EVANSTON, Ill., April 2, 2018-- Silver Oak Services Partners, LLC ("Silver Oak"), a leading lower-middle market private equity firm focused exclusively on business, healthcare and consumer services companies, announced today that it has completed the sale of its equity interest in The Tranzonic Companies ("Tranzonic" or the "Company") to Pittsburgh-based PNC Riverarch Capital ("PNC").

Silver Oak made its original investment in Tranzonic in July 2013. During Silver Oak's ownership, Tranzonic undertook numerous initiatives to strengthen and improve the business, including: promoting Tom Friedl to CEO, expanding the sales team to drive organic growth, investing in additional equipment to accommodate growth and improve margins, developing and successfully launching multiple new products, and completing two add-on acquisitions in core product categories targeting growing end-markets.

"We are extremely proud of our partnership with the Tranzonic management team," said Greg Barr, Managing Partner at Silver Oak. "They have driven steady top and bottom line growth over the last five years and established the Company as a proven acquisition growth platform. Tranzonic is well positioned for the future, and we wish the team well as they continue to execute on the Company's strategic growth plan."

Tom Friedl, CEO of Tranzonic, noted, "With Silver Oak's active support and guidance, we generated significant growth while continuing to enhance the value we bring to our customers. We look forward to building upon this success with our new partners at PNC Riverarch."
