On February 9, one of our favorite waste management companies, Republic Services announced a deal to acquire U.S. Ecology through an all-cash deal worth about $2.2 billion when including net debt considerations. Republic Services is paying $48 per share in cash to take over U.S. Ecology, which provides specialized waste management services. We like this deal as it will add nearly irreplaceable assets to Republic Services’ asset base and is expected to be immediately accretive to its adjusted earnings and free cash flow performance once the transaction closes.
