American Capital Receives $33 Million From The Sale Of ADF Holdings, Inc.

BETHESDA, Md., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- American Capital, Ltd. (Nasdaq: ACAS) ("American Capital") announced today that it has sold its interest in ADF Holdings, Inc., the parent company of Anchor Drilling Fluids USA, Inc. (collectively, "Anchor" or the "Company"), to Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. (Nasdaq: CLMT), a leading independent producer of specialty hydrocarbon and fuel products. American Capital received $33 million in debt and equity proceeds from the transaction, subject to post-closing adjustments.

"Anchor has seen significant growth in the past several years as an independent company; however, the combination with Calumet will only enhance its position as one of the country's leading providers of drilling fluids solutions, completion fluids and production chemicals to the oil and gas industry," said Paul Hanrahan, CEO and co-founder of American Capital Energy & Infrastructure.

American Capital first invested in Anchor in July 2005.  As one of the largest independent drilling fluid providers in the United States, Anchor designs, manufactures and sells its products to approximately 250 exploration and production companies operating in North America.  The Company is headquartered in Tulsa, OK and operates manufacturing, mixing, storage and distribution facilities in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Montana, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.

Since American Capital's 1997 IPO through the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company has earned a 10% compounded annual return, including interest, dividends, fees and net gains, on over 370 realizations of senior debt, subordinated debt, equity and structured products investments, totaling $20 billion of committed capital.  American Capital earned a 24% compounded annual return on the exit of its equity investments, including dividends, fees and net gains.  For a chart showing a partial listing of American Capital's exited portfolio companies, please go to http://www.americancapital.com/our-portfolio/exited-companies.
