NAPL conducts tag & label acquisition outreach

May 31, 2013

The National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL) Mergers & Acquisitions Team has announced that it is conducting an acquisition outreach initiative on behalf of a prominent global label supplier in the Midwest Region of the United States. The M&A Team has been retained to assist in a strategic growth plan for its client, one of the top label suppliers to some of the largest brands in the beverage, food and consumer products market.

NAPL M&A specialists are now in the process of identifying suitable candidates for acquisition by the company. Candidates should be focused on the pressure sensitive label market, ideally with revenues in the $10-40 million range.

The client is well-capitalized and invests continuously in people, processes and technology. Today, the majority of the client’s products are produced utilizing offset and gravure print processes. The client will be able to bring $6 million to $10 million in flexo business that is currently being outsourced to the acquired company. The client seeks a business whose operational management team will continue in that capacity after the acquisition.

“This will provide a unique opportunity for a proven business with a strong management team to join forces with one of the tag and label segment’s most successful players,” says Tom Cobery, NAPL senior consultant and tag and label industry specialist.

Cobery encourages any interested parties considering their liquidity or growth options for coming years to explore this opportunity by contacting him by June 14 at 201-523-6326 or
