Highway Signs

August 23, 2023 (Birmingham, AL) – Addicus Capital Advisors proudly announces that it served as the advisor to Highway Signing Inc. ("HSI") in the recent formation of a new platform investment, Highway Partners Inc. ("HPI"). Addicus provided critical advisory expertise to aid in the strategic collaboration between Capital Alignment Partners ("CAP"), 1819 Partners, and HSI in forming HPI.

HPI brings together the industry-leading capabilities of HSI and the strategic financial support of CAP and 1819 Partners to effectively meet the growing demand for traffic control and pavement markings solutions across the Midwest. As part of this transformative deal, Matt Fatka, CEO of HSI, will transition to the role of CEO for HPI, while Shelly Jochim, an industry veteran, will assume the position of COO.

Drew Adams, Chief Enterprise Architect of Addicus, commented, "Addicus’ investment banking platform is built to give entrepreneurs access to the broader scope of growth opportunities.  We are honored to be a part of this transaction and believe that Highway Partners is in a position to prosper."

Since its foundation in 2007 in Omaha, NE, HSI has built an impressive legacy of safety and effectiveness, executing thousands of projects in both the public and private sectors. This proven track record will underpin HPI's expansion and innovation in the traffic control industry.

Jon Campbell, Managing Director at Addicus Capital Advisors, added, "The Highway Partners team had a natural alignment with 1819, both sharing a common vision for strategic growth. I am confident the partnership will create success and value for all present and future stakeholders. I am excited to see what the future holds."

This new venture is set to expand and strengthen the landscape of the traffic control industry in the Midwest. It aims to create supportive opportunities for all teams involved, reinforcing a strong cultural foundation, and facilitating significant growth.
