“We are excited about the prospects for CheckView under our ownership,” said Platinum Equity Principal Jason Leach. “Platinum has an extensive track record of acquiring corporate divestitures and maximizing their potential as standalone businesses. CheckView will act as a platform acquisition and allow us to focus on the core business while pursuing organic growth initiatives and strategic add-ons in a highly fragmented space.”

Platinum Equity invests in a range of industries including information technology, telecommunications, logistics, metals services, manufacturing and distribution. Platinum Equity has completed nearly 145 acquisitions with more than $27.5 billion in aggregate annual revenue at the time of acquisition.

Platinum Equity is a global investment firm with a unique focus on business operations and a strong track record helping companies reach their full potential. The firm’s financial resources and operational expertise will present the CheckView business with tremendous new opportunities. We are committed to support CheckView throughout the sale process to ensure an orderly transition with full continuity of service to customers,” said Checkpoint Systems’ President and Chief Executive Officer, George Babich.
