Stewardship: Management and Family Buyouts

An entrepreneur’s greatest feat is the successful transfer of control of the business. Many business founders believe sharing power with qualified managers is challenging, but the even greater challenge is often leading the process of decoupling the business from a driven entrepreneurial leader. The charisma and drive that created success must be focused on the crucial process of selecting the right option for ownership transition. The owner’s final journey can best be broken into three distinct phases: The Decision, The Transaction and The Release.

The Decision

International

World Access & International Experience

Alliance of International Corporate Advisors

EdgePoint's international access has enabled them to successfully complete 20 cross border transactions, of which 3 were consummated in the last year.

What Our Clients Say

President & CEO

Omega Sea

"EdgePoint provided expert guidance during my ownership transfer process. They presented strategic and financial buyers and helped me understand the advantages of both options. They did an outstanding job."

President & CEO

SIFCO Industries (NYSE: SIF)

“EdgePoint was the right choice for our divestiture. They gave us small firm attention and big firm results. They brought to the table a synergistic UK buyer that is the perfect fit for our industrial equipment, supplies and service business, and then they got the job done.”

“We’ve worked with EdgePoint since 2008, when they helped us acquire Macro Technologies of Kirkland, Washington by creatively structuring and sourcing multi-layer financing. Macro made our company much larger and more valuable, and EdgePoint continued to help us prepare for an eventual sale. When we began the sale process, they were hands-on with every key aspect of the deal, including finding motivated buyers and getting things back on track several times. They used buyer competition to negotiate a higher price and better terms. It was great to have EdgePoint on our team.”

“Selling a business is difficult. It is a complex and daunting task. Often the transaction is complicated by intense emotions. This was especially true for me as the 4th generation owner/operator of Central Warehouse Operations, Inc. I needed a partner in this adventure who would take control, focus solely on my best interest and track the thousands of details capably. I needed absolute confidence, complete trust, top flight financial savvy and more than a little emotional support. "

Former owner and President

Geartec, Inc.

“Several years ago, I received an offer to buy my company. It was interesting, but seemed low, so I engaged EdgePoint to advise me. EdgePoint promised an orchestrated bidding process to achieve the greatest value and delivered much more than promised. I was and remain delighted with every aspect of the process. The professionalism and attention to detail with my better interests always in mind were exceptional.”
