Annual revenue for the combined company is expected to be around $1 billion, Shale-Inland CEO Craig T. Bouchard told MDM.

“After careful evaluation, we determined that divesting our Industrial PVF business is in the best interests of our company as we seek to continue strengthening our industry-leading businesses,” said Joe DeAngelo, CEO of HD Supply. “The Industrial PVF team, with the expertise of its many seasoned industry veterans, has done a tremendous job and they can be proud that this new chapter is the result of the momentum they have built and the success of their initiatives.”

Once the sale is complete, the proceeds from the transaction will provide HD Supply with additional financial and strategic flexibility to further strengthen its portfolio of industry-leading businesses.

“As evidenced by HD Supply’s performance in 2011 and so far in 2012, we’re pleased with the strategic and financial results that the company has been able to achieve. We will continue to invest in our company to drive organic growth, review potential acquisitions that would fuel growth in adjacent verticals and product categories, as well as expand our geographic footprint,” added DeAngelo. “We remain committed to positioning HD Supply for future success by building our reputation in the marketplace, delivering quality products and providing outstanding customer service.”
