Case Studies
Taking a Company Public


Sentinel's investment in Holley began in 2015 with our acquisition of Driven Performance Brands ("Driven"), a leading designer, manufacturer, and marketer of specialty automotive aftermarket performance products for car and truck enthusiasts. Driven's products offer a variety of unique designs and styles for a wide range of automotive enthusiasts who consider what they drive and how the vehicle performs an important lifestyle choice. Driven's product line covers almost every part of the undercar, from exhaust to transmission, drivetrain, and electronic tuning products, and is marketed under five leading brands: Flowmaster, B&M Racing and Performance, Hurst Shifters, Hurst Driveline Conversions, and Dinan Engineering.

Founded in 1953, Driven sells through online specialty retailers, warehouse distributors, auto dealers, and traditional auto parts retailers as well as directly to consumers. Driven has a committed and loyal customer base of devoted automotive enthusiasts, a portfolio of iconic brands, and an unmatched distribution network. In August 2017, Driven acquired APR, the leading provider of performance aftermarket products for Audi and Volkswagen vehicles. APR is highly complementary to Dinan, which provides similar products for BMW vehicles.

In 2018, Sentinel acquired Holley Performance Products, a leading producer of high-performance automotive products, and merged Driven into Holley. Holley's product portfolio comprises fuel injection systems, engine tuning and ignition solutions, carburetors, and exhaust systems and includes iconic brands such as Holley, Sniper EFI, MSD, Accel, Hooker, Diablosport, Superchips, and Edge, each with its own identity that allows Holley to target specific consumers across the late-model, classic, truck and jeep, and racing vehicle sub-segments. Founded in 1903, Holley is headquartered in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Like Driven, Holley sells through online specialty retailers, warehouse distributors, and traditional auto parts retailers, as well as directly to consumers, has iconic brands, and has a committed and loyal customer base of devoted automotive enthusiasts.

The combination of Holley and Driven creates the largest and most diversified platform in the high-performance automotive aftermarket market. Operating in a large and fragmented industry, the combined business is well positioned to grow organically and by acquiring additional brands for its portfolio. Following the Holley-Driven merger, the platform completed eight more acquisitions, which has further expanded its branded product portfolio and presents an exciting opportunity to capitalize on Holley’s growing direct-to-consumer channel.

During our ownership, Holley's performance has been outstanding. Holley has emerged as a leading player in its industry and offers a broad suite of branded products that position it as a destination for enthusiast consumers. Having achieved significant scale, in July 2021, Holley completed an IPO and now trades on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "HLLY."
