22 February 20222 min reading

Ag Growth International (AGI), a provider of solutions for global food infrastructure including seed, fertilizer, grain, feed, and food processing systems, announced that it has completed the acquisition of Eastern Fabricators.

Eastern specializes in the engineering, design, fabrication, and installation of high-quality stainless-steel equipment and systems for food processors. Eastern operates three facilities in Canada with two in Prince Edward Island and one in Ontario. Eastern serves a range of customers across North America and has developed strong relationships with some of the world’s largest multinational food processors. As of October 2021, on a trailing twelve-months basis, Eastern generated approximately $26M in revenue and $8M in adjusted EBITDA.

“AGI Food has grown rapidly over the past several years as we brought together an outstanding team that delivers a unique combination of design, supply, and project management to food processors globally,” noted Tim Close, President & CEO of AGI. “Eastern builds on a solid foundation in our Food platform, bringing a very talented team along with market leading products, services, manufacturing capacity and, most importantly, customer relationships built on years of high-quality execution. This newly expanded team will drive strong revenue synergies as Eastern is integrated into the Food platform. We welcome the entire Eastern team to the AGI family and look forward to accelerating the growth of Eastern and our overall Food platform.”

Consideration for the transaction includes an upfront purchase price of $29.25M payable upon closing plus the potential for an additional $15.75M in earn-outs based on the achievement of financial targets in future years. The transaction will be funded primarily through AGI’s senior debt facilities.
