MCG Capital Corporation (Nasdaq:MCGC) (“MCG”) announced today that Superior Industries Investors, LLC (“Superior”), a majority-owned, control investment of MCG, sold all outstanding shares of its capital stock of Superior International Industries Holdings, Inc. to a newly formed acquisition entity owned by Pfingsten Partners LLC and management. After transaction expenses, MCG’s cash proceeds in connection with the exit of this investment are expected to be approximately $42.3 million. In September 2006, MCG made its initial debt and equity investment in Superior.
“This sale, and the combination of the equity realization and repayment of our subordinated debt investment, is another step forward in our strategic plan to monetize equity investments to support the redeployment of capital into current yield-oriented investments to grow operating income and stockholder distributions," said Steven F. Tunney, Sr, MCG’s President and CEO.
Superior is a leading manufacturer of recreational products, site solutions and shade products. Products are sold under numerous brand names including “Playland”, “Grounds For Play” and “WOW” play equipment; “Child Works” playground components; “Litchfield” shelters; “Webcoat” site furniture; “Superior Shade” and “Skyspan” shade products; and “Ground Plug” anchoring products.
