The COVID19 pandemic has impacted many businesses. We've updated the status of each business listed below.

Current Clients - update 02/15/2021

  • Elevator repair business: We engaged this $6.5M revenue client in June 2020. This company is very profitable, extremely innovative, systematized and less prone to downturns due to its customer base. There are patents and proprietary systems that drive performance. Growth potential is huge for a buyer who develops a well thought out national sales strategy. STATUS: we are in Due Diligence with a strategic acquirer, expecting to close no later than 02/28/2021.

  • Washington Winery: This well established, award winning and profitable 3,000 case winery is located in Woodinville.  It is known for high quality red wines- varietals and blends.  The winery inventory is bottled/cased and ready for the next four wine club releases- the next two are scheduled for February 2021 and April 2021.  For a new owner the releases provide initial working capital cash and allow for meaningful connection to and retention of wine club members in the transition. STATUS: we have an LOI from a qualified buyer and are targeting a close no later than 04/30/2021.

  • High-end Furniture retail operation: Good brick and mortar retail is not dead. This is a uniquely well positioned company for the new normal as their products fit perfectly into the stay-at-home dynamic that is expected to continue for some time. Research shows that consumers will be slow to gather or entertain outside of their homes and will continue to invest in upgrades that make the home environment more pleasant and comfortable.  This business is for someone looking for a very consistent, predictable, and well-known business with $850K of cash flow per year. This $6.5M revenue Puget Sound company has very successfully navigated the COVID19 downturn. 2020 year-end revenues deviated only 6% from norms in spite of a 2 ½ month closure- a validation of the company's position of strength in its market. January 2021 written sales orders were extremely strong. Link to Teaser

  • Site Development Construction Company: This $11.5M revenue company has higher gross margins than industry norms and 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.  We are awaiting an update on 2021-2022 contract awards.
