Pinecrest Capital Partners Serves as Exclusive Financial Advisor to LCR Contractors; Completes Second Transaction for the Spray Fireproofing and Thermal Insulation Company

DALLAS, TX (July 11, 2019) – Pinecrest Capital Partners (“Pinecrest”), a Dallas-based investment banking firm that offers exclusive advisory services to middle market companies, today announced its role as exclusive financial advisor to LCR Contractors (“LCR”) in the successful completion of a recapitalization with MFG Partners and Orix Mezzanine and Private Equity on March 15, 2019.

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, LCR is one of the largest spray fireproofing and spray foam insulation subcontractors in the U.S. MFG Partners is a private equity firm based in New York that invests in closely-held, family owned and operated mid-sized businesses.

This deal underscores Pinecrest’s exceptional capabilities as a financial advisor for investment services for the middle market and demonstrates the firm’s commitment to help clients achieve their business goals while securing a strategic long-term partner and execution of an efficient transaction process.

“This was our second transaction to complete with the Pinecrest team and again Pinecrest provided outstanding advice and helped us accomplish our goals,” said Clay Spicer, President of LCR. “MFG Partners and Orix are the next-level partners that we need to continue to grow LCR as the premier provider of spray fireproofing and foam insulation services across the south.”

“The entire LCR team has been successful at executing their strategy over the past few years,” added Bobby Renkes, Managing Director for Pinecrest Capital Partners. “We’ve established a strong relationship with LCR and Buddy and Clay Spicer over the years and it’s been exciting to see the Company grow.
