NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CSG Partners, LLC, the New York-based boutique investment bank, served as the exclusive financial advisor to Triple Canopy, Inc. on its recent transition to becoming 100% owned by its Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).
Triple Canopy is a global provider of mission support, security, training and advisory services. More than 80 percent of Triple Canopy's workforce is made up of former military personnel. The company excels at delivering complete program management solutions to help clients achieve critical mission objectives in challenging locations worldwide.
George Thacker III, a Managing Director who led the transaction team at CSG Partners, commented: "It was a privilege working with Triple Canopy and helping them meet their long-term objectives as a company. The ESOP is a strategic liquidity structure for shareholders that also provides exceptional benefits to employees and positions the company for long term success."
"This is an exciting time for Triple Canopy and we are proud to become a majority veteran, employee-owned company," said Triple Canopy CEO Ignacio Balderas. "Delivering quality services to governments and multinational companies in challenging locations remains the mainstay of our business success."
Triple Canopy's new ESOP retirement structure will enable employees to share in the company's growth and success by earning shares in the business. According to Balderas, "Building an ownership culture with our newly established ESOP will strengthen our employee base and enhance the retention of experienced personnel worldwide. I cannot think of a better way to drive quality across an organization than to give employees ownership of the company and let them directly participate in its growth and success."
