Williams Controls, Inc. ~ 5,000,000 ~ February 2001

Williams Controls, already the world’s leader in electronic throttle controls for the heavy truck market, decided to seek a strategic partner to enhance its position in the emerging market for automotive ETC’s. When the Company needed funding to support automotive related capital expenditures while strategic partners were being solicited, they turned to Taglich Brothers. Already familiar with the Company, Taglich Brothers was able to match Williams Controls with a savvy group of U.S. Institutional Investors with the capacity to move very quickly.

The result was a timely solution to a major funding problem, which provides the time necessary to find the most appropriate strategic partner.
