HOUSTON, January 20, 2015 – GulfStar Group (“GulfStar”) is pleased to announce the sale of Specialized Environmental Resources, LLC (“SER” or the “Company”) to an affiliate of Grey Mountain Partners. GulfStar served as the exclusive advisor to SER throughout the transaction, which closed on December 24, 2014.

SER is a leading service provider of geotechnical and environmental drilling, environmental remediation, amphibious excavation and marine transportation in logistically difficult marine environments. These areas include wetlands, swamps, bayous, rivers and other inland and near-shore bodies of water inaccessible to conventional drilling and excavation equipment. The Company, based in Carencro, LA, has provided these specialized services nationwide since its formation in 2004.

The GulfStar team included Managing Director Bryan Frederickson and Associate Ben Stanton. “We thoroughly enjoyed working with SER and its owners, Scotty and Valerie Broussard, to see this process through to a successful conclusion,” Frederickson said. “They have built a unique business that should continue to expand as it accesses resources provided by the platform that Grey Mountain is assembling.”
