TopBuild Corp. (BLD Quick QuoteBLD ) has inked a deal with global private equity firm Advent International to acquire the latter’s Distribution International (“DI”) for $1 billion in cash. The transaction is expected to close in fourth-quarter 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.
President and chief executive officer of TopBuild, Robert Buck, said, “Following the closing of this transaction, TopBuild will be the leader of energy saving insulation solutions in all three major end-markets: residential, commercial, and industrial. Increasingly stricter energy codes, and the desire for energy efficient solutions and reductions in carbon footprint are driving demand, and we expect they will continue to be important growth drivers for our Company.”
DI, which was founded in 1986, is the leading specialty distributor of mechanical insulation solutions for industrial and commercial end markets. Over the past six years, DI has expanded its market share through 11 acquisitions. Currently, it has 84 branches across the United States and 17 in Canada. In the last 12 months, half of DI’s pro-forma revenues of approximately $747 million were tied to the Maintenance, Repair and Operations (“MRO”) business, and the other half was related to new construction activity.
This bolt-on acquisition highly complements TopBuild’s strategic alliances for bolstering inorganic growth and expanding market share. On a further encouraging note, DI will help TopBuild with a direct entry and immediate leadership position in the $5-billion mechanical insulation market. Also, DI’s MRO business provides a strong recurring revenue stream and fabrication capabilities offer additional value-add services for customers.
TopBuild expects $35-$40 million synergies from this buyout in a year, following the close of this transaction. On Jun 30, 2021, the combined company generated trailing 12-month revenues of $3.93 billion and adjusted EBITDA of $647 million, on a pro-forma basis, inclusive of expected run-rate synergies of $35-$40 million.
Post the transaction’s completion, TopBuild’s net debt to pro forma adjusted EBITDA is expected to be 2.5 times pre-synergies.

How To Invest
When spending dried up, this group was hit hard. Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) went from a profit of $3.5 billion in 2014 to a painful loss of $5.8 billion in 2016. But the pendulum is swinging. As any good salesman will tell you, it’s much easier to close deals when your customers have more cash in their pocket. And as we just discussed, big oil producers have $425 billion locked, loaded and ready to fire.

Prepared Remarks Questions and Answers Call Participants
- [By Matthew DiLallo]
BP Midstream Partners has agreed to acquire interests in three assets from BP in a transaction valued at $468 million. The first asset is Mardi Gras, a joint venture (JV) with Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A)(NYSE:RDS-B) and its MLP, Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), which operates four offshore pipelines. BP Midstream already owned 20% of BP’s interest in the JV but will now hold 65% of that stake. It’s an important system that the partners have recently expanded so that it can support their new projects in the Gulf. They include Shell’s Appomattox platform, which should start up next year, and BP’s Thunder Horse North West Expansion, Atlantis Phase three, and Mad Dog 2, which will begin in 2019, 2020, and 2021, respectively.

Thanks in part to higher oil prices, the average energy stock in the S&P 500 is up nearly 17% over the past year. However, those improving market conditions haven’t taken the entire sector higher. Three laggards that stand out are fast-growing, high-yielding MLPs Antero Midstream Partners (NYSE:AM), Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), and EQT Midstream Partners (NYSE:EQM), which have all lost more than 10% of their value over the past year. Because of that, these MLPs look like compelling options for income-seeking investors to consider.
