Go2 Logistics Holding Corporation (“Go2” or the “Company”) is a leading provider of integrated supply chain solutions to a variety of end markets across the U.S. The Company offers asset-based and non-asset capabilities that include temperature-controlled and dry van less-than-truckload and truckload services, freight brokerage services and warehousing and distribution services. Go2 is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois and has four other cross dock locations across the United States.
Go2 Logistics Holding Corporation was founded by Tomasz and Grzegorz Rzedzian. In 2015, the Rzedzian brothers recapitalized the business with HCI Equity Partners (“HCI”) which at the time was the first institutional investment received. Throughout the five-year partnership with HCI, Go2 expanded service capabilities, drove operational efficiencies, and generated significant earnings growth. The stakeholders sought to find a new partner to recapitalize the business and allow HCI to realize their investment.
G2 Capital Advisors, LLC (“G2”) was engaged by Go2 Logistics Holding Corporation as the exclusive financial advisor to lead a highly targeted and efficient sale process to find new debt or equity partners to recapitalize the business.
The transaction was successfully executed on May 3, 2021 through a majority recapitalization of Go2 Logistics Holding Corporation with funds affiliated with Stellex Capital Management (“Stellex”). Go2 will add to several platform investments that Stellex has made in the Transportation & Logistics segment.
Tomasz Rzedzian, Co-Founder and Co-President of Go2 said, “We had a tremendous run over the past five years with HCI Equity Partners and thank them for a successful partnership. G2 ran a robust and efficient process that resulted in finding a new partner in Stellex that we are thrilled to welcome to Go2. My brother and I were pleased with the level of service and expertise provided by G2 and could not be happier with the outcome and dedicated support provided by G2.”
“The Rzedzian brothers are excellent operators, and we were pleased to partner with them and continue their growth trajectory,” said Dan Dickinson, Managing Partner of HCI, “G2 did an excellent job throughout the process to lead us to a successful exit and we are thrilled with the final result.”
“It was an honor and pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with the Rzedzian brothers and HCI”, said Chris Casteleyn, G2’s Director – Transportation & Logistics. “Go2 is a highly differentiated transportation service provider that under Stellex’s ownership and guidance, should continue to generate industry leading margins and distinguish itself as a premium LTL carrier. We are excited to monitor the progress and status of key growth initiatives that underpin the strategy that management and Stellex have developed.”
