New Owner Opportunity

After running a technology solutions company for thirty years the husband and wife co-founders were ready to retire. They would only consider a buyer that would continue to run the company as a family business post-acquisition.

Destined was engaged to find a buyer that had a like-minded vision.

  • Family-oriented buyer was required

  • Continued investment in the local community was a priority
  • A lasting legacy was desired

Client Results

Destined developed a clear vision for the ideal buyer and designed a transaction roadmap. The focus was to only identify buyers willing to retain the current leadership team (including family members), maintain the business in it current community and commit to a long-term investment horizon.

  • 20+ offers higher than the average industry multiple

  • Quantitative and qualitative research and analysis to select the right buyer

  • A husband & wife buyer with capital, expertise, and energy is now building on the legacy of the founders
