Corbel Capital Partners Realizes Investment in L.M.L. Estate Management

Corbel Capital Partners ("Corbel") is pleased to announce that Corbel has successfully realized an investment (the "Transaction") in the L.M.L. Estate Management portfolio of brands, which was sold to Crane Group, a family-owned investment holding and management company based in Columbus, Ohio.

The Company, which was re-named Fairwood Brands by Crane, is a Fort Wayne, Indiana-based portfolio of high-end design, installation, and maintenance services businesses for landscapes, hardscapes, and more. Since Corbel's investment in January 2022, the Company has expanded its geographic reach into three new regions via three add-on acquisitions, funded by Corbel, which significantly grew revenue and profitability. The exit represents an exceptional outcome for both the Company and Corbel, and substantially validates Corbel's ability to act as a strategic partner and capital provider beyond Corbel's initial investment.

"We are thrilled to have the passionate team at Crane Group as partners," said Jason Allevato, founder of Appalachian Capital Holdings, the sponsor equity partner which initially sourced the platform and initiated the portfolio build-out. "This transaction is an excellent example of Corbel's ability to creatively structure win-win capital solutions which create opportunities for operators to grow their businesses."

"The Corbel team was a pleasure to work with," said Scott Morris, co-founder of L.M.L. Estate Management. "Corbel's strategic thinking and capital support for the Company helped us continue to provide an unprecedented level of service to our growing customer base."
