“Dent Wizard represents another marquee transaction in the aftermarket services sector,” says Harris Williams & Co. Managing Director Joe Conner.
Harris Williams & Co., a middle market investment bank focused on the advisory needs of clients worldwide, announced the sale of Dent Wizard International, a portfolio company of H.I.G. Capital, to Gridiron Capital, LLC. Dent Wizard is a provider of cosmetic automotive reconditioning services in North America. Harris Williams & Co. acted as financial advisor to Dent Wizard. The transaction was led by Frank Mountcastle, Joe Conner and James O’Malley of Harris Williams & Co.’s Transportation & Logistics (T&L) Group and Chris Williams, Brent Spiller and Chip Duggins of Harris Williams & Co.’s Richmond office.
“Dent Wizard is a tremendous platform with an exceptional track record of market leadership and growth,” said Frank Mountcastle, a managing director at Harris Williams & Co. “It has been a pleasure working with Terry Koebbe, CEO of Dent Wizard, and his team to find a new partner who shares Dent Wizard’s vision for the future. We have a longstanding relationship with the H.I.G. team and are delighted to have represented them on this transaction.”
Added Joe Conner, managing director at Harris Williams & Co., “Dent Wizard represents another marquee transaction in the aftermarket services sector. As the lead advisor on Dent Wizard along with other recent transactions like Caliber Collision Centers, ABRA and Mister Car Wash, we have seen firsthand the tremendous appetite for deals in this sector. The compelling combination of steady, long-term growth combined with a highly fragmented industry has consistently proven to be an attractive investment thesis.”
