JZ Capital Partners Limited (LSE:JZCP.L or “JZCP”), the London listed fund that invests in US and European micro-cap companies and US real estate, has realised two of its investments, Southern Petroleum Laboratories (“SPL”) and Metpar, for a combined $11.5 million.

Southern Petroleum Laboratories

JZCP received proceeds of $8.4 million from the sale of SPL, a leader in oil & gas measurement and laboratory services, which is approximately the company’s carrying value. JZCP also received warrants for approximately $0.5 million on day one value in the new buyer as well as a dividend of $1.3 million from SPL in July 2015.


JZCP received proceeds of $3.1 million from the refinancing of Metpar, a manufacturer of restroom partitions, which is a significant uplift to the company’s carrying value of $0.8 million. JZCP received proceeds of $3.1 million over the lifetime of the Metpar investment in addition to the $3.1 million recently received.

David Zalaznick, JZCP’s Founder and Investment Adviser, commented: “We are pleased with the outcomes of both of these sales, particularly with SPL given the challenging energy market, and wish the companies the best of luck for the future.”
