Recapitalization and Restructure
Arena Investors, LP (“Arena”), a New York-based global investment firm had been an investment partner of dck, worldwide since 2019. As a result of financial challenges experienced by dck, in large part due to the lack of project funding, delays and project cancelations caused by the Pandemic in 2020 and 2021, Arena Investors ultimately acquired the majority of all assets of dck, Worldwide and other affiliates. These assets included many of the talented employees and leadership that built dck, worldwide into a leader in the domestic, international and Caribbean construction markets. Through the process of acquiring the talent and assets of dck, Worldwide, Arena Investors established Purlin 2, LLC dba dck, Worldwide and ultimately recapitalized dck worldwide as reflected the Balance Sheet following this Executive Summary.
In concert with recapitalization, dck, Worldwide was restructured from an oversight and executive management perspective. A Board of Directors was established consisting of experts in financial investments, real estate and the commercial construction industry. In addition to establishing the Board of Directors, dck, Worldwide executive leadership was rebuilt with seasoned construction professions that have decades of leadership and management experience.
