"EdgePoint was an excellent choice for us. We were very impressed with the tremendous knowledge and experience of their team, as well as the easy access to work with them any time of day or night. EdgePoint was able to find an optimal match for our practice that fits strategically and maintains our brand and legacy into the future. We were very pleased with their skills, experience, knowledge and negotiation abilities to serve us well. They truly became a member of our team that we trusted and relied on.

Michael Murphy
President
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. Your firm was relentless in making sure every step was handled correctly and that we fully understood what was required of us as sellers. The end result was clearly a ‘Home Run’ for ZefTek shareholders.

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.”

Wally Varonko
Partner
Northeast Health Services

The EdgePoint team was a patient partner, offering honest, good advice to help us maximize our value, and working with us over an extended period of time to find the right buyer at the right time.

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.

Lou DiRenzo
President
Puritan Products

EdgePoint introduced the idea of partnering with a company to provide resources for acquisitions and brought expertise in managing that process. It has been two years since the partnership officially began and we are working towards securing growth acquisitions in addition to operating the business day to day.

Mike Vasco
Owner
Edko LLC

“I did a major amount of due diligence before making my decision to use EdgePoint to sell my business.  My instincts told me that EdgePoint was my team, and my instincts could not have been more correct. My management team totally trusted EdgePoint’s leadership throughout the process. They served as accountants, attorneys, coaches, psychologists and more, guiding our team with meticulous care through a maze of minefields from kickoff to closing day.”

Kevin Trem
Co-Owner
Arc Drilling

"I couldn't imagine attempting this transition with anyone other than the entire Edgepoint team.  Keeping a level head  throughout the entire due diligence process was quite impressive, and your deep knowledge and understanding of the correct path was both extremely educational and enjoyable for us -- not to mention financially beneficial."

Ryan Hernberg
President
Nationwide Property & Appraisal Services

From the start EdgePoint was upfront, honest, and knowledgeable. It was also because of these traits that we seemed like family throughout the process. We told EdgePoint exactly what we were looking for in a partner and they delivered! Being there for us day and night and weekends too was not only impressive but crucial. EdgePoint took the time and really cared about the outcome of the process whether it was to their benefit or not.

Bob Conway
Partner
Northeast Health Services

Thanks to EdgePoint, we found the right partner for the future of our business, that will offer new opportunities for our clients and staff. This will be an exciting adventure!

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. "

Tim Eippert
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.

Kevin Craig
President and Owner
DriveKore

EdgePoint did an outstanding job representing the ownership group of DriveKore.  They designed and executed a process that resulted in the ideal strategic partner.  I truly appreciate the level of commitment displayed by EdgePoint, who guided us through this important transition with professionalism, thoughtful advice and a keen understanding of our industry.

Jim Sturgill
President / CEO
Master Distribution LLC

EdgePoint’s team of highly skilled professionals truly exceeded our expectations as they guided us through the marketing and selling of our business. They are some of the most knowledgeable people I have worked with during my 45 plus year career. They maintained excellent communication throughout the entire process and the advice given to us through each phase was extremely helpful. Our company realized a higher value than originally expected due to EdgePoint’s excellent marketing preparations and timely execution throughout the process.

Julie & Tony Bombacino
Founders and Former Owners
Real Food Blends

When we decided to sell our company, we met with investment firms of all sizes. We connected with EdgePoint on a personal level during the very first call. They were knowledgeable, professional and easy to talk to – they were human, real and not caught up in banker/PE talk trying to talk over and around us. They referred to themselves as “blue collar” investment bankers. That really resonated with Julie and I since we come from humble beginnings and blue-collar families. 

Michael Emoff
Owner
Shumsky Therapeutic Pillows, LLC

"EdgePoint proved a strategic choice for us, with their healthcare focus and great reputation we were able to find the perfect solution to carry our brand into the next decades. The EdgePoint team fit so well that we consider them part of “our team;” they cared about the things we cared about and guided us through all challenges of our first transaction. We highly recommend the EdgePoint team and plan to include them should we have future transactions"

Fred Hartzler
Owner and Former President
Express Packaging

EdgePoint exceeded our highest expectations at developing a marketing plan for the sale of our business.  They had a response well in excess of the number of offers I anticipated, and at higher values.  The team at EdgePoint was very professional and thorough in the way they provided coaching in the process of prospective buyer interviews and due diligence.  We would not hesitate to recommend them or use them in another transaction.

George Blind
Vice President and General Manager
S.G. Morris Co., LLC

“I cannot imagine that we could have been represented by any better professional advisors than EdgePoint. It was a real pleasure. The results were as good as could have been expected, it was quite an experience.”

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.”

Paul O’Connor
President
Providence Home Health Care

The EdgePoint team was invaluable during the negotiation process. They were able to identify, anticipate and successfully address potential hurdles, to the point that ‘they were able to see around corners’. Their skill and guidance provided me with the highest value and best overall deal structure.
