Patrick Industries, Inc. Completes Acquisitions Of Frontline Mfg., Inc. And Premier Concepts, Inc.

ELKHART, Ind., Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Patrick Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: PATK) ("Patrick" or the "Company") announced today the acquisitions of the business and certain assets of two related Warsaw, Indiana-based companies, Frontline Mfg., Inc. ("Frontline") and Premier Concepts, Inc. ("Premier") in a combined transaction ("Frontline/Premier").  Frontline, a major manufacturer of fiberglass bath fixtures including tubs, showers and combination tub/shower units for the recreational vehicle ("RV"), manufactured housing ("MH"), and residential housing markets, has projected 2013 annual revenues of approximately $15 million.  Premier, a custom fabricator of solid surface, granite, and quartz countertops for the RV and residential housing industries, has projected 2013 annual revenues of approximately $10 million.   

"Frontline's reputation among its customer base for innovative designs, high quality products, and exceptional in house engineering capabilities will allow us to establish a strong presence in the fiberglass bath fixtures market within the industries we serve while providing opportunities to bring new products to market through existing sales channels," said Todd Cleveland, President and Chief Executive Officer of Patrick.  "In addition, the acquisition of Premier will enhance our position as an industry leader in the RV, MH, and industrial countertop markets by leveraging our operational talent and experience with the team at Premier.  Consistent with previous acquisitions, we will continue to support both of these businesses with a financial and operational foundation that will allow each to preserve the entrepreneurial spirit that has been so important to their success, and enable each to continue to bring the highest quality products, service and value to our customers."   

The combined net purchase price for both businesses of approximately $8.0 million was funded under the Company's $80 million revolving secured senior credit facility and includes the acquisition of accounts receivable, inventory, prepaid expenses, tooling, machinery, equipment and vehicles.  Frontline and Premier will continue to operate on a stand-alone basis under their respective brand names and in their existing 75,000 and 40,000 square foot leased facilities, respectively.  The Company expects the acquisitions to be accretive to earnings per share. 

"The acquisitions of Frontline and Premier are a natural fit with Patrick's existing RV, MH and industrial businesses and we are excited to bring these two companies into the Patrick family to increase our product offerings, market share, and per unit content.  Additionally, the strength and dedication of Frontline/Premier's management team and its solid reputation in the marketplace will be an asset to our organization as we continue to execute on our strategic initiatives," said Mr. Cleveland.
