Benefits of the Transaction:
Synergies – The Alpine 4 acquisition of APF will leverage complementary strengths between its subsidiary Quality Circuit Assembly, Inc. (QCA) and APF. QCA currently sends all precision fabrication work for its clientele to other vendors. With the addition of APF, these subsidiaries can cross leverage complimentary services between their customer base. Alpine 4 believes this will yield an additional $2.5 million in annual sales between the two companies over the next 18 months.
Increased Shareholder Value – This transaction will result in a positive adjustment to Alpine 4’s Shareholder Equity, and we anticipate it adding add $5–6m in annual sales to Alpine 4 over the next 12 months.
Terry W. Protto, VP of Portfolio Management, commented: “APF and QCA manage a similar set of production metrics or KPI’s such as Make Span, Flow Time, Inventory Management, Work Station and Floor Time Management.” This in combination with world class quality, customer care, and fulfillment performance, set the two companies at the pinnacle of their respective market spaces. We are excited to bring APF into the Alpine 4 family.
