HOUSTON, March 21, 2011 – GulfStar Group (“GulfStar”) is pleased to announce the sale of the assets of Delcor USA, Inc. (“Delcor” or the “Company”) to T-Rex Engineering & Construction, LC (“T-Rex”). GulfStar Group served as exclusive financial advisor to Delcor throughout the transaction, which closed on March 3, 2011.

Delcor, headquartered in Houston, Texas, fabricates industrial steel structures and complex subsea equipment packages for use in the offshore oil and gas production industry. The Company’s products include subsea production modules for managing the flow of oil and gas from offshore wells, production platform living quarters and other buildings, and topside structures. Delcor has been a leader and innovator in these fields since the advent of deep water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico more than 25 years ago.

The GulfStar transaction team included Bryan Frederickson (Managing Director), Chris Coonfield (Associate) and Jeff Maddox (Analyst). Bryan Frederickson said, “We anticipate the partnership of T-Rex and Delcor to be an exceptional strategic fit. Delcor has an entrenched market position in subsea production modules that will complement T-Rex’s existing product offerings. Moreover, Delcor’s waterfront facility will provide T-Rex direct waterway access to the Gulf of Mexico, enabling T-Rex to expand its potential markets while generating key operating efficiencies.”
