowledge, rapid delivery, and value-added services including inventory rotation, recharging and warranty fulfillment
  • Multiple growth levers including entering adjacent end markets, opening new locations and M&A driven by highly fragmented market
  • Stable, non-cyclical revenue growth due to aftermarket focus and “mission critical” nature of products
  • Limited exposure to commodity volatility from “closed-loop” model of collecting and recycling spent batteries
  • Attractive margins, cash flow profile, and deal dynamics

Incline Value Enhancement

  • Support organic growth within existing footprint and new geographies
  • Drive M&A activity
  • Develop and augment management team to support future growth
  • Improve operational performance through investments in infrastructure & technology
