Investment bankers on the EdgePoint Transportation team combine operational industry experience with multi-disciplinary transactional skill to become trusted advisors to our clients.   This unique combination of talents, gained from experience at leading transportation products companies, legal and tax training, financial due diligence, and equity research coverage of the transportation and infrastructure sectors, positions EdgePoint as the most comprehensive and uniquely-qualified investment bank servicing the Transportation industry.  

Our approach to transaction service is simple, yet brilliant – we consider the operating characteristics of our client relative to the motivations and trends in the industry to develop an investment thesis for the most likely synergistic partners.   Understanding the strategic motivations of the buyer universe, we zealously present the attractive attributes to make our client “a must have” to potentially interested buyers and investors.    We “clear the market” to isolate those with the strongest conviction and cultivate competition amongst suitors to maximize valuation.  Finally, we support the entire process with a financial, legal, strategic, and business operations advice to ensure that the sale process is smooth and certain.

ZefTek, Inc.

After interviewing several firms to sell our company, it didn’t take long for me to know that we made the right choice.

The end result was clearly a ‘Home Run’ for ZefTek shareholders.

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. "
