PRINTING AND DIGITAL IMAGING TRANSACTION

Integris Partners recently advised Vision Graphics, Inc. on its acquisition of Keyline Graphics, Inc.

“Integris served as more than just my investment bank, they were true partners in this process. They developed a tight, focused list of potential targets and evaluated the possible synergies of each acquisition expeditiously,” said Mark Steputis, President of Vision Graphics.  “They managed the negotiation and streamlined due diligence so I could continue to operate Vision Graphics and prepare for the integration process.   They also helped me finance the acquisition in a responsible manner, which was far from easy in this market.  This transaction further expands Vision’s regional and national footprint, and we’re excited to add Keyline’s technical and customer service capabilities.”

“Given the condition of the general economy, and more specifically, the competitive dynamics of the printing and imaging industry, it was the ideal time for Vision Graphics to evaluate strategic acquisitions,” said Steve van den Heever, Managing Director at Integris Partners. “We were able to eliminate a great amount of deal risk for both sides by closing within 30 days of signing the LOI, which was quite an achievement given the rigorous diligence procedure that was undertaken and the tight credit market.”
