U.S. Silica to acquire Cadre Services for $98M cash U.S. Silica Holdings announced that it has signed a stock purchase agreement to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Cadre Services for approximately $98M in cash. Closing is expected by the end of the month. The purchase price of $98M, less the net present value of approximately $14M in deferred tax assets, results in $84M of net consideration. Adjusted LTM EBITDA of $11.1M represents a purchase price multiple of 7.6 times. Projected 2015 Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $18M after synergies and the benefit of a full year of sales from the March capacity expansion represents a purchase price multiple of 4.7 times. This would result in Adjusted EPS accretion of 11c-13c per share in 2015.
U.S. Silica suspends EBITDA outlook on 'lack of visibility' U.S. Silica said, "Due to the current lack of visibility in our oil and gas business, the Company has decided to suspend guidance of Adjusted EBITDA until such time as we can gain more clarity around our customers' business activity levels and the associated demand for our products. Based on current market conditions, the Company anticipates that its capital expenditures for 2015 will be in a range of $100 million to $120 million."
