Cardone Family to Retain Ownership and Control of Cardone Industries, Inc.

Cardone Industries, a global automotive parts remanufacturer, and TPG Capital, L.P., a global private investment firm, have mutually agreed to end acquisition discussions relating to Cardone Industries’ North American operations.
The Cardone Family will retain ownership and control of the company.
“Cardone and TPG agree that the automotive aftermarket and the remanufacturing industry is fundamentally strong and represents tremendous potential for future growth, particularly through the strategic platform that we have developed,” said Michael Cardone, Jr., chairman and CEO of Cardone Industries. “We also agree that the timing for the acquisition is not appropriate. Accordingly, we have mutually agreed to end our discussions.”
The Cardone family will continue to remain actively involved in the company’s operations. Cardone recently divested its European operations in a separate transaction and will focus its efforts on its profitable North American operations, the optimization of its remanufacturing site in Mexico, and the completion of its new Dallas logistics hub.
“We look forward to continuing the strong relationships with our customers that we have built on a foundation of high quality products and service excellence,” said Cardone.
“Cardone’s reputation for quality products and reliability is unmatched in the remanufactured automotive industry, and we remain impressed with the company that the Cardone family and its employees have built over the past several decades,” said Kevin Burns, partner at TPG Capital. “We wish them the best as they continue to move forward and build upon their achievements.”
