Acquest International Serves as Financial Advisor on Latest Acquisition by Clean Earth Inc.

Acquest International, L.P., a New York based M&A firm, has served as exclusive financial advisor to Clean Earth, Inc.’s, acquisition of  MKC Enterprises, Inc. Headquartered in Doraville, GA, near Atlanta, MKC utilizes advanced technologies to provide a wide range of hazardous and non-hazardous waste management services. MKC’s company-owned, fully permitted hazardous waste RCRA Part B facility is well situated as an important regional hub for Clean Earth’s customized hazardous and non-hazardous waste management programs for the high end technical market, including university research and development labs, industrial companies and medical facilities.

Clean Earth offers tailored waste disposal systems and programs that ensure efficiency and safety, as well as US Department of Transportation (DOT) compliance, thereby minimizing liability exposure to the generators. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Chris Dods, CEO of Clean Earth, based in Hatboro, PA, said “Since 1984, MKC has been a leader in providing hazardous and non-hazardous waste management services. Our combined geographic footprint will open new markets for Clean Earth, expand our customer base and enhance our growth prospects. In addition, MKC’s regulatory permits and extensive processing capabilities will enable us to grow our capacity to process medical waste and additional forms of non-hazardous waste.”

Pauli Overdorff, Managing Director of Acquest, said “Acquest served as the advisor to AES Environmental when it was acquired by Clean Earth in 2014, in addition to advising Clean Earth on its acquisition of EWS Alabama of Glencoe, AL in 2016. These transactions underscore Acquest’s versatility advising both sellers and buyers in the environmental services industry.”

“Acquest has considerable experience in the hazardous waste, environmental and industrial services industry,” said Ms. Overdorff, who previously was Chairman and owner of First Response, an environmental and industrial services company in Nashville, TN.  “Our senior bankers have spent the majority of their careers as operators and have a profound understanding of the key value drivers supporting successful waste management and recycling companies across a range of subsectors.”
