Private equity firms Leonard Green & Partners, L.P. (LGP) and Oak Hill Capital, owners of Charter NEX Films, Inc., Milton, WI/USA, have completed a definitive agreement with Dave Frecka, CEO, founder and owner of Next Generation Films, Inc., Lexington, OH/USA, to combine the companies. Dave Frecka will be a major shareholder in the combined company and will continue as CEO of Next Generation Films. Kathy Bolhous will continue as the CEO of Charter NEX Films.
