Mosaic Capital Partners Backs Plasticard Locktech International’s Acquisition of PSA

CHARLOTTE – November 7, 2016
Mosaic Capital Partners, LLC (“Mosaic”) is pleased to announce its investment of $12.4 million in mezzanine debt to Plasticard Locktech International (“PLI” or the “Company”). PLI, the world’s largest hotel keycard and gift and loyalty card manufacturer, utilized this capital in its acquisition of PSA, a premier closed loop card manufacturer and provider of holistic card marketing solutions.

Peter Krauss, CEO of PLI, commented, “We are extremely excited to welcome PSA to the PLI family. We couldn’t have done this without the help of our financial partners, and with PLI being employee-owned, Mosaic’s ESOP expertise made them a great fit.”

Steve Buchanan, one of Mosaic’s Managing Partners, added, “The employee owners at PLI have done a standout job building and growing their business, and we’re thrilled to be a part of that process going forward. PSA’s synergies with PLI puts the company in an excellent position to continue their remarkable achievements.”

PSA’s former President and CEO, Jim Cyze, will now become Executive Vice President of Business & Product Development at PLI. The acquisition expanded PLI’s production volume from 1.1 billion cards per year to 1.6 billion cards, with an even greater capacity for production. This acquisition doubles the PLI facilities to four in two new locations and grows the production space from 300,000 to 450,000 square feet across the country.

Other funding sources included JPMorgan and Salem Investment Partners.
