MasterBrand, Inc. (the “Company,” or “MasterBrand”), through its subsidiary MasterBrand Cabinets, LLC, has agreed to acquire Supreme Cabinetry Brands, Inc. (“Supreme”), a highly regarded cabinetry company, from GHK Capital Partners LP (“GHK”) for $520 million in cash. Pre-synergies, the purchase price represents a multiple of approximately 8.9x Supreme’s adjusted EBITDA1 for the twelve months ending March 31, 2024, inclusive of $25 million net present value of cash tax attributes being acquired in the transaction. Including anticipated annual run-rate cost synergies of $28 million, the purchase price multiple of adjusted EBITDA1 is approximately 5.9x.

Through the acquisition of Supreme, MasterBrand will reach more consumers, across an enhanced dealer network, with improved efficiency and effectiveness – unlocking meaningful value creation and greater opportunities for a superior customer and consumer experience. The transaction provides MasterBrand with a broadened portfolio of premium cabinetry in resilient and attractive categories of kitchen and bath. MasterBrand will have highly complementary and diversified channel distribution, and a strategically located facility footprint with ample capacity to support growth in any market condition. MasterBrand’s industry-leading distribution network, operational excellence, and established industry reputation will create opportunities to maximize the value of Supreme’s portfolio and further enhance Supreme’s exceptional customer service, category expertise, and value delivered to consumers.

“The addition of Supreme’s premium kitchen and bath cabinetry to our offering will enable MasterBrand to provide unmatched breadth and service to our customers and consumers, compelling opportunities for our combined teams, and value to our shareholders,” said Dave Banyard, President and Chief Executive Officer of MasterBrand. “Supreme’s complementary products will immediately expand MasterBrand’s portfolio and accelerate our strategy, while its nationwide dealer network will enhance our existing footprint and strengthen our ability to deliver high-quality, on-trend products. Importantly, MasterBrand and Supreme share complementary cultures grounded in a commitment to the customer and consumer experience. We look forward to welcoming the Supreme team and working alongside them to unlock the many opportunities presented by this acquisition and advance our purpose of building great experiences together.”

“We have long admired MasterBrand’s dedication to delivering for customers, and its commitment to operational excellence. We are excited to join the MasterBrand family,” said Tony Sugalski, Chief Executive Officer of Supreme. “We believe that combining our outstanding service level and craftsmanship with MasterBrand’s resources, scale, and shared commitment to high-quality production will deliver greater value to our customers and consumers.”

The acquisition is expected to deliver annual run-rate cost synergies of $28 million by the end of year three. These will come from areas including procurement, facility optimization, and overhead expenses. In addition to the cost synergies, MasterBrand anticipates commercial synergies across the companies’ complementary channels and product lines. The acquisition is expected to be accretive to adjusted diluted EPS1 within the first full year after closing.

Timing, Financing and Approvals

The closing of the acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including antitrust clearance in the United States, and is expected to be completed during the third quarter of 2024.

While MasterBrand intends to fund the transaction through cash on hand and existing credit facilities, the Company has also arranged an incremental debt commitment from JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. to ensure ample liquidity to support its ongoing capital allocation priorities.

MasterBrand anticipates its pro forma net debt to adjusted EBITDA1 will be approximately 2.4 – 2.6x as of the expected closing date of the transaction. MasterBrand plans to utilize the strong free cash flow generation of the combined organization to reduce this ratio back to its target range of under 2.0x within two years post-close.


Rothschild & Co is acting as MasterBrand’s exclusive financial advisor, and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP is acting as MasterBrand’s legal counsel on the transaction.
