leave a comment »

Halifax-based SeaFort Capital is buying New Glasgow, NS-based AW Leil Cranes, including some equity participation by existing senior management.  Leil is a mobile heavy equipment rental operator, with business across the region.

This is the first transaction announced by SeaFort, a private equity fund backed primarily by the Sobey and McCain families.  SeaFort has previously announced that they are searching for “old economy” businesses with EBITDA between $2-10 mil.
