Seacoast Capital (“Seacoast”), a lower middle market non-control growth capital investor, announced today its $16 million investment in Cambium United (“Cambium”). Cambium, based in Plano, Texas, is a diversified holding company consisting of two primary divisions: (i) Cambium Building and Construction Services; and (ii) Sustainable Modular Management. Cambium Building and Construction Services is a holding company established to own operating assets in the portable sanitation rental services industry, currently consisting of two operating companies, MMG and Chem-Can. MMG is one of the largest providers of portable sanitation and ancillary rental services in the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area, having recently expanded operations into the Houston market. Similarly, Chem-Can is the largest provider of portable sanitation and ancillary rental services in Oklahoma. Sustainable Modular Management is primarily engaged in the leasing and sale of highly-engineered, customized, commercial modular buildings for customers encompassing the military, government, education and railroad end markets, among others.
“Our investment in Cambium is a perfect example of Seacoast’s primary focus on partnering with management teams for growth purposes”
“Our investment in Cambium is a perfect example of Seacoast’s primary focus on partnering with management teams for growth purposes,” said Jamie Donelan, a Principal with Seacoast. “Nick and the rest of Cambium’s management team have built enviable positions within both the portable sanitation rental services and relocatable modular building industries despite having historically lacked an institutional junior capital partner. Our capital and ongoing support will allow Cambium to opportunistically pursue both organic and acquisitive growth moving forward.”
“We had a number of compelling offers on the table,” Cambium CEO and majority shareholder, Nick Mackie noted, “but what set Seacoast apart was their prior experience within, and extensive knowledge of, the portable sanitation services industry, as well as their ability to customize a transaction structure with a mix of debt and equity securities to sync with the needs of our respective businesses. We very much look forward to working with Seacoast over the coming years to accelerate our growth plan in the Midwest and beyond.”
Seacoast invested unsponsored preferred equity and subordinated debt in Cambium, which represents Seacoast’s second platform investment in the portable sanitation rental services industry. The capital will be used to both recapitalize Cambium’s balance sheet and fund certain actionable growth opportunities throughout the United States within both of the Company’s business lines. Texas Capital Bank provided senior debt in support of the transaction.
