Our investment platform comprises liquid and illiquid strategies, designed to capture deep-value opportunities on both sides of the Atlantic throughout the credit cycle.
Restructuring & Event-Driven Strategy
The largest domestic supplier of wheat protein in the United States, and a producer of renewable biofuels through reprocessed plant waste. SVP acquired the company in 2019 through a carve-out from its restructured parent and led an operational transformation that included a large plant expansion, significant customer growth through direct sales, and the development of a carbon sequestration project.
Europe’s leading manufacturer of value-added flexible foam and related products for bedding, flooring and auto markets. SVP acquired the company in 2016 and has helped lead the company to capitalize on its market position.
Global aviation services company with a core investment, leasing and asset management platform. Deucalion manages more than 180 aircraft on lease to over 80 airlines globally. SVP took full ownership of Deucalion in 2022 as part of the firm’s ongoing focus on dislocation and transformation in the aviation ecosystem.
Auto-Estradas Douro Litoral
Operates 73km of toll roads in the Douro region of Portugal that provide critical links to Porto. SVP became involved as the concession’s debt load became unsustainable, and ultimately took full ownership of the roads.
A leading provider of communications technology and networking services to the financial industry, which ranks all of the world’s 50 largest banks as customers. SVP acquired control of the company in an out-of-court restructuring and is leading a transformation that includes a transition to selling its primary communications products as cloud-based software, new product development, and operating efficiency.
A leading U.S. manufacturer of residential rainware and roofing accessories. SVP led an out-of-court recapitalization to acquire the company. Under SVP’s ownership, OmniMax has acquired more brands to extend its geographic reach, opened a new plant, and divested its European and non-residential businesses.
Central-European manufacturer of engineered wood for furniture and construction. SVP initially became involved in the company through a debt restructuring and subsequently took full control of the company in September 2019. The company has since been segmented into three divisions, an Eastern division, a Western division, and a proprietary resins business.
A leading vertically-integrated North American manufacturer and distributor of siding, windows, and accessories focused on the repair and remodeling market. SVP recently acquired the company from its former creditors after a restructuring. Since taking ownership, we have recruited in a highly-experienced new leadership team, who we are partnering with to drive growth, product improvements, and operational efficiency.
A leading global manufacturer of recycled content products and high-barrier protective packaging, including rigid and flexible plastic films. The company serves end markets in pharmaceuticals, health, specialty plastics and food, with over 30 sites in 18 countries and more than 5,000 employees. SVP helped the company restructure its debt and became a controlling shareholder, allowing the company to focus on growth, particularly in its pharmaceutical packaging segment.
SH 130 Concession Company
41-mile toll road between Austin and San Antonio, two of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the United States. SVP acquired control from the company’s prior lenders in a Chapter 11 restructuring. Under SVP ownership to date, we invested significant capital into the asset, improved efficiency, and helped make SH130 a local partner for infrastructure development. Since then, SH130 won a Federal grant for its innovative truck amenity project, progressed a major connector development in the State Congress, and became part of a TXDOT partnership for traffic relief.
At acquisition, GenOn was one of the largest independent power producers in the nation with over 30 plants from California to New York capable of serving nearly six million homes. SVP led the company’s Chapter 11 restructuring and acquired control by carving it out from a public company. Since then, SVP led a major transformation program, increasing reliability, unlocking cost efficiencies, and completing a full exit from coal-fired generation, resulting in the successful sales of many of GenOn’s cleaner-burning gas-fired plants to date.
Washington Prime Group
WPG is a U.S. REIT with a portfolio of approximately 90 retail real-estate assets, including high quality open-air centers and enclosed malls. When the company was adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, SVP led a debt restructuring and ongoing operational transformation of the business.
