Testimonials

Harry Singer
Former CEO
EDGE Entertainment Distribution

I have worked with EdgePoint on both “buy-side” and “sell-side” engagements. In both instances, I found them to be strategic thinkers, as well as an excellent negotiators. In the instance of the sell-side transaction, though I am not inexperienced in negotiating transactions, there can be no doubt that their prior experience with large private equity buyers got the deal closed on terms and conditions within the valuation range EdgePoint had calculated. I am not sure we would have been able to close without their guidance and expertise.

President
MC Sign Company

I did not fully realize the time commitment necessary to complete a transaction.  The EdgePoint team enabled me and my key managers to remain focused on effectively operating the business, while guiding us through the marketing and due diligence process.  Their skillful and strategic negotiations were instrumental in ultimately identifying and closing the our deal with a partner that best fit our goals and objectives.

"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."

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. "
