Ranger International Services Group, a private equity consolidator specializing in government services, has been honored by The M&A Advisor for its acquisition of US Logistics. The merger of US Logistics into Ranger International was deemed the Lower Middle-Market Deal of the Year (under $50mm) by an independent panel that reviewed the 170 nationwide finalists in each of 34 categories. Ranger was able to complete 2 acquisitions in 2009, during the worst economic recession in decades, by teaming with First New England Capital, Argosy Investments and Plexus Capital to acquire CAV International and US Logistics. The combined enterprise is expected to finish 2010 with revenue run rates in excess of $100 million dollars and robust operating profits. US Logistics and CAV (pronounced as in “cavalry”) together employ approximately 1,000 people world-wide. These aggressive transactions totaled roughly $28 Million of capitalization by Ranger, despite the troubled economy.
Limited growth in productivity in recent years worries economists forecasting the recovery from a deep global recession. At the same time, and perhaps because of the same dynamics, “big” and “slow” are found together in many economists’ forecasts: Big manufacturers and big financial institutions are slowing the recovery, noted Tom Farrell, executive vice president of Generational Equity, which helps privately held and family-owned businesses transact mergers, acquisitions, and strategic growth initiatives.
