London-Based Nova Capital Management Opens North American HQ in Chicago to 
Bolster North American Business 
David Jacobs, Former Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank Executive Joins
Company as Investment Partner 
CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 --  Nova Capital Management
Ltd ("Nova"), the specialist acquirer of corporate and private equity
portfolios, announced today that it has opened its North American
headquarters in Chicago. Nova has also hired seasoned investment
banking professional David A. Jacobs to support the company's
accelerating business growth in North America as an Investment
Partner. Experts in closing complex multi-jurisdictional transactions
with the goal of re-energizing businesses, Nova is bullish on the
market in North America. 
"We're continuing to see increased opportunities for purchasing a
diverse mix of business assets from corporate and private sellers
(portfolios) in a single transaction," said David Williamson,
Managing Partner of Nova. "Many companies are coming to appreciate
the option of selling an entire portfolio rather than having to sell
individual assets piecemeal. The routine approach is more costly,
distracting to management, destabilizing, and fraught with execution
risk. We deliver a complete solution to corporate and private sellers
for the sale of multiple assets in one single transaction. We have
closed several complex transactions in multiple jurisdictions, and we
see significant opportunities through applying our unique approach in
the North American market." 
In September 2012, Nova completed the acquisition of five industrial
businesses in the U.S. -- all of the operating subsidiaries of
Latshaw Enterprises, Inc. -- in a single transaction. In August 2011,
Nova completed the acquisition of five industrial businesses in
Canada.  
"I'm looking forward to the challenges and opportunities associated
with coming on board at a time when there is an obvious need for
Nova's capability," said David Jacobs. Some of Jacobs' previous
financial and advisory services to clients include work with
MolsonCoors and SABMiller Plc in creating MillerCoors, the sale of
Nabisco Holdings to Philip Morris, the sale of Snapple to Cadbury
Schweppes and the acquisition of Slim-Fast and Ben & Jerry's by
Unilever. 
Jan Kreminski, Nova's US-ba
sed Operating Partner said, "I am
delighted to have David join our team in Chicago. His investment
banking background and extensive contacts will help to further fuel
our growth strategy in North America."  
Kreminski noted that Nova now employs four very seasoned and
experienced professionals based in North America to serve the needs
of their clients, including Investment Partner Kath Jones and
Operating Partner Dennis Powers. "The transatlantic nature of our
firm provides us with strong capabilities to serve North American and
international clients as well as our portfolio companies who may have
assets in multiple geographic locations," said Kreminski. "Our unique
operating model of teaming Operating and Investment Partners together
on each transaction helps us evaluate acquisitions across varied
industries and geographies, allowing us to partner with management
teams to accelerate growth and deliver strong investment returns
through genuine value creation. The addition of David Jacobs'
experience will significantly expand our depth and breadth of
industry knowledge and experience." 
Nova Capital Management 
Established in 2002, and with a 20+ strong team, Nova has acquired or
taken over the management of portfolios representing a total
transactional value of some $1.5 billion. Nova currently manages
investments in 29 businesses primarily operating in Western Europe
and North America, across a broad range of sectors.
