James Weaver / 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.”

John Strobel / Former President & CEO / Central Warehouse Company

“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. "

Don Mottinger / Former CEO / Superior Products, LLC

“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.”

Michael Lipscomb / 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.”

Denny Crews / 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."


Impact of Clinton Capital Gain Tax Policy on M&A Transactions

Since 1997, high-tax-bracket sellers of capital assets have enjoyed favorable tax rates relative to ordinary income taxation. Even with the Medicare Tax surcharge of 3.8% introduced under the Affordable Care Act, capital-gains rates are still approximately 15 percentage points lower than ordinary income rates. Democrats are very vocal about their discomfort with this policy in current election debates.   And with current polling data suggesting control of the White House will remain with the Democratic party...

Reflections on 40 Years in Middle Market Mergers & Acquisitions - Part 2 of 3

(read Part 1)

Experience is what happens while you march toward the front of “Class Notes” in the alumni magazine.

The Diversity of Ownership – Over the last 40 years, the makeup and motivation of business owners has changed in ways that will affect middle-market M&A for decades to come.

The age at which owners are ready to sell has fragmented dramatically from the 60 or 65 year old transitioning for retirement years ago. Today’s founder may want to sell at 45 or 50 and do something else with the rest of life – maybe start another business, “give back” in nonprofit activity, or seek “life experiences.” Forget the hammock; bring on helicopter skiing and Habitat for Humanity!
