Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, Walle Corporation is a manufacturer of printed labels, primarily for the food, beverage, and household products industries. The Company has two plant locations. Their New Orleans, Louisiana plant produces lithographic cut and stack paper as well as film labels and in-mold labels. Their Winchester, Kentucky plant produces flexographic roll-fed and shrink sleeve labels.
The Company had experienced dramatic top line growth since 2008 and had consistently reinvested in the business to maintain state-of-the-art production capabilities, which positioned it well for continued growth. However, certain non-recurring, external factors impacted production beginning in 2018, thereby constraining liquidity.
SSG was retained by Walle to conduct a comprehensive and expedited marketing process to solicit offers from strategic and financial buyers. Fort Dearborn’s offer ultimately provided the best value for all stakeholders. SSG’s industry knowledge and experience running efficient sale processes enabled the Company to maximize the value of the enterprise and seamlessly transition its operations to Fort Dearborn.
