Panhandle Oilfield Services turns to Capital Alliance for advice on selling the company to private equity firms

DALLAS, June 19, 2013 – Capital Alliance Corp. (, a global mid-level investment banking firm, represented Panhandle Oilfield Services Companies, Inc., Liberal, Kan., a leading oil and gas services company, in the sale of the company to two private equity firms, Argosy Capital of Wayne, Penn., and Akoya Capital of Chicago, Ill.

“Panhandle Oilfield Services had reached the point where its executive team knew the company needed to continue to grow, and that with outside capital and additional strategic management oversight it could grow much faster than it had been,” explained Michael Stengle, senior vice president and principal at Capital Alliance. “The shale formations where Panhandle services its blue chip oil and gas clientele are expected to experience strong growth in both drilling and production. In particular, the Mississippian Lime formation where Panhandle is headquartered should experience significant growth.”

Of the possible acquiring companies reviewed by members of Panhandle Oilfield Services’ executive team, the deal presented by Argosy and Akoya was selected because of the private equity firms’ expertise and experience in environmental and energy services. The acquiring firms will participate in the leadership of the acquired company at the board of directors level.
