Synventive Molding Solutions Announces Recapitalization

Investment by Littlejohn Supports Growth Platform for Global Hot Runner Systems Provider
__________________________________________________________________

PEABODY, MA, May 6, 2011 – Synventive Molding Solutions, a Peabody, MA-based leading designer and manufacturer of hot runner systems and related components for the global injecting molding industry, announced today that it has closed its financial restructuring led by Greenwich, CT-based private equity firm, Littlejohn & Co., LLC.

“This is an exciting day for Synventive. Our successful financial restructuring demonstrates the confidence our new partners at Littlejohn have in the long-term potential of our company,” said Robert Davies, Synventive’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “As a result of their support, we are now better placed to leverage our leading position as a provider of hot runner solutions to the automotive industry allowing us to expand into new segments and emerging markets. Given 75% of our revenue comes from outside North America we are actively exploring opportunities around the globe.”

Robert E. Davis, a Managing Director of Littlejohn, said, “We are excited to have Synventive represent our latest investment. With the conclusion of the restructuring, we believe that the company is now properly capitalized to aggressively pursue its strategic objectives.” Mr. Davis, along with Brian E. Ramsay and Antonio Miranda of Littlejohn, will join the Board of Directors of the company. After the restructuring, Synventive will be majority owned by Littlejohn.

Mr. Ramsay added, “Consistent with Littlejohn’s strategy of investing in market-leading businesses with strong management teams, we look forward to supporting Synventive, as the company looks to actively broaden its industry and geographical exposure, drive product growth and identify add-on acquisitions to further strengthen the business.”
