Managing Multiple Capital Raises for National Retail Food Brand

Kegler Brown has served as counsel to Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, which is consistently recognized as one of the country’s best dessert boutiques, for many years. Early in 2016, as part of our firm’s continuing role as a strategic business partner to the company, our lawyers advised the company’s owners throughout a series of capital infusion transactions, including multiple sales of convertible notes and equity warrants to national private equity investors. These transactions ultimately resulted in the sale of a controlling stake in the company, though financial terms were not disclosed.

In May 2015, the lawyers at Kegler Brown represented Remlinger Manufacturing Company in its purchase of Sukup Manufacturing Co.’s implement line business, including grain drills, row crop cultivators, shredders, rotary cutters, food plot planters, seeders, grain carts and rippers. Remlinger Manufacturing is a leading manufacturer of agricultural equipment and implements. Sukup Manufacturing is a major manufacturer of grain storage and dryers. The transaction was widely reported in the agricultural press, including Agri-Marketing.
