Maumee, OH– January 10, 2011 – Key Principal Partners Corp. (“KPP”), a $1 billion private investment firm, announced today the realization of its investment in Kellermeyer Building Services, LLC (Kellermeyer). Kellermeyer (www.kbs-clean.com) is a leading provider of “self-perform” contract cleaning services primarily to large format retailers throughout the United States.
KPP led a $36 million subordinated debt and preferred equity investment in Kellermeyer in February 2007 through an innovative structure that allowed the Company’s management team to re-acquire a controlling interest in the business. KPP worked in close partnership with management on various strategic issues, contributing in part to the greater than 30% revenue growth that Kellermeyer experienced during the investment despite a difficult underlying economic climate.
