“It was a pleasure working with Imperial and Kenex on the transaction. Together, we structured a debt facility that’ll allow the Company to bring the manufacturing process in-house. We look forward to reviewing future growth capex opportunities with both Imperial and Kenex.” – Jeffrey Pfeffer, Managing Partner at CapX Partners
Imperial Frozen Foods was introduced to CapX Partners by its Chicago based private equity owners, Kenex Holdings. CapX learned that Imperial had generated consistent growth in recent years, but continued to be hindered by capacity constraints. Kenex and Imperial approached CapX to procure and finance packaging equipment that will allow Imperial to transition into a self-manufacturer, which will in turn alleviate capacity constraints.
