W.G. Nielsen & Co., a leading investment banking firm headquartered in Denver, announced that it assisted Bell Aquaculture, LLC, the nation’s largest yellow perch farm and a state-of-the-art aquaculture facility, in successfully negotiating an asset repurchase arrangement with Louisville, Colorado-based Real Capital Solutions. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. "We were pleased to assist Bell Aquaculture with this transaction. This transaction affords Bell Aquaculture the ability to focus solely on the success of its fish rearing; Real Capital Solutions has been a strong and steadfast partner, and Bell has enjoyed its association with Marcel and his team. The completion of this buyback was really a win-win," said Wayne Nielsen, President of W. G. Nielsen & Co.
"At Bell Aquaculture, we devote a tremendous amount of thinking and hard work to ensuring the quality of our product. We feel the same way about our partnerships - both with Real Capital Solutions and W.G. Nielsen & Co.," said Brian Baldwin, Founder and Vice Chairman of Bell Aquaculture.
Bell Aquaculture decided to retain W.G. Nielsen & Co. in May of 2009 based on the investment bank’s reputation for finding beneficial and strategic solutions for its clients.
"Real Capital has long been successful combining good people with good projects. Bell Aquaculture is making major strides as the frontrunner in sustainable fish farming techniques and Real Capital Solutions was pleased to provide innovative financing tools for Bell to expand and grow its business," said Sharon Eshima, President of Real Capital Solutions.
