NewPoint was retained by Flying Colours Corp. ("FCC") to execute a recapitalization in order to buy out a minority shareholder and provide some liquidity to the majority shareholder. NewPoint worked closely with the founding majority shareholder to understand the company’s needs and opportunities as well as the shareholders’ objectives. NewPoint determined a suitable capital structure, introduced a select number of potential investors, negotiated the term sheet, and assisted with the negotiation of key agreements related to the transaction.
After analysing a range of options, it was decided that the company would partner with New Heritage Capital, a group with prior experience in the aerospace industry and a prior investment in Canada with another client of NewPoint. The transaction allowed the existing majority shareholder to retain a majority interest in FCC while still realizing some liquidity and gaining a partner for the future growth of the business.
