Mesirow Financial acted as exclusive financial advisor to Pamco Printed Tape & Label Co., Inc. ("Pamco" or the "Company") in its sale to Resource Label Group, LLC ("Resource Label"), a portfolio company of First Atlantic Capital, Ltd. ("First Atlantic").
Pamco is a full-service designer and manufacturer of pressure sensitive labels for consumer nondurable markets, including food and beverage, health and beauty, confection, household products and pharmaceutical. The Company maintains extensive printing capabilities, including digital, UV flexographic, rotary screen and offset, to service customers with varying label needs. The Company operates a full-service production facility in Des Plaines, Illinois, as well as a sales office in Warwick, Rhode Island.
Pamco represents Resource Label’s first add-on acquisition since it was acquired by First Atlantic in April 2011.
Michael Blechman, owner and Chief Executive Officer of Pamco, commented, "It was a pleasure working with the Mesirow Financial team. Their expertise in the paper and packaging sector was key in indentifying a strategic partner whose strengths and capabilities would allow us to continue to build on our solid foundation and help take Pamco to the next level."
"We are honored to have the opportunity to advise Pamco on this successful transaction," said Jeffrey A. Golman, vice chairman and head of Mesirow Financial's Investment Banking group. "Pamco and Resource Label are highly complementary businesses and their combination creates a leading label producer with superior capabilities and service, while maintaining the Pamco legacy so important to this family-owned company."
The transaction represents another successful assignment completed by Mesirow Financial's Investment Banking group. Having completed over 80 packaging transactions in recent years, Mesirow Financial is one of the most active advisors in the paper, plastics, packaging and specialty printing sectors.
Mesirow Financial's Investment Banking group has extensive experience working with family-owned businesses. We understand the personal and emotional investments that business owners have in their companies, and that the decision whether to pursue a liquidity event is one of the most important times of their professional, and often personal, lives.
