WILLSCOT MOBILE MINI HOLDINGS ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT TO DIVEST TANK AND PUMP SEGMENT TO KINDERHOOK INDUSTRIES
PHOENIX (August 22, 2022) - WillScot Mobile Mini Holdings Corp. (“WillScot Mobile Mini Holdings” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: WSC), the North American leader in innovative flexible workspace and portable storage solutions, today announced a definitive agreement, whereby the Company will divest its Tank and Pump segment to private equity firm Kinderhook Industries (“Kinderhook”) for an enterprise value of approximately $323 million, subject to customary post-closing adjustments. Proceeds from the sale will be used to support ongoing reinvestment in the Company’s core Modular and Storage operating segments and other capital allocation priorities. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approval and is expected to close in the third quarter of 2022. Eric John, Senior Vice President of the Tank and Pump segment, will serve as the Chief Executive Officer of the newly independent business.
Brad Soultz, Chief Executive Officer of WillScot Mobile Mini Holdings, commented, "Today’s announcement is aligned with our long-term strategy of optimizing our core Modular and Storage segments and staying laser-focused on the growth levers that we articulated at our November 2021 Investor Day. Consistent with our capital allocation framework, we expect to redeploy the proceeds from this transaction to compound growth and returns in our core segments through organic reinvestment, continued tuck-in acquisitions, repurchases of our Common Stock, and de-leveraging within our target range. As most recently evident in our second quarter earnings, the opportunities to reinvest in our core Modular and Storage segments are abundant and attractive, and we can pursue them even more effectively by further concentrating our human and financial capital. We expect to update our financial guidance upon closing of the transaction and anticipate any impact to our third quarter of 2022 operating results to be minimal. I want to thank Eric and the entire team for their hard work and dedication to WillScot Mobile Mini and expect they will flourish as an independent company.”
Eric John, Chief Executive Officer of Tank and Pump, said, "This is a new and exciting journey for our entire team. We look forward to partnering with Kinderhook, which has deep experience helping industry leading middle market businesses navigate their next chapter of growth. Through our partnership and as a standalone business, we will have dedicated leadership and financial capital to build upon our industry-leading customer value proposition and accelerate investments in growth with greater financial and operational flexibility. We are incredibly excited for the Tank & Pump organization and the future of our business.”
