WelchGroup Consulting Announces the Recapitalization and Sale of GAL Power Systems Ltd. to Florida-based Private Equity Firm, Trivest Partners.

August 24, 2018

WelchGroup Consulting (“WelchGroup”), a subsidiary of Welch LLP, is pleased to announce that it acted as the exclusive M&A Advisor to GAL Power Systems (“GAL Power”), an Ottawa-based leader in providing critical power and temperature control solutions in North America, on its sale to Florida-based Private Equity firm, Trivest Partners (“Trivest”).

GAL Power, led by its founder, Guy Lapierre, has had great success in growing and building the business organically over the past 33 years. Trivest’s acquisition and recapitalization of GAL Power will help the company accelerate its growth, further its expansion into the U.S. and assist in seeking additional acquisition targets as they expand their market share within North America.

“I am truly looking forward to the next chapter of GAL’s continuing evolution and am very excited at the prospect of building a strong and productive relationship with Trivest. Together, I am confident that there are no limitations to what we can achieve. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to WelchGroup Consulting, who have been instrumental in bringing about and securing this partnership,” said Guy Lapierre, Founder and CEO of GAL Power.

GAL Power engaged WelchGroup to advise on the sale of the company. “We had a good sense from the onset of our engagement that GAL Power was going to be sold to a private equity firm such as Trivest, who has an entrepreneurial spirit and the business acumen to understand the opportunity far beyond just its balance sheet and income statement,” said Sami Kabir, Senior Associate, M&A, at WelchGroup. “We are very excited to continue to watch GAL Power grow into one of the most dominant critical power and temperature control providers in North America.”
