Cleveland, Ohio, September 17, 2015 – Resilience Capital Partners (collectively with its affiliates, “Resilience”) announced
today that it has sold ASC Signal Corporation (ASC) to Palo Alto, CA-based Communications & Power Industries LLC (CPI), a
portfolio company of Veritas Capital, for an enterprise value of $50 million subject to customary post-closing
Headquartered in Plano, TX, ASC designs and builds advanced satellite communications, radar and high-frequency
antennas and controllers. The company has manufacturing facilities in Texas and Canada, and employs approximately 125
people worldwide. Resilience acquired ASC in January 2008 from Andrew Corporation and created a new company.
After bringing in new company leadership, the Resilience operating team and ASC management focused the next several
years on implementing a highly ambitious, global turnaround at ASC despite ongoing challenges from an economic and
end market demand perspective. As a result, ASC was transformed from an orphaned business unit into a highlyprofitable
and valuable operating company.
“We have enjoyed working with the ASC team over the past seven years. Together we successfully created a stand-alone
business and transformed the strategy around its radar, high frequency and earth station antenna products,” said Bassem
Mansour, Co-CEO of Resilience. “It will be an excellent addition to CPI’s existing portfolio of capabilities.”
Keith Buckley, President and CEO of ASC Signal Corporation, said, “We thank Resilience for its partnership and support in
helping us improve operations and strengthen our financial position over the past seven years. And now, we are
delighted to join CPI. In addition to aligning complementary product portfolios and customer bases, this acquisition will
provide ASC Signal with access to CPI’s well-established worldwide resources, enabling us to further grow the business
and better serve our existing customer base.”
Jones Day served as legal counsel, and Philpott, Ball &Werner acted as exclusive financial advisor to Resilience
and ASC.
