Prophet Equity has sold Ace Asphalt of Arizona, Inc. to Huron Capital-backed Sunland Asphalt & Construction
Prophet Equity has sold Ace Asphalt of Arizona, Inc. (Ace) to Sunland Asphalt & Construction, LLC (Sunland).
With more than 50 years of operating history, Ace is a leading exterior facility services platform focused on providing parking lot maintenance and repair and comprehensive site development services for paved and concrete surfaces in the rapidly growing Southwest region. The mission critical and predictable demand for paving repair and maintenance drives recurring aftermarket service revenue for Ace from a diverse, entrenched customer base across numerous commercial, industrial and public sector end markets.
Recapitalized by Huron Capital in January 2021, Sunland is a market-leading asphalt producer and paving solutions provider in the southwest of the USA. Sunland’s acquisition of Ace forms the leading infrastructure services platform in the southwest, offering a comprehensive suite of paving solutions with operations across Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado.

Huron Capital targets both control and non-control equity stakes in fundamentally-sound companies that can benefit from the firm’s operational approach to creating value.

Over the last 20 plus years, the firm has invested in and managed entities with over US$6 billion in revenues. Its equity investments focus on lower middle-market companies with strategically strong businesses and significant value creation potential, such as those found in partnerships, corporate carveouts, divestitures and non-strategic businesses of larger companies.
