MSouth Announces the Successful Exit for CGW Portfolio Company
Atlanta, GA (January 2, 2009) - MSouth Equity Partners, an Atlanta-based private equity firm, announced that Document Technologies, Inc. has completed a recapitalization transaction.

"We consider this recapitalization a true win-win" said Bart McLean, an MSouth Partner. "It provided an attractive return for our CGW investors, while allowing the DTI management team to continue forward with a substantial ownership position in a strong company."
