Toronto, Ontario, June 2019 – Beacon Corporation (“Beacon”) is pleased to
announce the completion of the sale of Rand Electric (“Rand”), a leading GTA
electrical contractor, to a strategic buyer (“Buyer”), with the deal completing in
June 2019. Beacon was the exclusive sell-side advisor to Rand.
Beacon was engaged by Rand Electric in November of 2018. After running a
confidential sale process for approximately four months, the business owners
accepted a strong offer from a strategic buyer with a portfolio of complementary
businesses in March of 2019. Following extensive due diligence, the
transaction completed in June 2019.
“When selling a contracting business, even as established and reputable as
Rand, it is all about finding the right buyer with understanding and interest in this
particular trade. While we had no lack of interested parties for the business, the
focus always was on identifying a strategic buyer that saw the value and knew the
industry well. The fact that the business is thriving, and growing post-acquisition
is a true testament of how important finding this right fit is”, noted Alex Shteriev,
Partner and Co-Founder at Beacon.
