The VMC Group (“VMC”), a world leader in innovative shock, seismic, vibration and engineering services, today announced a $32 million minority recapitalization for purposes of refinancing its existing senior and junior debt, and preferred equity securities. Additionally, the Company announced two new acquisitions in furtherance of its plan to become the preeminent seismic and vibration isolation business in the world. VMC secured a new credit facility from East West Bank and attracted Seacoast Capital as a new minority partner and preferred shareholder. VMC acquired Advanced Antivibration Components (AAC) from Designatronics, located in New Hyde Park, NY, as well as a majority control position in Dynamic Certification Laboratories (DCL) of Reno, NV. The recapitalization and acquisitions closed simultaneously on May 8, 2015.

“We are pleased to have completed a deal of this magnitude. It is a tribute to our people and Company to be able to complete these highly complex transactions in one closing,” states John Wilson, Jr., Chief Executive Officer of The VMC Group. “We are excited to have East West and Seacoast as our new partners. They provided the capital necessary to support the acquisitions of AAC and DCL which will accelerate our next stage of growth, specifically in web-based B to B sales and the expansion of our testing and measurements business. East West was a reliable and diligent partner throughout the entire process and Seacoast moved decisively to complete the transaction within the targeted terms and timeframe. These deals, in addition to ramping up our expansion, strengthen our balance sheet and provide capital for future acquisitions. East West and Seacoast share our sense of urgency to execute on our strategy and continue on our quest to become a great company.”
