Based in Richfield, Utah, SVO is a well-established retail and commercial fuel business with annual fuel and petroleum product volume of approximately 350 million litres. SVO’s primary operations are in Southwestern Utah, along with a presence in Northern Utah and Colorado. The acquisition of SVO adds seven retail locations and over 20 retail dealers in addition to robust diesel and lubricant distribution capabilities.
“We continue to expand our US footprint and execute on our growth strategy,” says Doug Haugh, president of Parkland USA. “This acquisition meaningfully expands our retail presence in rapidly growing Southern Utah and presents a fantastic opportunity to leverage our North American On the Run convenience store brand, enhance our customer proposition and drive incremental value.”
“The acquisition strongly complements our existing Rockies Regional Operating Center and positions us for further organic and acquisition growth in neighbouring Nevada and Arizona,” added Haugh. “We are delighted to welcome Garrett Ekker and the SVO team to Parkland and look forward to the continued growth of our USA business.”
This acquisition is consistent in value with Parkland’s previous U.S. transactions. Funding for the deal will come from existing credit facility capacity. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2020.
