CHICAGO – May River Capital today announced that its portfolio company Hunt Valve has been acquired by Fairbanks Morse Defense, a portfolio company of Arcline Investment Management.  

May River Capital acquired Hunt Valve in 2015. Since that time, May River Capital and Hunt Valve management have driven growth in the business through a combination of organic initiatives, supported by May River Capital’s continued investment in talent and physical capital projects, as well as the success of a targeted buy-and-build strategy leading to the integration of three complementary add-on acquisitions.  Today, Hunt Valve is an established supplier of complex flow control solutions and electromechanical actuators to critical United States and Canadian Naval platforms.   

Harris Williams served as lead financial advisor to May River Capital in connection with the transaction, with Duff and Phelps providing additional financial advisory services.  Paul Hastings served as legal advisor to May River Capital.
