An East Coast based entertainment, marketing and toy manufacturing company is for sale. Established 30 years ago, this business has averaged over $15,000,000 in sales through close, long-term relationships with Fortune 100 retailers and entertainment companies. All the company’s manufacturing is done in China. The company is an ideal acquisition for a financial, strategic or industry buyer or an equity group with a similar platform company. 2011 profits were $1,500,000. Stony Hill has industry candidates available to aid in running the company, along with the existing President, who runs the day-to-day operations and will be staying with the firm. The owner / CEO wishes to retire.
The US economy is driven by entrepreneurs - small and mid-market businesses, more than 20 million of them, many of them privately owned. It is often difficult for owners to convert all their hard work and ingenuity into an equity event. It is a complex and time-consuming process. We understand the grind of running your own show and the uncertainty of getting the most value for the business. Stony Hill Advisors has the experience and expertise to assist with selling a private business successfully.
We have experience in the small and mid-market business market with companies having revenues from $1M to $50M . We can provide advice on preparing a business for sale, even years in advance. We can help buyers find the right business for their circumstances. And we advise both sellers and buyers throughout the process to assure a quick, smooth transfer of ownership. In some instances, the parties to a transaction locate each other through informal industry or personal channels. These transactions include sales to unrelated third party acquirers, as well as management, family and partner buyouts. Stony Hill Advisors is frequently engaged to structure these transactions and navigate the many issues requiring attention from the initial stages to the consummation of the transaction. Often Stony Hill Advisors is engaged to provide Exit Value Planning to prepare a business for highest value when it is time to transition.
Stony Hill Advisors assists companies, entrepreneurs and corporate executives develop and execute customized acquisition strategies designed to result in successful acquisitions. We will find a unique business that is not necessarily “on the market”, resulting in a cost-effective acquisition.
