Great Western Leasing and Sales, LLC (“GWLS”) is a leading full-service integrated solutions provider to the flatbed and specialized trailer industry. GWLS operates a network of strategically located facilities in the western U.S., which offer customers a broad range of sales, financing, leasing and rental options for new and used trailers, as well as after-market trailer repair and maintenance.
The Company sought a strategic partner through an equity recapitalization to establish itself as a platform to consolidate the regionally fragmented heavy trailer sales and leasing business and support its rapid growth.
G2 served as the exclusive sell-side advisor to GWLS.
The transaction was successfully executed through a majority sale to an investor group led by Headhaul Capital Partners, LLC, a New York-based middle market private equity firm focused on acquiring and building businesses in the transportation, logistics and distribution industries, and Argosy Investment Partners, which specializes in providing capital and operating expertise to lower middle-market companies across a broad range of industries.
