Jefferies analyst Kyle Joseph resumed coverage of Compass Diversified following the closure of the Marucci Sports acquisition with a Buy rating and $22 price target. The company having "opportunistically" divested two companies, issued a preferred in November, and "substantially" enhanced its balance sheet in 2019 leaves Compass being positioned "uniquely" in the current "potentially attractive deal environment," contends Joseph.

Compass Diversified to acquire Marucci Sports for $200M » 09:0203/0903/09/20
Compass Diversified announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Baton Rouge, Louisiana-based Marucci Sports for a purchase price of $200M. In 2009, Marucci Sports was founded by two former professional baseball players and an assistant White House Press Secretary. Over the past decade, hundreds of Big League players have chosen Marucci products, making Marucci one of the most popular bats in baseball. While continuing to increase market share in wood bats, Marucci has built on its devoted brand following by expanding the product portfolio to include a full suite of baseball equipment and apparel. The Company achieved approximately $14M - $15M of adjusted EBITDA for the trailing twelve month period ending December 31, 2019. Marucci Bat Company, which was launched in a backyard shed in 2004 with the goal of becoming the Number One Bat in the Big Leagues, was Marucci Sports' first acquisition. Marucci Sports has 230 employees across its brands. In 2017, Marucci acquired Victus, a King of Prussia, Pennsylvania-based baseball equipment manufacturer and distributor, widely recognized for their "edgy designs" and "big attitude." With vertically integrated wood bat manufacturing capabilities, an extensive global supplier group, and client base that includes Home Run Derby participants, MVPs and World Series winners, Marucci and Victus have become two of the leading brands in the market. Following the close of the transaction, Marucci will continue to be led by Kurt Ainsworth and its current leadership team. The Company will remain headquartered in Baton Rouge. Under the terms of the agreement, CODI will acquire a substantial tax asset associated with the structuring of the transaction. The acquisition is expected to close within the next 45 days, subject to customary closing conditions. Additional information on the acquisition will be available in CODI's current report on Form 8-K that will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
