CCG Advisors Completes Sale of Nanak's Landscaping to ValleyCrest Companies
December 1, 2010

CCG Advisors today announced the acquisition of its client Nanak’s Landscaping, a premier Florida landscaping service provider, by ValleyCrest Companies.  Nanak’s and its owners, Sampuran Khalsa and Mahan Kalpa Khalsa, were represented by CCG Advisors, a merger and acquisition firm based in Atlanta specializing in the sale of green industry businesses.

Headquartered in Orlando, Florida, Nanak’s serves commercial clients throughout Florida from four regional offices in Jacksonville, Tampa, Sarasota and St. Augustine.  Founded in 1973 by Sampuran Khalsa and Mahan Kalpa Khalsa, Nanak’s is consistently ranked as one of the top 30 largest landscape companies in the nation and one of the top 4 privately-held companies dedicated exclusively to recurring maintenance and enhancements work nationwide.  Nanak’s has developed a reputation as a cutting-edge “green” company through its commitment to energy efficiency and sustainable practices and was given an “Innovation in Business Award” in 2010 by Lawn & Landscape Magazine for the company’s sustainability efforts.

CCG Advisors worked closely with teams from Nanak’s and ValleyCrest to facilitate the merger between the two.  “CCG did an incredible job of handling the complexities of the transaction while letting our folks continue to focus on running the business,” said Sampuran Khalsa.  “This transaction was far more complex and nuanced than anything I had ever been involved with.  Brian and his team were amazingly skilled and worked long into the night helping us craft a ‘win win win’ solution for ourselves, our employees and the new owners.”

“Joining ValleyCrest is a natural move for Nanak’s because as we have experienced record growth in recent years we have reached a size where we will benefit from the expertise of a company that has operated successfully at this scale,” said Sampuran Khalsa.  “We are convinced that in ValleyCrest we’ve found a partner whose values match up well with our core philosophies and approach to the landscape services business including our deep commitment to promoting more eco-friendly and sustainable landscape practices.” 

The transaction will add substantially to ValleyCrest’s market presence in the state of Florida.  Roger Zino, President of ValleyCrest Landscape Maintenance cited several reasons for the merger including ValleyCrest’s “aspiration to provide unrivaled expertise to serve our customers in each market that we operate.  Florida is a unique market due both to the importance of landscape to our customers’ businesses and the unique climate which leads to complex landscape challenges.”  Mr. Zino said that partnering with Nanak’s “provides us with an unmatched platform of resources to deliver superior service to our customers time after time.”
