The Chronicle Herald is reporting that Dartmouth, NS-based Cabco Communications Group has been sold to a group of local investors, led by Jim Mills (CEO of Halifax-based Office Interiors).  Cabco is a cabling & technology equipment sales, installation and service provider.

This is another example of the type of financial buyer I have spoken/written about many times.¬† In many sectors, private equity (or informal private equity in the form of a group of investors, in this case) has become a strong & credible alternative to ‘traditional’ industry/strategic acquirers.

Congratulations to majority owner Craig Meredith on his succession and exit!
