Quanex Building Products Corporation, a leading supplier of window and door components, announced that it has significantly broadened its product portfolio and service model by entering into an agreement to acquire Woodcraft Industries, a premier supplier of doors and components to leading original equipment manufacturers in the kitchen and bathroom cabinet industry. The all-cash transaction, which is expected to close in the 4th calendar quarter of 2015, is valued at approximately $248.5M and will be funded with a combination of cash on-hand, a new asset-based revolving credit facility and a new term loan, each of which will be entered into prior to the closing of the acquisition.  Woodcraft is expected to add $240M in revenues at 13% EBITDA margins to Quanex's growing portfolio as a leading OEM component supplier in Building Products.

For more than 70 years, Woodcraft has been recognized as one of the largest and most prestigious providers of hardwood and engineered wood doors and components to prominent kitchen and bath cabinet manufacturers throughout North America. The company has a strong record of financial performance, including double-digit operating margins through the last downturn. Woodcraft's 13 production facilities and four distribution locations throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico ensure industry-leading capabilities, responsiveness, and quality assurance for a broad range of products, including hardwood doors, hardwood components, engineered wood and drawer components.

Wells Fargo Securities served as exclusive financial advisor and Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP served as legal counsel to Quanex Building Products in connection with the transaction.
