Evergreen Industries LLC announced that it has completed the sale of its investment position in IAB Solutions, LLC (“IAB”), in connection with the strategic investment in IAB by an affiliate of Skillman Management & Capital, LLC (“Skillman”).

Kenneth E. Green, Co-Chairman of IAB, stated, “We are very pleased to have partnered with Evergreen, who provided the support and guidance for us in 2007 to build additional infrastructure and financial controls enabling us to transition from an owner operated business to professionally managed organization with sustainable growth prospects.”
Steve Dempsey, Partner of Gregrock Capital Group, which also sold its position in IAB, stated “When the financial crisis had an impact on IAB in 2008, Evergreen rolled up their sleeves and provided critical strategic guidance and involvement to assist management succeed despite the downturn.
