Press Release: As Digitization Rapidly Reshapes Industries, the Best Corporate Venturers Are Getting Even Better

BOSTON, Aug. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corporate venturing has evolved from a fringe activity to an important strategy that companies use to gain access to new technologies and accelerate innovation. Although corporate venturing—which includes investing corporate venture capital (CVC) as well as running innovation labs and incubators—has matured, there is still much room for improvement, according to a new report by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) titled How the Best Corporate Venturers Are Getting Even Better.
In a clear sign of how popular this strategy has become, the percentage of CVC investments as a share of global VC investments grew from 20% in 2012 to 26% in 2017. Fortunately, that stepped-up investment coincided with strong VC returns in Asia, the US, and Europe, and more than 95% of CVC units reported positive returns in 2017.Moreover, the benefits of CVC investing have flowed both ways. According to a BCG and Hello Tomorrow survey of more than 400 technology startups, respondents preferred to partner with corporations, as opposed to pure financial backers. Of the possible alliances, startups preferred partnering with corporations to gain market access (43%), technical knowledge and expertise (26%), and business knowledge and expertise (19%).Michael Brigl, a BCG partner and coauthor of the report, said: “Corporate venturing is a proven strategy for large companies that want to tap into new technologies and new ways of working. And their involvement benefits startups substantially, both in terms of capital and domain expertise.”Helping Startups Grow FasterDespite strong CVC returns, some senior leaders question the value of CVC investments because they rarely deliver meaningful top-line revenue. One way that CVC units can address this concern is by using their domain expertise and company resources to more actively help startups scale their businesses faster. More revenue and earnings more quickly are a boon for both sides.For example, in 2008, Coca-Cola acquired a 40% stake in Honest Tea, an organic tea company. Coca-Cola’s corporate venturing and emerging-brands unit leveraged its distribution network and scaled Honest Tea’s business from $38 million to $75 million in three years. That success led Coca-Cola to buy Honest Tea outright in 2011, and by 2015, ...

Press Release: Glatfelter Announces Definitive Agreement to Sell Specialty Papers Business Unit, Concluding Review of Strategic Alternatives

YORK, Pa., Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Glatfelter (NYSE: GLT) today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Specialty Papers Business Unit (“SPBU”) on a cash free and debt free basis to Lindsay Goldberg (the “Purchaser”) for a total sale price of $360 million.  The sale price includes approximately $320 million of cash proceeds and the assumption by the Purchaser of approximately $40 million of retiree healthcare liabilities.  The purchase price is subject to a customary working capital adjustment mechanism, as well as an adjustment for the retiree healthcare liabilities that the Purchaser will assume.  In addition, the Purchaser will assume approximately $250 million of pension liabilities relating to SPBU employees and receive approximately $300 million of related assets from Glatfelter’s existing pension plan.  The pension liability remaining with Glatfelter will continue to be significantly overfunded and no cash contributions are expected for the foreseeable future.  Net sales for SPBU for the 12 months ended June 30, 2018, were approximately $783 million.
“The divestiture of our Specialty Papers Business Unit represents a significant milestone for Glatfelter as we continue our transformation toward becoming a leading global engineered materials company.  We are focused on enhancing shareholder value by devoting our investments and resources to accelerating the growth potential of our Composite Fibers and Advanced Airlaid Materials business units,” said Dante C. Parrini, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  Mr. Parrini added, “We believe the sale of SPBU to Lindsay Goldberg creates an excellent opportunity for the business and its employees, who have remained steadfast in their dedication to Glatfelter and our customers.”Net cash proceeds from the transaction will be used to pay down debt, to fund the previously announced acquisition of Georgia-Pacific’s European nonwovens business, and for general corporate purposes. The transaction is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2018, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. As announced in February, the Glatfelter Board of Directors and management team commenced a review of potential strategic alternatives for the Specialty Papers business unit as part of their ongoing commitment to maximizing shareholder value. This definitive agreement represents the successful conclusion of that review process.Credit Suisse is serving as financial advisor and Shearman & Sterling as legal advisor to Glatfelter on the transaction.We have prepared additional information about this transactio...
