dean-smithOnce we put the business on the market, we had incredible momentum due to the upfront preparation and planning. Throughout the process, our M&A team gave us great support and kept things moving forward.  We are proud to say we closed for more than we had been expecting!

Ouamy-peterseonr decision to sign on proved to be the crowning decision of our careers. Before going to market we had an analysis of what they predicted our after-tax proceeds would be.  The entire process was very professional and their deal structure was both innovative in its creativity and logical in its simplicity.

john-cusackI worked closely with the M&A team as they extensively qualified potential buyers. Their thorough process identified a mix of highly qualified individual financial buyers, strategic buyers, and even a local family office.  The eventual buyer was extremely professional and we were able to close in just four months.

cindy-locklinListening to the economists about the next 5 year outcome, I decided it was a good time to sell. Every step of the way, the staff went over and above and when it came down to it we had more than one serious buyer.  I’m absolutely happy that I sold the company.  The world is at my door step.

john-stellemaOne of the first things we decided was, “let’s do it ourselves,” and that was an exercise in futility. But, the M&A team sold our business in three months and the return on investment was more than worth it. I highly recommend them.
