Lincoln International Represents The Riverside Company in the First Exit from its Asia-Pacific Fund
Lincoln International, a leading global mid-market investment bank, has announced that Shinsouki Co., Ltd. ("Shinsouki" or the "Company"), a Japanese coin parking lot operator, has been sold to iSigma Capital, a private equity unit of Marubeni Corporation. Shinsouki was a portfolio company of The Riverside Company (“Riverside”).
Shinsouki is the largest operator of parking lots in Niigata City, Japan. Through the 2009 acquisition of MAOS, the Company added a strong presence in Tokyo. Most of the lots the Company operates are unmanned and built on leased land in high-density areas. The Company combines deep knowledge of its geographies with close relations with landowners to develop lots in favorable and profitable areas. Shinsouki and MAOS collectively operate and manage more than 8,000 parking spaces.
Lincoln International acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Riverside and Shinsouki, working closely with the Company’s management team and shareholders throughout the sale process. This included providing advisory expertise and managing the preparatory, marketing, negotiation and due diligence phases of the transaction.
