Transaction Overview

Long Point Capital partnered with the family owners of Arch to repurchase the stake of a minority investor who was seeking liquidity, and to provide a capital base to expand the Company through acquisitions.


Following Long Point Capital’s investment, Arch successfully implemented its business plan, acquiring nine underperforming facilities, opening a large greenfield facility, and expanding its management team to accommodate the growth. Arch was sold to a private equity group in 2004.
