Commonwealth Venture Funding Group has sold Antaya Technologies to Delphi Automotive
Lincoln International (“Lincoln”), a leading global mid-market investment bank, today announced that Commonwealth Venture Funding Group (“CVFG”) and management have sold Antaya Technologies, Corp. (“Antaya” or the “Company”) to Delphi Automotive PLC (NYSE:DLPH; “Delphi”). Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. Lincoln acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Antaya.
Headquartered in Cranston, Rhode Island, Antaya is the largest manufacturer of on-glass connectors for the automotive glass industry in North America, with a growing customer base in China and Europe. The Company also supplies controlled soldering equipment, known as Q-Boxes, which in combination with the Company’s pre-soldered clad terminals, significantly reduce variation in the soldering process. Antaya currently offers the only field-tested, lead-free solution in the industry and is poised to achieve significant growth as recent regulations in Europe take effect requiring all new vehicles to use lead-free on-glass connectors. Antaya’s products serve a broad range of applications, including power terminals, antenna assemblies, keyless entry and tire pressure monitoring, and other custom connector assemblies for automotive electronics.
Lincoln advised the Company in connection with the marketing, negotiation and due diligence phases of the transaction. “Lincoln employed a hands-on approach and worked closely with the management team to prepare for each stage of the sale process. Lincoln also leveraged its deep automotive and truck experience to identify the best acquirers for Antaya and to strongly advocate for the key investment merits of the business,” said John Pereira, Antaya’s Chief Executive Officer and President.
William Booth, Vice President of CVFG, stated, “Lincoln executed a highly disciplined sale process involving a thoughtfully selected group of potential strategic acquirers. They provided expert advice throughout each step of the transaction, which resulted in outstanding value and terms for Antaya’s shareholders.”
