KPAC Solutions (KPAC)
is a private equity firm (PE) focused upon acquiring and turning around distressed and under-performing manufacturing and industrial wholly owned subsidiaries/carve-outs (with or without stand alone capabilities).
Tampa, FL 33579
KPAC Solutions Established in 1991
With its headquarters in the suburb of Nashville TN, for 32 years KPAC Solutions (KPAC) has had a global reach with acquisitions of businesses within North America (USA & Mexico), Europe, and Asia. Typical targeted candidates are subsidiaries/carve-outs of the publicly traded Fortune 1000 with a manufacturing and industrial focused parent corporation that normally has a worldwide footprint. To date we have purchased many wholly owned subsidiaries/carve-outs from the likes of Eagle Pitcher, Southeastern Public Service, Standex, Kennametal, Terex, Lesco, Triarc, and many other global based parent corporations. Revenues have ranged from $20 million to well over $300 million and almost always have had negative EBITDA including negative historical trends across a spectrum of financial and operational benchmarks.

OVERVIEW & PHILOSOPHY
Nothing can stop KPAC
from moving forward with an acquisition...
We cut through the “traditional acquisition process” to close deals quickly. We have a unique ability to complete an acquisition within 9 to 12 weeks (or less depending on the sellers motivation to close and KPAC’s ability to gain approval(s) from any/all governmental and/or regulatory authorities) from the time that we first sign an NDA and receive all financial and operational insights of the distressed acquisition opportunity.
Our acquisition candidates include subsidiaries/divisions/carve-outs of a larger publicly traded corporation, or an equity group’s portfolio company or possibly an independent standard business involved with bank workout groups that fall within KPAC’s targeted current revenue stream of $20 million to well over $300 million.
Cross-border transactions are not a hurdle for our international team of seasoned professionals.
Confidentiality is always a major concern to protect the seller from any negative background “noise” in the given market/industry space. We are committed to completing acquisitions discretely, with little face-to-face interaction with operational management leading up to the closing date. A certain level of interaction is required to provide a seamless transition post-closing, including the completion of all operational interdependence from the parent post-closing.
