New York – April 8, 2020– AEA Investors’ (“AEA” or the “Firm”) Middle Market Private Equity team announced today that its fund has closed the acquisition of SitelogIQ (the “Company”). SitelogIQ is a leading independent energy services and facility solutions provider to the municipal, university, school, and hospital, and commercial and industrial end markets in the United States. The Company completes projects that increase the energy efficiency of existing facilities via a variety of energy conservation measures which leads to cost savings, improved facility operations, and reduced environmental impact. Projects include both core (e.g., efficient HVAC, LED lighting, solar, etc.), and ancillary (e.g., roofing, windows, etc.) energy conservation measures. These projects create positive societal impacts via enhanced learning and work environments with brighter lighting and improved air quality while reducing energy consumption. AEA’s investment in SitelogIQ provides the opportunity to partner with a strong senior management team in the highly attractive energy services and facility solutions industry, which is benefitting from underlying growth trends such as aging infrastructure, increased focus on green initiatives, and steady replacement demand as well as upgrades to higher performance equipment.
