“Platinum has an extensive track record of acquiring corporate divestitures and maximizing their potential as standalone businesses. CheckView will act as a platform acquisition and allow us to focus on the core business while pursuing organic growth initiatives and strategic add-ons in a highly fragmented space.”
The divestiture follows an extensive review of Checkpoint’s businesses in 2012 at which time the Company’s Board of Directors determined that the U.S. and Canadian CheckView business will better serve its customers as an independent, entrepreneurial and more focused organization.
Checkpoint Systems’ President and Chief Executive Officer, George Babich, said, “We are pleased to have reached an agreement. Platinum Equity is a global investment firm with a unique focus on business operations and a strong track record helping companies reach their full potential. The firm’s financial resources and operational expertise will present the CheckView business with tremendous new opportunities. We are committed to support CheckView throughout the sale process to ensure an orderly transition with full continuity of service to customers.”
“We are excited about the prospects for CheckView under our ownership,” said Platinum Equity Principal Jason Leach. “Platinum has an extensive track record of acquiring corporate divestitures and maximizing their potential as standalone businesses. CheckView will act as a platform acquisition and allow us to focus on the core business while pursuing organic growth initiatives and strategic add-ons in a highly fragmented space.”
Checkpoint will continue to pursue its redefined strategy to provide solutions that improve merchandise availability in retail stores. The Company’s portfolio includes electronic article surveillance systems and services to combat theft, radio frequency identification products to improve inventory accuracy, and tickets, tags and labels for merchandising apparel.
The U.S. and Canadian CheckView business was reported as discontinued operations in Checkpoint’s fourth quarter and full-year 2012 earnings report released on March 5, 2013 and in the Company’s 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
