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

Current Clients - update 11/05/2020

  • Automotive Services - this $9M+ revenue company is recognized up and down the west coast as best in class and has seen steady growth every year. We completed 95% of Due Diligence and the Purchase and Sale Agreement documents with an interested buyer. With the onset of the COVID19 pandemic both parties have put this on the shelf for the time being. This business is building back revenues gradually as things open up. We expect a restart in Q1 2021 and to move to closing.

  • Woodinville Winery - This well established, award winning and profitable 3,000 case winery is located in Woodinville, WA.  It is known for high quality red wines- varietals and blends.  The winery inventory is bottled/cased and set for the next four wine club releases in 09/2020, 11/2020, 02/2021 and 04/2021 - for the new owner this will provide nice cash flow and allow for meaningful connection to and retention of wine club members in the transition.

  • Site Development Construction Company.  This $11.5M revenue company is involved 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.  It has higher gross margins than similar companies.  Link to Teaser UPDATE: we're close to executing an LOI and moving into Due Diligence with a strategic acquirer.

  • 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. UPDATE: we've executed an LOI and are moving into Due Diligence with a strategic acquirer.

  • High-end Furniture retail operation: a very profitable $6.5M revenue Puget Sound business that has navigated well the COVID19 downturn. Year end projected revenues will be off only 9% from norms in spite of a 2 1/2 month closure- a validation of the company's position of strength in its market. We've just engaged the client and expect to bring the company to market in November. Link to Teaser
