In 2011, the packaging marketplace was a standout for private equity investors.
And here’s good news -- 2012 is shaping up to be another winner!
The response to our very first packaging conference last June beat our expectations, and for a roomful of PE investors, it was a big boost for their success in this sector.
If you missed out that first time, or want to dig further into where 2012’s
opportunities will be, you’ll want to attend The Capital Roundtable’s encore
full‑day conference, with all-NEW content, on private equity investing in
packaging companies Thursday, May 17, in New York.
What’s more, we’re delivering special savings of $400 into your hands when you
sign up now for this conference. Our generous Early Bird Rate applies on all
seats when you make your reservation by April 6, 2012!
This conference is being sponsored by Mesirow Financial Inc. and Resin
Here’s six things you need to know:
Most important, we are helming this conference with a distinguished voice of experience. We are delighted to have as our chair Greg Myers, Senior Managing Director at Mason Wells Inc., a Milwaukee-based private equity firm focused on packaging and packed goods investments that manages over $800 million in capital through the Mason Wells Buyout Funds.
Mason Well led last year’s notable middle-market transaction activity with its acquisition of Mullinix Packages, Inc., a leading food packaging thermoformer. Other prominent middle-market transactions include: Aurora Capital Group’s acquisition of Industrial Container Services, a leading provider of reusable container solutions; OpenGate Capital’s acquisition of two former subsidiaries of Cascades Inc. to capitalize on growth opportunities in recycled packaging under the new name of Fusion Paperboard; and Windjammer Capital Investors’ acquisition of Protective Industries, a leading manufacturer of plastic closures.
Another appealing feature is that middle-market companies can carve out their own points of differentiation. The 800-lb. gorillas of packaging often become high-volume, low‑profitability players, leaving much of the innovation and specialization to the smaller providers. When you add value to a small company through speedier production on short runs, innovative packaging, and advanced technology for niche applications, it becomes a very attractive acquisition target.
20 Experts Provide A King-Sized Package Of Information.
We’ll discuss the issues that are top of mind with packaging investors, and bring you facts that can make a difference in your future. You’ll hear how companies are managing their material costs and risks. Commodity prices for materials such as resin have been volatile in recent years, just one issue in the Gulf can drive changes that immediately effect margins. Knowing how to orchestrate your supply chain and your customer relationships is a key to maximizing performance.
We’ll also focus on how to develop and improve your management teams, which is another area investors can immediately add value. Many packaging companies are family-owned businesses where bringing in star performers in the right places can rapidly take you where you want to go.
And we’ll cover the impact of sustainability on the packaging marketplace. While there is no global initiative or national legislation that requires action, there are still state and local regulations -- including outright bans -- that must be dealt with. The reality is that although consumers like sustainable solutions, they don’t like paying for them, so we’ll explain how many packaging companies balance mandates from governments and image‑conscious retailers with realistic priorities for material substitutions.
Greg Myers is a member of Mason Wells’ investment committee and responsible for initiating investment opportunities, negotiating transactions, supervising due diligence, and working with portfolio company management teams.
He serves on the board of directors for Oliver Products Co., NEX Performance Films, and Eddy Packing, Co. He has over 20 years of private equity investing experience in middle-market companies, and was part of the team that formed Mason Wells. Greg holds a BS from the University of Iowa, and an MBA from Marquette University.
Along with Greg, our four panel discussions will feature 20 knowledgeable private equity experts in packaging, including GPs, portfolio company operating executives, investment bankers, lenders, consultants and more. They will share their real-world perspectives, lessons learned and industry outlooks, including insights on recent deal activity and managing current portfolio companies.
