EMCOR Group, Inc. Announces Agreement To Acquire RepconStrickland

EMCOR Group, Inc. (NYSE: EME) today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire RepconStrickland, Inc. (“RepconStrickland”), a leading provider of recurring turnaround and specialty services to the North American refinery and petrochemical markets. EMCOR is acquiring the privately held company in an all cash transaction valued at approximately $455 million from its shareholders, including its majority shareholder, an affiliate of ArcLight Capital Partners, LLC, an energy focused private equity fund.

Headquartered in La Porte, TX and Corpus Christi, TX, RepconStrickland has a 36-year history as one of the preeminent U.S. industrial and refinery service companies. With a track record of superior project execution and an industry-leading safety record, RepconStrickland is a leader in executing turnarounds for critical process units.

The RepconStrickland platform includes five recognized brands with capabilities encompassing a broad spectrum of turnaround and specialty services, including shutdowns, overhauls, revamps, capital projects, engineering and constructability reviews, project management, welding services, refractory services, tower services and emergency repair. RepconStrickland generated revenues of approximately $400 million in 2012.

Tony Guzzi, President and Chief Executive Officer of EMCOR Group, commented, “The acquisition of RepconStrickland strengthens our position in the industrial and energy sectors which are attractive industries poised for future growth. RepconStrickland is an extremely well-run organization that provides turnaround and specialty services across North America, with a focus in the U.S. Gulf. The team has an outstanding reputation in the industry, from both managerial and safety perspectives, and will become a key asset to EMCOR going forward. RepconStrickland operates in markets adjacent to our existing Ohmstede operations, provides solid long-term growth potential, is resilient during down cycles and creates additional access to high-margin, high-growth markets that will help fulfill many of our strategic goals.”

“We firmly believe EMCOR is an excellent natural fit for RepconStrickland,” stated Bob Parker, President and Chief Executive Officer of RepconStrickland. “The prospect of working with a proven industry leader that shares our commitment to customer loyalty and safety, while maintaining our organizational structure, is a great opportunity for everyone at RepconStrickland. We are excited to join the EMCOR organization and look forward to partnering with the EMCOR and Ohmstede team to produce sustainable growth and exceptional customer value.”
