OEM Capital® was asked by MITEQ, Inc., a privately held technology company, to assist in its sale. Earlier, OEM Capital® had successfully sold MITEQ’s wholly owned MCL, Inc. subsidiary, a manufacturer of high power amplifiers, to Communications & Power Industries.
MITEQ, based in Hauppauge, New York, designs and manufactures high performance microwave components and equipment for the defense and satellite communications industries.
L3 Communications Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of L3 Communications Holdings, Inc., a publicly listed company with annual revenues of US$12 Billion. It operates as a prime contractor in intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems; command, control, and communications (C3) systems; platform and logistics solutions for aircraft, maritime vessels, and ground vehicles; and national security solutions.
OEM Capital® worked closely with the majority shareholder and MITEQ’s management team to prepare the Company for sale and identify and approach a group of strategic acquirers that could benefit from MITEQ’s extensive engineering resources, existing product portfolio and international customer base.
OEM Capital’s success with MITEQ illustrates that shareholder objectives can be met by a well-executed approach to a sale or divestiture by investment banking professionals who are knowledgeable about the industry and the intents of its participants.
