Salt Lake City — CapM Advisors is pleased to announce that it acted as financial advisor to Granite Seed, a portfolio company of Marwit Capital, a premier, one-stop provider of high quality native seed and erosion control products, on its sale to S&S Seeds, Inc.

S&S is a market leader in native seed used for reclamation projects in California and the western United States. Founded in 1988, Granite Seed is a leading provider of native seed and erosion control products, with a dominant market position in the intermountain West. The company’s expertise, facilities, and superior inventory enable one-stop solutions for the largest and most complex land reclamation, restoration, turf, beautification, pasture and range land projects.

The combination of Granite Seed and S&S Seeds creates the clear market leader for native seed and erosion control products in the Western United States. The combined companies will be an unparalleled resource in the market, with expansive captive production, supply relationships, numerous strategically located distribution points and a continued focus on quality and customer services that will be unrivaled in the industry.

“This is a very exciting result for Granite Seed and its customers,” said Rob Wendell, CEO of Granite Seed. “We could not have accomplished this transaction without our advisors’ expertise and commitment to achieving a successful outcome for our shareholders and Granite Seed.”

“The addition of Granite Seed to the S&S Seeds family of companies creates a platform that improves its ability to serve customers and will now have the broadest reach of any erosion control and native seed business in the United States,” said Geoff Loos, Managing Director at CapM Advisors. “We were privileged to work with and represent the company’s shareholders and stakeholders, including Rob Wendell and the whole management team on this successful new partnership for Granite Seed.”
