Great Plains Holdings specialty is in gaining controlling stakes in small to middle market companies in North American manufacturing, consumer products, distribution, real estate, and business services. Privately held company owners seeking to sell part or all of their holdings often face challenges finding suitable buyers. Selling directly to a private party rarely nets the desired price. When Great Plains Holdings makes an acquisition, it is usually in the form of common stock, allowing the owner of the company being acquired to sell the stock in the open market for a significantly higher return.
The company operates through two wholly owned subsidiaries: Ashland Holdings, LLC, focused on the real estate sector; and LiL Marc, Inc., maker of the “LiL Marc” training urinal for toddler boys. This diversification model enables Great Plains to achieve multiple revenue streams and consistently increase tangible or physical assets.
Great Plains Holdings recently announced that Ashland has completed phase 1 of its project pertaining to two recently purchased adjacent parcels of land in Wildwood, Florida. This acquisition includes approximately 0.9 acres of land, a 1,400-square-foot corporate office building, and an additional parcel of land with a manufactured home. The company intends for the properties to occupy one or more of the five office spaces on the property and lease the remaining vacant offices to obtain revenues.
Phase 2 of this project is expected to be completed by the end of April 2014. This will allow for additional leases and cash flow for Ashland, aligned with Great Plains’ goal to keep zero debt while increasing income streams over the next twelve months.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the rapid progress of our expansion strategy. Ashland Holdings has demonstrated its dedication and capability to establish and successfully execute a progressive plan of action,” said Great Plains’ President Denis Espinoza. “We look forward to keeping this pace as we move into the second phase in upcoming months.”
