Structural Design System #10332

Annual Revenue: $2.9M (2017 Projection)

The owners of this company came together twenty-five years ago to solve a problem. Each of them had complimentary businesses of their own and were seeking a collaborative and cost-effective way to use existing raw materials to do what had never been done before. After ten years of design and testing along with the following sixteen years introducing their solution to those who could use it their system has now become an integral part of new projects. The business is now at an inflection point. The original owners are nearing retirement and are serving in “consulting” roles at the moment. The business has shifted completely from a development phase to a marketing phase. Repeat users are increasing and sales are following suit. Sales in the first half of 2016 exceeded all of 2015. Their costs remain very low and EBITDA margins have increased to over 75%. The company’s president is aware of the process and is interested in remaining involved while the owners are also willing to support a new owner during a suitable transition period.

HVAC Installation & Service Provider #10333

Annual Revenue: $8.5M

This company is one of the most well respected and successful HVAC companies in their region. They provide quality heating, ventilation, and air conditioning installation and service in the following segments: residential new construction, residential replacement or add on, light commercial construction and replacement, and multi-family dwellings. The Company generates a great deal of sales by their reputation in the market and marketing and advertising efforts are minimal. Sales could be immediately augmented through additional resources being placed in this area. The Company has generated strong financial results in recent years and management expects this trend to continue. The Company is well positioned in their target regions and is at an exciting point in their history where numerous opportunities for growth are available in the marketplace. The owner is committed to ensuring a smooth transition and will remain involved in the business to help facilitate a transition.

Track and Field Design Company #10339

Annual Revenue: $4.2M

This company is a certified expert in the construction and repair of running tracks and field events. This is a process-centric (vs. owner-centric) company which has been built around a suite of software tools that drives unmatched efficiency into their marketing and production process. Their systems have allowed the business to become increasingly predictable and efficient during a time when the owner has significantly reduced his role in the day to day operation. The general manager runs the business with limited oversight from the owner. Their field operators are heavily cross trained and supported by equipment that allows them to be as efficient as possible. While they have traditionally operated as a regional player in the track and field space, the past few years have focused on expanding the company’s footprint and growth avenues.

Early Age Education and Care Centers (Multiple Locations) #10341 – UNDER LETTER OF INTENT

Annual Revenue: $3.4M

This company provides early education learning and childcare services to children from infancy through Kindergarten at their specialized centers. Their nationally renowned, proprietary program/curriculum carries the highest possible rating from the State. They are also nationally accredited by NECPA (National Early Childhood Program Accreditation). Their existing locations are currently operating at full capacity with expansion plans in the works. The owners, with plans for retirement, have placed an emphasis on attracting, retaining, and developing highly qualified employees. There are very tangible growth/expansion opportunities available that the owners would pursue if they were at a different point in their collective careers. Management is expecting 2017 to be strong as they continue to expand their footprint and program. This is an ideal opportunity for a growth-oriented buyer who is looking for a highly differentiated, highly scalable business in the education space.

Value Added Distributor / Installer #10344

Annual Revenue: $6.6M

This company is a leading regional distributor, installer, and service provider. They operate four related, but specialized divisions that have developed to address expanding customer requirements and requests over the past 25+ years. While they can be considered a supplier with field service… they are a manufacturer in that they take the materials they purchase and modify / assemble them. This value-added service allows clients to purchase turn-key solutions that work right the first time. Consistent and predictable results have solidified their position in the market and fostered long term strategic relationships with key regional players. 2016 was another very good year for the company with revenues and Adjusted EBITDA of $6.6M and $625K respectively. The owners are planning for retirement, but are willing to stay involved for a mutually agreeable transition period. Competent management is in place.

Serving the Legal and Insurance Industries #10346 – UNDER LETTER OF INTENT

Annual Revenue: $14.0M

Founded by industry pioneers, this company is North America’s largest and most experienced service provider in this space. They developed the industry and maintain a strong market position in it. The relationships that fuel this business were built by direct/personal interaction, are long standing, and would be difficult to replicate on such a scale. They have traditionally focused on their core business with some ventures into growth projects, but it is expected a new owner would venture further into avenues of growth. This is a service business with low capital requirements and predictable cash flow. This is also a family business with more than one owner nearing retirement…investing conservatively in growth and new ventures. There are non-family managers in place. They know the business very well but would benefit from the new strategic insight a new owner(s) will bring. A new owner should be able to add value in multiple areas quickly.
