Boathouse Capital, the Wayne investoment firm started in 2009 by Ken Jones and his partners, says it's paid $6 million to help Energy Planning Associates Corp. founders Mike Brennan and Jason Plourde buy out the employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) at their Plourde, Fla.-based company, which makes light-emitting diode (LED) and flourescent lamps for business. 

Wells Fargo helped finance the deal. The ESOP still owns a "significant" part of the company. White & Williams represented Boathouse.
