Capital Alliance Corp. advises in Peliton’s sale to Aureon HR

DENVER, Oct. 3, 2017 – Aureon HR, a business solutions provider based in West Des Moines, Iowa, has acquired Peliton LLC, a Denver-based Professional Employer Organization (PEO).

The acquisition gives Aureon its first foothold in the Rocky Mountain region.

Dallas-based Capital Alliance Corp., a mid-market investment bank, represented Peliton in the sale.

Neal England, Capital Alliance managing director – HCM practice leader, sourced and directed the acquisition.

“There was broad-level, complementary synergy between Aureon and Peliton and both parties worked diligently together to create a highly successful transaction,” England said.

Peliton, a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) founded in 2004, is a leading provider of human resource consulting, payroll administration, health plans, benefits administration, accounting services, workers’ compensation and other services to small and mid-sized businesses located throughout Denver and in other states.

“The merging of Aureon and Peliton will create expanded services with broader resources for our clients, along with greater opportunities for our employees,” said Frederick Miale, CEO of Peliton.

Miale said Capital Alliance Corp. was instrumental in bringing the two companies together. “Capital Alliance provided honest, straight-forward advice via a thorough M&A process that enabled us to maximize value while finding the best fit operationally,” he said. “We were able to receive a value that exceeded our expectation, while also providing an exciting career opportunity for our Peliton team,” Miale said.

For its part, Aureon said the transaction added talented, PEO-experienced team members who share the company’s vision for service excellence. The transaction also positioned Aureon to expand throughout the western U.S.

“Aureon continues to seek high-quality opportunities to expand our business support services in markets with thriving business communities and to partner with successful organizations in those markets,” said Joel Duncan, president, Aureon HR. “Peliton’s success in serving the Denver business community aligns completely with these objectives.”
