Capital Alliance arranges sale of Box Asia Group of Thailand to Japanese conglomerate

DALLAS, Oct. 15, 2012 – Capital Alliance Corp. (, a global mid-market investment banking firm, helped arranged very favorable terms for the sale of Box Asia Group of Rayong, Thailand, a packaging design and printing company, to the Oji Holdings Corp. of Tokyo, a 140-year-old paper product manufacturer with annual revenues of approximately $12 billion.

After a worldwide search for a financial advisor, the two founders of Box Asia Group engaged with Capital Alliance based on its expertise in the deal-making process and its global reach. Both founders of the Box Asia Group were French nationals and wished to return to their home country. They had grown their company into a global leader in low-cost consumer packaging products. Capital Alliance located viable buyers from a number of countries, including Malaysia, Fiji, Singapore, France, the United Sates, India, Australia, China and Japan.

“From the group of qualified buyers that we were able to assemble for the Box Asia Group, the founders of company considered offers from firms in Australia, China and Japan,” said Edward J. Dawson, chairman, president and CEO of Capital Alliance. “Oji Holdings Corp. made the most sense because of the synergy between Box Asia Group and itself, and its offer contained very favorable terms for the founders of Box Asia Group. In fact, one of the founders arranged was able to continue on as a consultant to Oji so that he could be a part of the Box Asia Group’s growth into the future.”
