Saad A Shakir, M.D.
Founder
Silicon Valley TMS

"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.

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.

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.”

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. "

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."

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"

Johnny Johnson and Eric Hankinson
President and Vice President
RailPros

"EdgePoint was an excellent resource to help us navigate the sale process.  They managed an organized and competitive auction, introduced us to qualified investor candidates, negotiated very attractive offers on our behalf, and fully supported us through the diligence and negotiation process.  We are most pleased with their service."

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.”

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.”

Brian King
President & CEO
Kenway Consulting

"Working with EdgePoint was an incredibly positive experience.  They flattened the learning curve with their experience and wisdom.  They inserted themselves where possible to take work off my plate.  And they handled my emotions with the right combination of patience, tough love and empathy.  I wholeheartedly endorse their services to business owners considering their exit options."

Tom Arko
President
Eighth Day Sound

I could not be more pleased with the services of Edgepoint.  The team worked with us through a long and difficult process with an initial buyer, managing the process and working with my staff side-by-side. Most importantly, they instilled in us the confidence that great alternatives were available if at any point we didn’t feel it was the right candidate. We didn’t!  Edgepoint negotiated and closed an even better deal in less time than we spent negotiating with the initial party.

Ryan Yerkey
Board Director
EBO Group

“EdgePoint was an excellent advisor to EBO Group as we navigated this critical transaction.  EdgePoint helped us organize our value proposition, identify the most likely interested parties, communicate those attributes to the market, negotiate compelling offers, and manage a sale process that was strategic and growth-oriented in nature.  We are pleased with how EdgePoint supported us from start through Closing. This is the second transaction for which EdgePoint advised EBO Group, Inc.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ryan Yerkey
Former President
TransMotion Medical, Inc.

The medical product knowledge and expertise of EdgePoint enabled us to have a highly competitive auction process for the sale of TMM.  EdgePoint’s disciplined process and negotiating skills made the difference.  We were pleased to have found a partner who will support our continued growth.

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!
