  • Specialty Civil Construction Company:   Focusing on deep foundation and shoring solutions for over 700 projects in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana, this company has the expertise and the experience to handle any specialized foundation or shoring project.  Projects include a number of markets including Commercial and Industrial Buildings, Roads and Bridges, Residential and Emergency Repairs.  Teaser will be ready soon.

  • Residential Flooring Company: $11M+ revenue and highly profitable business with long term, solid relationships serving customers for almost twenty years in the Puget Sound. It is family owned and highly respected in its industry. Customers are custom builders, production builders, remodel contractors, and the Do-It-Yourself homeowner. The company manages installers and provides quality carpet, tile, hardwood, laminate, natural stone tile, slab granite and quartz, vinyl flooring, luxury vinyl flooring, and automated blinds. The market has healthy growth projected for the next five years. The staff is experienced and highly competent; many with hands-on contracting experience. This gives the company a unique understanding of the industry and positions the company as contractor of choice for new large-scale home-building projects. STATUS: on hold as the client is waiting for supply chain challenges to be resolved in the residential home building industry.

  • Site Development Construction Company: $8M+ revenue company has higher gross margins than industry norms; works in a wide range of site development projects in the Pacific Northwest ranging from commercial and residential to public works. The company has a solid team that focuses on accurate estimating, selective bidding, tight cost controls, and accurate invoicing of change orders. Revenues are projected to grow to $11M+ in 2022. STATUS: client has received an LOI from a Scottish Company.

  • SaaS Surgical Instrument and Implant Tracking Company: the company provides a cloud-based SaaS solution for hospital challenges associated with vendor supplied instruments and implants.  The company is profitable and has significant growth potential for an acquirer with an appropriate marketing and sales team. Massive increases in elective surgeries are projected for the baby boomer generation. This is forcing hospitals and surgery centers to find new ways to improve efficiencies and reduce costs while maintaining a high quality of patient care. A major benefit is the collection of critically important and relevant data which can provide a negotiating advantage to a hospital; for example, the data can be used to support negotiations of implant contracting agreements (often several hundred million dollars). LINK TO TEASER

 

  • High-end Furniture Retailer: This company dealt with the global supply chain issues that affected most businesses and finished 2021 with its best ever performance, around $8.3M in revenue with record earnings. Management has refined the process for orders-deliveries-inventory. The seller expects a very solid 2022 year but given supply issues he feels that revenues will fall a touch to a more traditional level around $7.0M. The Seller is motivated by personal considerations and will consider a solid offer that meets his expectations. The buyer of this successful and established business will need to have in place an accepted Letter of Intent no later than January 31, 2022. The owner would prefer to find a suitable buyer- one who will honor the legacy of the business and its employees, and have aspirations to grow the business in the robust Puget Sound market. This company is well positioned for growth in the region. STATUS: LOI has been executed with closing scheduled for mid-June.
