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

“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.”

Brian King

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."

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.

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.

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. "

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."

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

Paul Krause
Former President & Owner
Hughes-Primeau Controls

I am so happy I chose EdgePoint to market and sell my business. They were professional from the beginning to end and did everything they said they were going to do.  They did a great job marketing our business and brought multiple buyers to the table with excellent offers.   They provided excellent guidance through all phases of the process as well, especially as we met with prospective buyers.  I can’t imagine going through this process without EdgePoint and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to sell their business. Great job!!

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.

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"

Tom Arko
President
Eight 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.

Louis Perry
Former President
The Louis Perry Group

EdgePoint did an outstanding job for me. My parameters for a buyer were very specific and EdgePoint was able to work within those constraints to identify and negotiate a transaction that was economically compelling to me and that preserved the emphasis I built on customer service and the creation of long-term opportunities for my employees. We are most pleased with their service.

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.”

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.
