Quinn to Launch Quinpario Capital Management LLC

NEW YORK, Dec. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mr. Jeffry N. Quinn, founder and managing member of Quinpario Partners LLC, today announced the formation of Quinpario Capital Management LLC, an investment firm focused on generating significant capital appreciation for investors. Mr. Quinn, along with Partner Nadim Z. Qureshi, has created an event-driven, activist-oriented strategy scheduled for launch in January 2015, focused on constructive strategic and operational activism within the chemicals, industrials, general manufacturing and energy sectors. The principals of Quinpario Capital Management have over 35 years of leadership experience within these sectors and will apply a deep understanding of global markets and a proven ability to unlock shareholder value, both as investors and operators.

"We employ a proprietary methodology to identify investment targets, with a track record of creating value in sectors that are ripe for invigoration," stated Quinn. "We continue to identify compelling investment opportunities where, with the injection of perspective and talent, we are confident in our ability to realize significant value for investors."

Collectively, activist campaigns led by Quinpario Capital Management's principals have provided favorable returns for investors. To date, the team has been successful in meeting key objectives in activist campaigns, including the advocacy for evaluation that ultimately led to the sale of Zoltek Companies, Inc. and the successful placement of nominees to Ferro Corporation's Board of Directors.

Quinpario Capital Management offices are located in New York, New York.

Quinpario Capital Management is not currently registered as an investment adviser with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 or under the laws of any state, but expects to file as an "exempt reporting adviser" with the SEC.
