BOSTON, MA. Fort Point Capital ("Fort Point") announced the completion of the recapitalization of its portfolio company, Church Services ("Church" or the "Company"). Fort Point initially acquired a majority interest in Church, a leading provider of residential repair and maintenance services in Texas, in March 2012. The recently completed recapitalization consisted solely of senior debt provided by funds managed by Deerpath Capital Management, LP and enabled Church to refinance its existing senior and mezzanine debt.
"The new capital structure significantly reduces Church’s debt service obligations and allows the Company to have the flexibility to pursue its add-on acquisition and greenfield strategies as well as to invest in its fleet and technology initiatives," said Christina Pai, a Partner at Fort Point. "We look forward to continuing to grow the Company with our new partners."
"We appreciate Fort Point’s financial expertise and support in helping us to align our capital structure with our strategic and operational goals," said Brian Alexson, Chief Executive Officer of Church Services.
