Jersey City, NJ, July 08, 2013: Diversified Global Graphics Group (DG3), a leading provider of global print, technology, and visual communication services, announced today that it has completed the refinancing of its senior debt with Cole Taylor Business Capital. The terms of the loans were not disclosed. DG3 is supported and majority owned by Arsenal Capital Partners, a leading New York-based private equity firm that invests in middle-market specialty industrial and healthcare companies.
DG3’s CEO Tom Saggiomo commented on the refinance stating, “We are delighted to have Cole Taylor as our new senior lender. They understand the transformation strategy we have been executing for the past two years. This financing enables DG3 to implement certain strategic initiatives including technology and equipment investments as well as potential tuck in acquisitions. There are a number of very attractive investment opportunities for our business and we look forward to capitalizing on them.”
LJ Baillargeon, Chief Financial Officer also commented. “A portion of our business operates in the very challenging commercial printing segment where each year we see fewer surviving establishments. DG3’s refinancing is important as it reassures our employees, clients and suppliers of our financial sustainability and commitment. In addition, the cost of this capital is far lower than our previous debt, which enables us to increase our investments in the business.”
Terrence Mullen, Managing Partner of Arsenal Capital Partners added, “DG3’s management team has managed through the most challenging economic cycle in decades and has continually advanced its strategy of integrating technology and business process outsourcing solutions into its print client base. We look forward to the continued evolution of this business which will help to deliver a superior investment return for Arsenal.”
