KEEPS Corporation Completes a Minority Recapitalization Through a Significant Equity Investment From SSM Partners

LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2021-- KEEPS Corporation, the provider of North America’s premier automotive service and parts analytics and pricing optimization system, announced today that it has received a significant equity investment from SSM Partners, a Memphis based private equity firm focused on growth companies. KEEPS will use the financing to continue its expansion, accelerate product innovation and invest in additional sales and marketing resources. The company will continue to evaluate strategic acquisition opportunities, with additional equity capital available from SSM.

“In spite of the challenges created by the Global Pandemic, KEEPS was able to offer its service center customers a compelling value proposition that resulted in 2020 revenue growth of 35% over 2019 with revenues approaching $20M,” said Leigh Silver, CEO of KEEPS. “The experience and resources of the team at SSM Partners will perfectly complement our focus on continued product innovation, category-defining leadership and an engaged Customer Base,” added Les Silver, Executive Chairman of KEEPS.

Hunter Witherington, a Managing Partner at SSM, said, “We believe that the Service and Parts segments of the Auto Industry represent the major opportunity for both the shops and their suppliers to grow and prosper. We are delighted to partner with the Silver Family who have a phenomenal track record of success in this space.”

With this investment, Hunter Witherington and Ed Nenon from SSM have joined KEEPS Board of Directors.

Further financial terms of this deal were not disclosed.

Portico Capital served as exclusive financial advisor and Jackson Walker LLP served as legal counsel to KEEPS with respect to this transaction.
