Nyhart makes first West Coast acquisition

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Nyhart Actuary & Employee Benefits has established its first office on the West Coast with its latest acquisition.

Nyhart will add 15 employees by acquiring San Diego-based Epler Co., a regional actuarial, employee benefits and compensation-strategies firm. Nyhart now has 100 employees, with 70 of those at its headquarters in Indianapolis.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Epler will operate under its own name with its current management team before eventually taking the Nyhart name after an undisclosed time.

The deal gives Nyhart new expertise on employee compensation, which it hopes will help bolster its pension plan business for private, church and public plans. Nyhart serves plans with $15 billion or more in assets, providing fund analysis, advisory services on employee compensation and retirement benefits, and actuarial work on health care issues. It also performs administrative functions for pension plans.

“We are excited to establish a permanent presence on the West Coast while adding seasoned expertise to our team,” said Nyhart CEO Thomas Totten in a prepared statement.

It is the third acquisition Nyhart has made in the last two years. In December 2010, Nyhart acquired a Kansas City-based retirement administration group that was part of the Alliance Benefit Group North Central States. And, in June 2011, Nyhart bought Stanley, Holcombe & Associates, a government-focused pension practice in Atlanta.

  1. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
