C.W. Downer & Co. Advises POP Displays USA, Inc., on its Sale to CounterPoint Capital Partners

BOSTON, June 13, 2016 – C.W. Downer & Co., a leading global middle-market investment bank, is pleased to announce that POP Displays USA, Inc. (“POP Displays” or the “Company”) has been acquired by CounterPoint Capital Partners (“CounterPoint”). The transaction closed on May 11, 2016 and the terms of the deal were not disclosed. C.W. Downer acted as the exclusive financial advisor to POP Displays for this transaction.

POP Displays, based in Yonkers, New York, is one of the largest providers of customized retail display solutions in the United States. The Company produces semi-permanent retail displays and point-of-purchase fixtures for leading consumer brands and retailers. These products enhance the consumer’s shopping experience and play a major role in communicating key brand messages that influence purchasing decisions. Greg Fanikos, Director at C.W. Downer, noted that “POP Displays is one of the few display companies that provides true ‘turnkey’ services to its clients, ranging from initial concepts and design through engineering, manufacturing, assembly and kitting. They have the ability to seamlessly execute complex, national programs for a range of clients that include leading cosmetics brands, retailers, and consumer products companies.”

C.W. Downer’s international retail services team managed the divestiture process for POP Displays. C.W. Downer also advised POP Displays on its 2006 sale to a private equity firm. “We enjoyed working again with the management of POP Displays on this mandate. We are delighted our process led to a transaction with CounterPoint that will position the Company for further success and continued growth,” said Wade Aust, Managing Director at C.W. Downer & Co.

“The transaction involving POP Displays is the fifth mandate that we have closed in the retail fixtures and displays market since 2014,” added David Waldstein, Vice President at C.W. Downer. “We are pleased we could leverage our expertise in this sector to achieve another successful transaction.”

The C.W. Downer & Co. team assisting POP Displays with the sale included Mr. Wade Aust (Managing Director), Mr. Greg Fanikos (Director) and Mr. David Waldstein (Vice President).
