PPL Group is a private fund that makes equity investments in middle-market operating companies.  We have committed capital and commonly close within 30 days of initial due diligence.

We focus on restructuring manufacturing companies. The tombstones below represent a selection of our private equity transactions:

$50 Million in Annual Revenue

Aluminum Extrusion in Florida

The company’s lender threatened foreclosure and liquidation. PPL Group and our equity partner created a solution with the bank to purchase the company out of bankruptcy. Over 50 jobs were preserved.

$40 Million in Annual Revenue

Steel Fabrication and Machining in Ohio and Illinois

As creditors pushed for a liquidation, PPL Group purchased the company out of bankruptcy. The company retained their customers and over 100 jobs, all with minimal interruption to operations.

$75 Million in Annual Revenue

Metal Fabrication in Illinois

PPL Group and our equity partner purchased the company out of bankruptcy. 450 jobs were saved at three manufacturing facilities and four distribution facilities.

$11 Million in Annual Revenue

Fastener and Rivet Manufacturer in Wisconsin

Previous ownership depleted the company’s cash, forcing it to stretch vendors and delay shipments to customers. We purchased the company and fast-tracked a performance improvement plan. All major customers were retained and vendors were brought within terms. 50 jobs saved.
