- MPG is a producer of metal, precision-engineered products for engine, transmission, and driveline applications in vehicles; IPO underwriters include BofA Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, and others.
- Positive correlation has been found between the quality and reputation of a firm’s underwriters and above-market returns at the time of its quiet period expiration.
- With strong early trading sessions, impressive revenues, and a recovering vehicle industry, we suggest investors take advantage of the quiet period as a new buying opportunity for a growing firm.

- MPG moved substantially all of its cash outflows from contractual obligations to 2019, a move that will give it huge operational flexibility.
- A leading provider of highly-engineered components for use in Powertrain and Safety-Critical Platforms for the global light, commercial and industrial vehicle markets.
