Signature aligns extremely well with our targeted acquisition criteria: Signature has a leading market position, with branded and differentiated products, serving fast-growing end markets. Signature provides Myers an attractive complementary platform for long-term growth driven by world-wide investments in infrastructure over the next decade, The addition of Signature Systems immediately strengthens our profitability and cash flow profile and will support Myers in achieving our Horizon 1 goals of one billion dollars in revenue at a 15% EBITDA margin.

Signature builds on our current technology capabilities, and we are excited about the opportunities to drive even greater shareholder and customer value by applying the Commercial and Operational Excellence best practices of the Myers Business System.”

Signature has projected 2023 revenue, operating income, and Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $122 million, $24 million and $44 million, respectively.

Signature CEO Jeff Condino said, “We look forward to joining the Myers Industries team and for Signature to represent an important and complementary addition to the combined Company.

Our highly engineered ground protection products are well positioned for continued growth due to the conversion from wood products to composite matting solutions. Our vision for the future of Signature aligns with Myers long-term strategy and we are confident that our cultures are equally well aligned.”

Myers will acquire Signature for a total consideration of approximately $350 million, subject to customary adjustments. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2024 and to be neutral to slightly dilutive to US GAAP EPS in 2024, but then deliver EPS accretion of $0.20-$0.30 in 2025, $0.40 – $0.50 in 2026 and additional meaningful EPS accretion beyond 2026. Annualized run-rate operational and cost synergies of $8 million are expected to be fully captured by 2025.
