Fenway Partners owns all of the outstanding stock of Coach Am Holdings Corp. (Coach Am Holdings), a Delaware corporation organized to consummate this transaction. Coach Am Holdings in turn owns all of the stock of Coach Am Acquisition Corp. (Coach Am Acquisition), another Delaware corporation set up for purposes of this transaction. Coach Am Acquisition will be merged into Coach America, with Coach America left as the surviving company. Following the merger, Coach America will be wholly owned by Coach Am Holdings, and, indirectly, by Coach Am Holdings’ parent, Fenway Partners. No operating authorities will be transferred as a result of the transaction. Coach America, a Delaware corporation, controls the previously named federally regulated motor carriers through its subsidiaries Coach America Group, Inc., and KBUS Holdings, LLC. The motor carriers controlled by Coach America had gross operating revenues for the 12-month period ending October 31, 2006, greater than the $2 million threshold required for Board jurisdiction (gross revenues of approximately $330 million in 2005). Under 49 U.S.C. 14303(b), the Board must approve and authorize a transaction found to be consistent with the public interest, taking into consideration at least: (1) The effect of the transaction on the adequacy of transportation to the public; (2) the total fixed charges that result; and (3) the interest of affected carrier employees. Applicants have submitted information, as required by 49 CFR 1182.2, including the information to demonstrate that the proposed transaction is consistent with the public interest under 49 U.S.C. 14303(b). They state that the proposed transaction will have no impact on the adequacy of transportation services available to the public, that the proposed transaction will not have an adverse effect on total fixed charges, and that there will be no material adverse impact on the employees of the Coach Americacontrolled carriers. Additional information, including a copy of the application, may be obtained from the applicants’ representative. On the basis of the application, we find that the proposed acquisition of control is consistent with the public interest and should be authorized.
