Press Release

November 21, 2012

Peterson Partners announced that the firm has closed a successful exit of its investment in Vivint. Blackstone Capital Partners VI, L.P., a fund managed by Blackstone (BX) on behalf of its private equity investors, purchased the entirety of Peterson’s equity interest.

“We are extremely proud to be part of one of the largest private company transactions in the state of Utah,” said Dan Peterson, managing partner of Peterson Partners. “This transaction furthers our established track record of aligning with outstanding management teams to help build great businesses and accelerate growth. Vivint’s founders and executive team produced exceptional results for customers, shareholders, employees and the community at large. We feel fortunate to have been associated with such an extraordinary company.”

The acquisition includes three primary assets: Vivint, a home automation services companies and the second largest residential security services provider in North America; Vivint Solar, a solar company in the United States using power purchase agreements to provide affordable solar solutions to residential consumers across North America; and 2GIG Technologies, which creates industry-leading security and automation equipment for the residential and small commercial markets.

The Vivint acquisition was announced on September 19, 2012. Blackstone acquired Vivint for in excess of $2 billion.
