CHS Capital Completes Sale of Dura-Line Holdings, Inc.

Chicago-based private equity firm Capital™ completed the sale of Dura-Line Holdings, Inc., a portfolio investment of CHS Private Equity V LP, to Mexichem (BMV:MEXCHEM).

Headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, Dura-Line is the global leader of high density polyethylene-based conduit, duct and pressure pipe solutions for telecom, energy and infrastructure-related markets. Dura-Line serves customers in 50 countries and is the exclusive provider for many of the world’s leading telecom companies.

CHS Capital invested in Dura-Line in January 2012 and worked closely with management to complete two add-on acquisitions, diversify end-market exposure, enhance the company’s geographic footprint and professionalize the board of directors. These efforts led to substantial increases in Dura-Line’s revenues and EBITDA during CHS’ ownership.

“It was a pleasure to work with CEO Paresh Chari and the management team at Dura-Line to achieve such substantial growth over the last two years,” said Dan Hennessy, Partner at CHS Capital. “Dura-Line’s product quality, ongoing product innovation and unmatched industry experience will surely position the company well for continued growth.”

“The strategic insights and operational expertise CHS provided was a critical component to our growth,” said Paresh Chari. “We look forward to working with Mexichem to continue our global expansion.”
