TopBuild Corp. (BLD Quick QuoteBLD ) has inked a deal with global private equity firm Advent International to acquire the latter’s Distribution International (“DI”) for $1 billion in cash. The transaction is expected to close in fourth-quarter 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.

President and chief executive officer of TopBuild, Robert Buck, said, “Following the closing of this transaction, TopBuild will be the leader of energy saving insulation solutions in all three major end-markets: residential, commercial, and industrial. Increasingly stricter energy codes, and the desire for energy efficient solutions and reductions in carbon footprint are driving demand, and we expect they will continue to be important growth drivers for our Company.”

Over the past six years, DI has expanded its market share through 11 acquisitions. Currently, it has 84 branches across the United States and 17 in Canada.

On a further encouraging note, DI will help TopBuild with a direct entry and immediate leadership position in the $5-billion mechanical insulation market. Also, DI’s MRO business provides a strong recurring revenue stream and fabrication capabilities offer additional value-add services for customers.

TopBuild expects $35-$40 million synergies from this buyout in a year, following the close of this transaction. On Jun 30, 2021, the combined company generated trailing 12-month revenues of $3.93 billion and adjusted EBITDA of! $647 million, on a pro-forma basis, inclusive of expected run-rate synergies of $35-$40 million.
