Current Clients - update 11/15/2021

  • 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. LINK TO TEASER

  • 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: this opportunity is back in play after being on hold as the client was awaiting confirmation of permits for significant new business; hurdle has been cleared and outlook for 2022-23 is very robust. We currently have one serious inquiry from a Europe based group.

  • Cloud-based Medical Device Vendor Management software business; a unique company for sale that provides a hardware/software solution for hospital problems associated with consigned medical devices used in orthopedic, spine and other surgeries.  The company is profitable and has significant growth potential. The company was founded in 2014 by the president and another surgical spine sales representative who were intimately familiar with the challenges between hospital staffs and medical device suppliers. Within the first few months of operations, two of the largest health care organizations endorsed their concept, ran a successful pilot, and purchased the system. With only a limited staff of five people, the company has refined their offering and deployed it to over 90 hospitals.  2021 revenues are projected to be $1M with cash flow estimated at $750K.  A recent agreement with a 175 unit hospital organization will increase annualized revenues significantly over the next year.  Ownership desires to sell the company to an entity with a strong national sales and marketing team that can support wide deployment as well as continue to expand the offering. STATUS: we'll be bringing this company to market and have a Teaser available by early December 2020.

  • High-end Furniture Retailer: This company is back on the market after having paused the sale process in June when it became very apparent that the global supply chain issues, that have affected every business, were not going away. The seller rightly made the decision in June 2021 to focus on his customers and suppliers. He and his team have done a stellar job. The company will finish the year with its best ever performance, around $8.2M in revenue with record earnings. The seller now has a better handle on expectations and how to manage the process for orders-deliveries-inventory. He expects a very solid 2022 year but, given supply issues, 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. LINK TO TEASER

On Hold Opportunities

RC Advisory has a quality business on 'pause': $10M+revenue auto collision repair business; taken off market due to the initial and highly impactful COVID shutdown from March 2020 through June 2020. As vehicles have returned to the roads the auto collision repair operation returned to full capacity in Q1 2021. We expect this business to have a solid and very profitable 2021 year; it may be back on the market in 2022
