The transaction allowed the owners to retain a meaningful ownership stake post-transaction, and benefit from a flexible post-transaction capital structure to provide DMS with the necessary capital to further grow the business and better serve its clients.
The direct marketing industry is a permanent and growing $50 billion industry. We believe that DMS can continue to grow and become entrenched as the industry leader within the mid-volume direct marketing segment. Caymus Equity believes that, under the exceptional leadership of the management team, DMS can build upon the recent strong business momentum and capture additional growth opportunities by offering a differentiated end-to-end offering through a cohesive team approach and expand further into digital services.
We worked with the board and management to develop a strategic sales plan, targeting new customers in new industry verticals and expanding the breadth of direct marketing services to existing customers. We have also worked with the DMS management team to develop a plan that outlines steps for DMS to expand further into digital services, in order to gain new customers and provide existing customers with a more complete direct marketing service offering.
