AUSTIN, Texas – Acacia Partners (“Acacia”), an Austin, Texas based investment firm, recently completed a growth equity investment in Nations Roof, LLC (“Nations Roof” or “Company”), a nationwide provider of commercial roofing services. Acacia’s investment will help the Company continue its significant organic growth across the U.S. and accelerate its growing service and repair division.

“After fifteen years of consistent growth, the time is right to bring on a like-minded financial partner to help take our business to the next level.” said Rich Nugent, Founder and CEO of Nations Roof. “We set out to find a partner that shared our core values, including a long-term time horizon and a commitment to maintaining a strong balance sheet with little debt. It is very hard to find an investment firm with this mindset, but we feel we have with Acacia Partners. From our first meeting through closing, it was clear that our cultures were aligned and that we will be a great fit for each other.”

Brad Johl of Acacia Partners noted, “Rich and his team have built an incredible company with an extraordinary culture. From day one we have seen so many similarities between Nations Roof and our prior successful partnerships. We could not be more excited to partner with Rich and the Nations Roof team to build on the foundation they have created.”

“Nations Roof has created an impressive value proposition for its customers. A nationwide presence with its own workforce makes the company a reliable provider for both national and local property owners. We see so much opportunity to leverage this advantage to continue Nation Roof’s attractive growth.” said Jeff Sokol of Acacia Partners.

Greg Maletsky of Acacia Partners said, “We are excited to accelerate investments in both the Company’s infrastructure and team to strengthen their service offering and geographical presence. In particular, we look forward to expanding the recently developed RoofCare business to add value for existing customers and attract new customers that are not currently in need of a full roof replacement.”

The Company was advised by M&T Investment Banking Group.
