New Mountain began a proactive effort to seek out investments in the logistics sector beginning in early 2005, and began exclusive discussions with Inmar (a privately held company) later in 2005. When management did decide to seek a partner in the second half of 2006, New Mountain was the first and only potential investor that Inmar sought.
