BUSINESS PRESS RELEASE

Release Date: Mar. 21, 2024

 

New York, New York — Oak Hill Advisors (“OHA”) served as the Left Lead Arranger for the private financing of STV Group, Inc. (“STV”), which is partnered with The Pritzker Organization (“TPO”). STV is a leading provider of engineering and consulting services focused on infrastructure and transportation projects across North America. The financing proceeds are being used to support a refinancing of STV’s existing syndicated first lien capital structure, fund an acquisition and help support STV’s continued growth. OHA is one the largest holders of the total facility, which is over $500 million in size.

 

OHA’s strong relationship with TPO positioned it to source and engage early with the borrower to structure an optimal financing solution, having recently served as Lead Arranger for the private unitranche refinancing of Mammoth Holdings, also partnered with TPO. Additionally, OHA was a natural partner given its deep experience investing in the engineering and consulting industry.

 

“With its solution-oriented leadership and ability to show up in scale, OHA is a valued strategic partner as we progress on the development of our platform investments,” said Larry Tarschis, Managing Director at TPO. “We look forward to collaborating with OHA to advance the long-term growth plans for STV, with a focus on expanding its geographic footprint, service lines and continuing to support the significant growth in infrastructure investment.”

 

This transaction was sourced through OHA’s strategic direct lending partnership with BMO Capital Markets (“BMO”), who served as Administrative Agent and Joint Lead Arranger.
