YEAR IN REVIEW: OWL SERVICES CONTINUES TO INVEST IN NATIONWIDE GROWTH AND EXPANSION

Nearly $500 Million Invested to Accelerate Deployment of Turnkey Petroleum, Compliance, Integrated Solutions and eMobility Infrastructure and Maintenance Service Nationwide

OWL Services, a portfolio company of Trive Capital and a premier sales, installation, program management, and service partner to petroleum, commercial, industrial, fleet and electrical vehicle companies today announced its year in review highlighted by a significant growth investment the company received from several leading financial and strategic partners.

The proceeds from the investment were used to accelerate the deployment of the company’s turnkey petroleum construction, maintenance and compliance solutions and scale its industry-leading integrated solutions and eMobility business.

As a leader in EV charging station project management, installation and maintenance, OWL Services is currently executing on an ever-growing pipeline of eMobility infrastructure and maintenance projects.

The company works with all major electric vehicle OEM’s and is installing electric charging infrastructure across a blue-chip customer base on a national level. Over the next five years, OWL Services is on track to install more than 10,000 DCFC, Level 3 chargers expanding on its legacy service business to meet the 97% uptime required for new NEVI funding requirements.

“The caliber and interest of our investors illustrates our significant progress and capabilities toward expanding our turkey petroleum and EV charging infrastructure and maintenance services across the country,” said Greg Ergenbright, CEO at OWL Services. “We are equipped to take on the unique demands of electrification safely, efficiently, and sustainably, just as our partner companies have done for decades with petroleum equipment and services.”

OWL Services is supported by an investor group that includes Trive Capital, Sidekick Operators, Monroe Capital, FS Investments, and Bain Capital Credit. Additionally, Goldman Sachs served as the financial advisor in connection with the company’s latest capital raise and Houlihan Lokey served as the placement agent. OWL Services also retained Gibson Dunn to advise on legal matters.

“With OWL Services, we see a differentiated facility maintenance platform that addresses the unprecedented challenges faced by customers in managing electrification while also maintaining existing infrastructure,” said Blake Bonner, Partner at Trive Capital. “We believe the company’s turnkey sales, service and maintenance platform is uniquely positioned to accelerate North America’s energy transformation and the electrification of its transportation sector.”
