They have built up a large distributor network and also distribute other brands. They have over 90 employees. They supply trailers for automobiles, landscaping equipment, horses, cargo, motorcycles, livestock, and more. The business was very profitable but also came with some debt so took some time to find the right buyer.

Marine Equipment Manufacturer

(JohnRie Intertech, LLC) The business focused on marine deck equipment engineering, servicing, and manufacturing, including tugboat winches. The owner started the business over 20 years ago and was well-known in the industry. The major mechanical components were made in Korea and assembled in the US; the business had 4 employees, including the owner, who was the main engineer and only sales rep., so he traveled constantly around the world.   Early in the engagement, It was evident that this business required specialized skills, and our best chance of selling would be a strategic buyer. We worked with our client to get a list of competitors and started calling the highest level we could reach at the companies. Within the first two months, we had an LOI from a large marine deck manufacturer in Houston. However, it became apparent as the deal progressed that the seller’s culture would not mesh with the buyer’s culture. So, the deal was called off. We found another buyer in the industry that was recently sold to a Private Equity firm. We initially refused their first offer; they came back a month later with the final offer, which was accepted. The deal had some sticky points, specifically with working capital (earned AR vs. new orders deposits) and how to transfer government contracts due to the CAGE codes, which may or may not be transferred to a new legal entity (long-term Navy contracts), so it ended up being a stock sale.  We were able to overcome the issues and close the deal.

Trucking Company

(Safeway Trucking) The owner of this trucking company had recently sold the property in which the business was housed, and the new owner gave them a very short time to vacate their premises. Hence, the seller wanted us to move quickly. We located a strategic buyer in the trucking industry who didn’t need the property because they already had their own location. They were interested in picking up the clients and employees. We negotiated an acceptable offer and closed the deal within six months from start to finish.
