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.”

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.”

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. "

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.”

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."


Why Owners Wait to Sell Their Business

During my thousands of conversations with closely-held business owners over the years, the most frequent question they ask is when to sell their business. Nowadays, nearly every M&A professional heralds the positive attributes of the market as an ideal time to sell a business. Low interest rates, favorable capital gains tax rates, business confidence, and demand pursuing acquisitions are just a few indicators that now may be a good time to sell. From a purely financial perspective, the decision to sell seems like an easy one.

Impact of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on Owners Considering Selling Their Business

The tax reform signed into law December of 2017 includes lower federal tax rates and several new tax deductions that apply to both C-Corporations pass through entities, including LLCs and S-Corps.  Along with those tax deductions come a new set of restrictions on other deductions such as the ability to deduct state and local tax (SALT) against federal income tax, limitations on deducting interest on business loan payments, among other miscellaneous complicated new rules affecting business taxation.
