Energy Conservation, Certification & Analysis Company

Sustainable Energy Solutions is a company that cost-effectively reduced energy costs with testing, thermal imaging analysis, Energy Star, Green Building requirements, building code verification, and certification services, including LEED certifications, and more. They provided services to general contractors, architects, remodelers, HVAC contractors, and homeowners. We had multiple potential buyers, and the best offer came in slightly under the asking price. The buyer was motivated and saw the company's value, so he was willing to raise his proposal to the full asking price and was able to get SBA financing for the purchase.

There is a lot of opportunity for mergers and acquisitions within the industry as well as potential buyers from outside the industry. Within the industry, some environmental product manufacturers are interested in acquiring companies that manufacture other products to expand their offerings. The same holds true for distributors that can pick up additional customers and products that they supply. Service-based companies can grow through acquisition by increasing the geographic area that they cover and get the additional staff that has valuable expertise.

Outside the industry, we have private equity groups and wealthy individuals interested in acquiring companies in the environmental remediation sector. In addition, engineering companies, construction firms, and other companies often want to purchase a firm that adds to their ability to provide more services with the acquisition of a profitable company.

Synergy Business Brokers can help navigate all of these options for you and allow you to focus on continuing to run your company. We'll only get you involved when we have someone that is a good fit. You can then meet to determine if there is the right chemistry and meeting of the minds with price and terms. Our goal is always to get multiple offers that give you the most comprehensive option in terms of price, terms, and the desirability of the buyer.
