OFS Energy Fund Sells Allied Power Group to AEA Investors

Houston – June 17, 2019 – OFS Energy Fund (“OFS”) has closed the sale of Allied Power Group, LLC (“APG” or the “Company”), a Fund III portfolio company, to an affiliate of AEA Investors LP (“AEA”), a New York-based private equity firm. David Theis (APG’s CEO), Austin David (APG’s CFO), and other key members of the APG management team will remain with the Company post-transaction. 

OFS invested in APG in October of 2015, providing growth capital to pursue new opportunities in the industrial gas turbine repair market with enhanced internal capabilities and expansion into other turbine classes. Under OFS’ ownership period, APG added key management team members in David Theis as COO and President, later assuming his present role as CEO, and Austin David as CFO. Strategically, during OFS’ ownership period, the Company added rotor repair capabilities, built a field service team, developed a new parts initiative, purchased the real estate of the Company’s corporate headquarters, and completed the acquisition of Eta Technologies to expand into the Siemens V-Series IGT repair market.
“We are extremely proud of what we were able to achieve with our APG investment over the past few years,” said Jerad McMayon, Partner of OFS. “Together with our management team, we were able to accomplish all of the goals we set for ourselves in our initial underwriting. The company that AEA purchased today is a platform primed for significant expansion in the coming years, and we wish them the best as they work to continue APG’s growth trajectory and execute their investment plan.”
“APG and our management team benefited greatly from our partnership with OFS, drawing on their experience growing businesses in the energy services sector,” said David Theis, APG’s CEO, “OFS supported the APG team through many major business decisions as we worked to execute our bundled services strategy. We were able to achieve game changing results for the investors, our employees and, most importantly, our clients. Our new ownership group, AEA Investors, is the perfect partner for APG to accomplish our long term client service and business goals.”
Robert W. Baird & Co. served as exclusive financial advisor and Locke Lord LLP acted as legal counsel to APG in the transaction.
