NEW YORKSept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Backcast Partners Management, LLC (“Backcast”), a provider of capital for both middle market private equity and non-private equity owned companies, is pleased to announce its most recent investment supporting the acquisition by Turnspire Capital Partners (“Turnspire”) of the Daniel Measurement and Control business (“Daniel” or the “Company”) from Emerson Electric Co. (NYSE: EMR).

Headquartered in Houston with a state-of-the-art, strategically located manufacturing facility in Chihuahua, Mexico, Daniel is a global leader in providing flow and energy measurement technologies and services to the natural gas and refined hydrocarbon industries. With an 85-year heritage as the preeminent supplier of engineered solutions for flow measurement in custody transfer applications, Daniel is the most trusted brand for customers across the energy and hydrocarbon supply chain.

Backcast Managing Partner Mark Gudis said “Daniel is the global leader in the energy test and measurement instrumentation sector with best-in-class technology and manufacturing excellence, which we expect to be significantly augmented with the addition of Keith Barnard, a seasoned CEO in energy services.  We are excited to once again support Turnspire as they pursue attractive organic growth opportunities and a strong pipeline of strategic acquisition opportunities, particularly in light of Turnspire’s strong track record of investing in carveouts.”

Backcast’s investment consisted of senior secured debt and an equity co-investment. “Backcast has once again been an ideal partner to work with on this transaction,” said Abel S. Osorio, a Partner at Turnspire. “This was a complex and iterative transaction and Backcast’s significant industry knowledge, ability to understand the complex nature of a carveout into a standalone company, and conviction to get it across the finish line reinforced why they are such a value-added partner.”

Backcast was represented in the transaction by Greenberg Traurig LLP.
