IAG Sells Ultimate Tool and Safety – South Texas

IAG Is Happy To Announce The Successful Sale of Our Client Ultimate Tool & Safety Supplies – South Texas

 

Ultimate Tool and Safety was an interesting and challenging experience.  The initial financials showed a profit close to $1.4 million.  There were more than 30 interested buyers and two offers were made within the first week.  The better, stronger offer was accepted and due diligence began. 

The Transaction Specialist, David Michaelson, personally took the buyer to meet the sellers (two partners and a son who managed the business) and all seemed well.  During due diligence, it was discovered that an inadvertent, unrecognized accounting error had occurred that more than doubled the profit on paper. 

The offer from the buyer kept getting decreased because of the changes discovered in due diligence.  The Transaction Specialist was repeatedly called upon by both buyer and seller for advice and to explain ramifications for both sides to keep the deal on the path to closure. 

After a great deal of hand holding and many meetings, a Purchase Agreement was completed.  However, the seller’s attorneys were not cooperative and wanted to make significant changes and charge significant fees. 

The seller was inclined to pass, but a new attorney, very experienced in business and with a goal of preserving the deal while protecting the seller, was recommended by IAG. 

That proved to resolve the issues and after many months of changes, negotiations, emotional ups and downs, the business was successfully closed.
