"We hired CCG because it was obvious that they understood our business and our industry and were the kind of guys we could work with - honest and aggressive."

Brian and his team are the real deal. We interviewed several investment bankers but they stood out from the rest. I knew we could trust their willingness to work hard to accomplish our goals - and my instincts were right. This deal had to be completed on an aggressive time frame. Against a ticking clock, the team at CCG ran a full and competitive process and maintained utmost professionalism from start to finish. They were incredibly responsive and understood and respected our timeline. They guaranteed me the absolute most competitive financing and achieved best in market results. I would be thrilled to work with them again.”

J-B Weld was founded in 1969 by Sam and Mary Bonham. Sam had discovered a need for a "cold weld" product to use in his truck service garage, instead of traditional torch welding.

 •  Brian D. Corbett
Working with a Texas A&M chemist, he formulated an original "tougher than steel" two -part epoxy and named it J-B Weld. Sam and Mary soon went from selling the product out of their car to auto parts jobbers across Texas, to selling it in stores throughout the U.S. and internationally.

In 2008, the company was purchased by a team of private investors led by Chip Hanson, who is now President and CEO. In just a few years' time, Chip and his team broadened the product line and expanded their retail partnerships. Today, you can find J-B Weld products in over 50,000 retail locations worldwide, including Wal-mart, Pep Boys, O'Reilly Auto Parts, Menards, Lowe's, The Home Depot, Grainger, Auto Zone, Ace Hardware, Canadian Tire and K-Mart.

By 2012, Chip knew the time was right to buy out his partners - the other private investors. The amount of financing required to do so well exceeded what typical commercial banks would provide. Chip's legal counsel suggested he contact CCG. CCG focused on identifying institutional financing sources to provide the remaining capital for the acquisition. On an incredibly short timeline, CCG was able to run a full, competitive process resulting in thirteen term sheets in fifteen business days. The team worked long hours on extensive financial modeling, valuation and pricing exercises to get best in market financing for Chip and his team. J-B Weld chose Caltius Mezzanine for the additional financing based not only on financial parameters of their offer, but additional value added attributes. On December 28, just in time to ring in the new year, CCG completed the deal, Chip achieved his goal, and his partners exited their investment with substantial returns and untold tax savings.
