Dominion Colour located in Canada, and its subsidiary companies in the U.S., UK and South America, manufacture, market and distribute a full range of coloured inorganic and organic pigments, as well as pigment preparations and dispersions, specialty coatings and digital inks.
NewPoint was engaged by the management team to assess the feasibility of an MBO, and then subsequently to develop an acquisition strategy, price range and capital structure. NewPoint led the negotiations with the Japan-based vendor and lenders.
The owner of Dominion Colour, a Japanese corporation, had determined that it was time to divest its North American subsidiary.
