02.26.08 CWC closes $9.0 million Equity raise for Whisper Creek

We are pleased to announce that Whisper Creek Log Homes has closed on a $9 million equity transaction provided by Inlign Capital Partners of Phoenix, Az. Whisper Creek manufactures log home kits which it supplies throughout the United States and Canada . Whisper Creek owns its proprietary manufacturing techniques which allows for the traditional look and feel of a log home but at much lower cost to the consumer. Additionally, the resulting home can be built significantly faster than traditional methods and provides a more sound, leak-free environment.

According to Jerry Dunn, Whisper Creek CEO, "This equity infusion gives us the ability to capitalize on the tremendous demand for our product even in the face of a downturn in the primary housing market. This growth capital will provide the firepower for us to achieve our goal of becoming the nation's largest log home provider."

"We are extremely pleased to be a partner with Whisper Creek and its team, stated David Holthe, President of Inlign Capital Partners, they have the attributes of a great product, good management and growth potential we look for in our investments."

Whisper Creek Logs Homes was advised by Columbia West Capital on this transaction.
