DLJ Merchant Banking Partners selected BlackArch Partners to advise on its divestiture of Total Safety based on BlackArch’s intimate knowledge of the Company and its industry, and BlackArch’s access to prospective buyers.

BlackArch's Customized Solution

BlackArch delivered tailored messages to prospective acquirors throughout the world emphasizing the unrivaled breadth of services and technical expertise Total Safety provides to the world’s most discriminating consumers of safety and compliance services and solutions.


The marketing process generated interest from a strong field of potential strategic and financial partners; Total Safety was acquired by Warburg Pincus, a leading global private equity firm with more than $30 billion in assets under management, with the intent of executing an accelerated growth plan.

“Total Safety is a complex business competing in a global marketplace. We valued BlackArch’s guidance and appreciated its access to potential partners. BlackArch orchestrated an effi cient process and we believe that we have a world-class partner for our company’s next stage of its growth.”
