Houston, Texas-based Clovis Point Capital exits its entire position in CPaT Global, the market leader in aviation training solutions

Clovis Point Capital, LLC (“Clovis Point”) announced today that it has exited its position in CPaT Global, LLC (“CPaT Global” or the “Company”). CPaT Global, headquartered in Spring, Texas, is an industry-leading software company that provides airlines, training organizations, aircraft maintenance companies, and aviation professionals distance training solutions delivered through its proprietary learning management system platform. Over the course of Clovis Point’s investment, enterprise value increased 16.2x at a CAGR of 55.6%.

Clovis Point acquired CPaT Global in 2015 and partnered with a new management team to expand the Company’s global presence while driving topline growth and expanding profitability. With Clovis Point’s support, the Company executed on many strategic initiatives, including the development of a next generation learning management system and the industry’s first content design software platform, CPaT Invent. The investment also enabled CPaT Global to build the world-class team necessary to scale its sales, marketing, product and technology organizations.

“Clovis Point has been an invaluable partner. Their involvement was instrumental in helping guide new product development, validation of new features, go-to-market strategy and other strategic initiatives that enabled the growth we have experienced over the last six years. The overwhelming success of CPaT Global is a clear example of Clovis Point’s business transformation strategy as a means for generating market leading investment returns” said Brian Bergeron, Clovis Point Partner and former President of CPaT Global.

With a best-in-class product platform and a robust go-to-market strategy, CPaT Global added more than 150 new customers and achieved approximately 400 percent revenue growth over the course of Clovis Point’s investment.
“We are very proud of what the senior leadership team that we recruited to manage and run the business has been able to accomplish over the last 6 years,” said Robert Shuford, Managing Partner at Clovis Point. “It has been an extremely gratifying experience to see the Company not only continue pushing the boundaries of innovation in aviation distance learning but also the operating results that they achieved as a biproduct of these efforts. CPaT Global is well positioned for continued success, and we wish them the best as they embark on the next stage of their growth.”

Latham & Watkins LLP acted as legal counsel to Clovis Point.
