J.F. Lehman & Company Completes Sale of Atlantic Marine

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

 J.F. Lehman & Company completed the sale of Atlantic Marine Holding Company to a subsidiary of BAE Systems, Inc. Atlantic Marine is a provider of vessel maintenance, repair, overhaul and conversion (“MROC”) as well as marine fabrication services to government and commercial maritime customers. The company has operations in Mobile, AL, Jacksonville and Mayport, FL and Moss Point, MS. JFL has retained the company’s MROC operations in Boston, MA and Philadelphia, PA and a parcel of real estate in Mobile. The sale price was approximately $352 million, subject to customary post-closing adjustments. An investment affiliate of JFL acquired the business in August 2006.  Tig H. Krekel, Lead Director of Atlantic Marine and Vice Chairman of JFL, said, "We are pleased to sell Atlantic Marine to BAE Systems as we believe it will be a very complementary fit with its ship repair business and will benefit from BAE Systems’ global resources and excellent reputation."
J.P. Morgan, led by Managing Director Chris Ventresca, provided M&A advisory services for the seller in connection with the transaction. Mike Dyer and Peter Schnur led the Blank Rome legal team advising the seller.
