I had heard of M&A of Ohio’s reputation through some personal contacts, so I decided to hire them to sell my retail Amish furniture business. I was impressed by the quality of prospective buyers they introduced. In the end they sold it to an individual who didn’t have retail furniture experience, but five years later still owns it and seems to be doing well. I was impressed that prior to closing, Gary and his wife spent a good part of the weekend helping us do the necessary physical inventory. What a great testament to their ‘get it done’ work ethic.
Health challenges kept me from putting the effort into my company to sustain its prior profit levels. Yet I had enough energy to take calls, fill orders, and provide customer support, etc. so we kept it going. To make a long story short, I needed to exit the business and retire, but the business financials weren’t what I’d have liked them to be. I found M&A of Ohio and was encouraged that they’d be able to help me. In just a few short months they found an enthusiastic, energetic buyer who moved my business and successfully grew it despite the weak economy. I strongly endorse M&A of Ohio.
I highly recommend Don Prince and Gary Underhill of M&A of Ohio. The sale of our company was a challenging project. It was challenging because it was an ESOP with many shareholders. Furthermore, we wanted a stock sale, and I wanted to keep working for the company. Additionally, banks were not lending money and our business is tied to the construction trade which is an immediate red flag to most buyers. Despite all these challenges, they met our objective by selling the company for more than we had started out asking. If you are thinking of selling your business, M&A of Ohio should be on your short list of Brokers to consider.
My business manufactured curio cabinets for the wholesale market and sold in many states. When it was time for my partners and me to sell, we hired Gary Underhill and Don Prince to represent us. We never expected them to sell the company so fast or to a buyer from Florida, or for a number so close to what we wanted. We were highly satisfied by the result and recommend them wholeheartedly.
For 25 years, my business provided a unique and important service to disabled public employees in Ohio. As I reached retirement age, I decided to slow down. However, I knew that the service provided by my business was still needed. Thus, I struggled with my decision to simply continue to decrease sales and close. While struggling with this decision, I was very pleased to find M&A of Ohio. They were very knowledgeable about the value of my small business and my option to sell. They handled the sale negotiations with professionalism and attention to detail. M&A of Ohio was great to work with. They found a perfect buyer and had the deal done within five months.
It has been four years since M&A of Ohio sold my jet charter company. We were experiencing a time of growth when the sale process began. They positioned and presented Ultimate JetCharters to highlight its bright future. The transaction price was about $2 million higher than what I initially expected. I would definitely hire M&A of Ohio again as I was impressed with their persistence, professionalism and integrity.
We first worked with M&A of Ohio when we were looking to acquire a business. We found them to be very professional and thorough. When the time came for us to sell our advertising business, M&A of Ohio was our clear first choice. They sold our business in a little more than 90 days and got us what we were asking. I highly recommend them to anyone needing to buy or sell a business.
