Horticultural Alliance Acquired By Italpollina

Italpollina Inc. acquired Generational Equity client Horticultural Alliance Inc. on April 1, 2019.

Horticultural Alliance, based in Sarasota, Florida, provides customers an organic approach to plant health and maintenance through the use of mycorrhizal inoculants, beneficial bacteria, and biostimulants and water management gels. It produces the highest quality, most complete products that are environmentally sound and economically sensible for both commercial and residential applications.

Italpollina offers a wide range of biotechnological and certified solutions for more sustainable and modern agriculture. With headquarters in Italy, it operates in more than 80 countries worldwide, with four production sites and 13 commercial offices. This acquisition helps Italpollina achieve the goal of establishing operations in the U.S.

Generational Equity Executive Managing Director David Fergusson’s team, led by Senior M&A Advisor Mario Dieckmann with support from VP Alex Mironov, successfully closed the deal. Executive Managing Director Edward Weber established the initial relationship with Horticultural Alliance.

According to Dieckman, “While there was growing interest from buyers across the country for this organic approach to plant health care, ultimately it was Italpollina USA, an Italian firm that is expanding rapidly in the US, who was the succeeding acquirer.”

Generational Equity is committed to supporting our clients on their path to exit, helping them complete transactions that benefit all parties and match their ambitions for the future, whatever they may be.
