KKR Completes Brickman Acquisition; Brickman Completes Dallas Acquisition

Although no announcement has been made, multiple sources confirm that the acquisition of The Brickman Group, Ltd. by KKR&Co. was completed on December 16, 2013.  In addition, those sources confirm that Brickman has also completed the acquisition of Metheny Commercial Lawn Maintenance in Dallas, Texas.

The Dallas acquisition was the first for Brickman since Spring 2011 when it acquired The Dworsky Companies in Los Angeles.  Many industry observers have speculated that Brickman would return as an active acquiror following its acquisition by KKR.  The Dallas acquisition seems to indicate that speculation will likely prove correct.
