Elite Treating Solutions


Sep 2014



Generational Equity, a leading mergers and acquisitions advisor for privately-held, middle-market businesses, is pleased to announce the acquisition of its client Elite Treating Solutions, Ltd. (Elite), headquartered in Midland, TX, by WadeCo Specialties (a holding of Hasting Equity), headquartered in Midland, TX. The acquisition closed on September 30, 2014.

Elite is a specialist oil and gas field services provider, with a focus on providing chemical treatment services. The Company monitors oil and gas wells, and provides services related to corrosion prevention, oil and water separation, and water disposal. Founders Dwight & Kay Yarbrough established the business in 2005, and possess over 30 years of industry experience. Elite has an outstanding reputation in its regional marketplace on the basis of its focus on its technical knowledge, track record of wells serviced, and high level of service offered. The transaction was advised by Bryan Gooden, Vice President of Generational Equity's Central Region deal team, under the oversight of Michael Goss, Managing Director.

Given the high level of operational and financial synergy between Elite and WadeCo, this strong synergistic match allowed for an expeditious deal closing in under 45 days. Mr. Yarbrough has created and sold several oilfield service companies historically and strongly believes in a company maintaining high integrity post-closing. Based on WadeCo's excellent reputation in the oilfield M&A space, both parties are poised for a successful partnership going forward. WadeCo is an oilfield production chemical company that formulates blends and distributes chemicals for oil and gas production companies to support drilling, completion and production activities throughout the Permian Basin.
