Livingstone is pleased to announce the successful closing of acquisition financing for Premium Inspection & Testing Inc., a portfolio company of Calvert Street Capital Partners. First Merit Bank N.A. and Patriot Capital provided the financing for Premium Inspection’s acquisition of Quad City Testing Laboratory and Quad City Calibration, Inc. Premium Inspection is a diversified non-destructive testing (“NDT”) and inspection services business operating in the midstream and downstream oil and gas sector.
Quad City provides non-destructive testing and inspection services to a range of industries including agriculture, nuclear power generation, food processing and aerospace. The combined entity will be led by industry veterans and will continue to execute on Calvert Street’s initiative to build a world-class non-destructive testing and inspection business.
“Although CSCP has a broad investment mandate, our firm has made several investments in the NDT space over the past five years. Having worked with Livingstone previously in this space, we relied on their expertise and comprehensive vetting process to produce several options that exceeded our expectations,” said Matt McLain, a Principal at Calvert Street. “We ultimately selected First Merit and Patriot Capital, as these firms have a history of working together, and both groups are committed to assisting us in our growth plans.”
The financing for Premium Inspection represents our third transaction with Calvert Street and demonstrates our ability to not only address near-term capital needs, but also provide tailored financing solutions that address our clients’ longer-term growth objectives,” commented Tom Lesch, Livingstone’s Debt Capital Markets Director.
