Dublin, OH (PRWEB) June 11, 2008
Dominion Homes, Inc., a homebuilder serving Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky, today announced that it has completed the merger transaction that was approved by its shareholders at a special meeting on May 30, 2008. The company's new principal equity owners are an investment group comprised of Silver Point Capital, L.P. and Angelo Gordon & Co, L.P., Dominion's primary lenders, and BRC Properties Inc., which is controlled by Dominion Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Douglas G. Borror.
Dominion, which will maintain its corporate office in Dublin, Ohio, will continue to be led by Mr. Borror and William G. Cornely, Chief Operating Officer. The homebuilder, which employs approximately 200 team members, will continue to serve the Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana markets while seeking opportunities to expand into other markets. Dominion begins its new operation as a private company, in full compliance with the terms and covenants of its credit facilities. It has been capitalized by a new investor group with substantial financial resources, with the balance being minimal third party debt.
"Through this transaction, we have significantly strengthened Dominion's balance sheet and positioned the company as a platform on which to grow both internally and through acquisitions," said Douglas G. Borror, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The company will now look to leverage its presence in its core homebuilding markets of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana and enter new markets. Our post-merger capital structure and the strong capital base of our supportive investors position Dominion as one of the strongest builders in its core markets."
