Testimonials - What Our Clients Say

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.

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 seamed 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.”

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.

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.”

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.

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. "

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."

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.
