Onex Corp. announced Onex Partners III and certain co-investors, including Onex, have completed the sale of their remaining approximately 14.9 million shares of Jeld-Wen Holding Inc. common stock at a net price of $28.50 per share. Jeld-Wen chose to purchase $200 million, approximately half of the shares, Onex sold. With this sale, the Onex Group no longer holds any shares of Jeld-Wen.

Onex has held an ownership position in Jeld-Wen since 2011. "We are appreciative of Onex's support of Jeld-Wen over the past ten years and believe we are well-positioned to continue to create value for our shareholders," said Jeld-Wen in a statement.

"We are extremely proud of the progress our company has made and we’re excited about our future prospects," the statement continued. "We are well-positioned to continue to grow and capitalize on a strong operating environment. These transactions represent the natural evolution of Jeld-Wen’s ownership journey, as our phase of private equity ownership is now complete, with nearly 100 percent float held by public investors. We have significantly strengthened our company, putting ourselves in a strong capital position, poised for future growth."
Gross proceeds to the Onex Group from this transaction are approximately $425 million, of which Onex’ share was approximately $110 million as a Limited Partner in the Fund and as a co-investor.
