In the dynamic world of mergers and acquisitions, the road to success can often be fraught with hurdles and uncertainties. The key to navigating these challenges is having a trusted guide at your side, one with a track record of delivering positive outcomes for their clients. This was precisely the case when the owners of The Kaelin Corp, operating as Laser Expedited Freight, in Streetsboro, Ohio, partnered with IAG M&A Advisors in their endeavor to sell their business.
Late in 2022, the owners of Laser Expedited Freight approached IAG with a view to sell their company. Known for its timely delivery and exceptional customer service, Laser Expedited Freight had established a reputable name in the transportation industry. However, selling a successful business involves more than just a strong operational record; it requires expertise in market valuation, marketing strategy, and buyer acquisition, among other things.
Recognizing this, Laser Expedited Freight chose IAG as their trusted partner in the selling process.

A business valuation forms the cornerstone of any successful sale process. IAG’s experienced team used their time-tested methodologies and comprehensive understanding of the transportation industry to provide a fair and accurate valuation of Laser Expedited Freight. This valuation was grounded in a thorough analysis of the company’s financials, market position, customer relationships, and growth potential.
Building Confidential Marketing Materials
Once the valuation was secured, the next step involved crafting compelling, confidential marketing materials. Working in close collaboration with the owners, IAG highlighted Laser Expedited Freight’s key selling points, competitive advantages, and growth prospects. The entire process was carried out while maintaining the strictest confidentiality, safeguarding the company’s business interests and relationships.
Creating Buyer Interest
Armed with the valuation and marketing materials, IAG proceeded to leverage their wide network within the industry to stir buyer interest. Through their effective and focused marketing strategy, they managed to create a strong buzz around the sale of Laser Expedited Freight, resulting in a sale in less than eight months from the market date in February 2023.
A business sale within eight months in the M&A realm is no small feat—it is a testament to IAG’s strategic planning, efficient execution, and deep industry connections.
“We couldn’t have done it without IAG. Their team is knowledgeable, dedicated, and results-driven—we couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”
The successful sale of Laser Expedited Freight stands as another feather in IAG’s cap, demonstrating their commitment to their clients, their expertise in the M&A process, and their knack for creating successful matches between sellers and buyers.
