Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
Ahern & Associates, the leading consulting company for mergers and acquisitions in the transportation and logistics industry has experienced yet another record-breaking year as they continue to help clients increase their operating footprint and profit margins.
Facing an industry in increasing flux business owners seeking to consolidate or sell their company are finding the process more complicated than ever. They don’t know where to go, how the process evolves, what the stumbling blocks are, or how a company should be priced based upon current market conditions. Over their history, Ahern & Associates has successfully positioned itself as the largest concentration in America of expertize in handling these uncertain procedures which has made their services irreplaceable for their clients.
Uniquely, Ahern is not a business broker or an investment banker, their special program assists sellers in what is called “crossing the finish line.” Ahern has a special program where a member of Ahern’s consulting staff personally visits a potential seller on-location for a 3-day period in which they will review all facets of their operations, rates, customers, lanes, systems, and operating costs. Ahern will then provide a detailed written report and presentation on their observations and what needs to be done before the company can be strategically placed onto the market to sell. As part of Ahern’s process, Ahern provides a detailed analysis of the potential selling price of the business based upon current market conditions and provides a roadmap on how to provide the sellers with an acquisition team that includes proper legal and accounting representation, as well as representation to market the business.
The program has been so successful in achieving its aims that CEO Andy Ahern has even attached a money back guarantee. If they are able to complete an operational assessment on a potential seller and Ahern is able to introduce that seller to one of their clients and conclude an acquisition, Ahern will refund the consulting fees.
This confidence is well-founded and their company website is filled with testimonials and praise from clients. Two recent additions from satisfied clients are prominently displayed for internet users. “On behalf of Elaine and myself, I would like to take this opportunity to again thank you and your staff for the professional way your firm handled the process to eventually affect the acquisition of my firm. Thank you Andy for your guidance in providing us with an affordable and competent legal team, whose thoroughness and communication was great. When I felt confused and down, your encouragement was much appreciated. Although I've been contacted by numerous M&A firms over the years, your firm always came to the top with your continuous e-mail communications and personal contact. I would not hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone who is interested in selling their business."
Another client wrote, “Andy, on the other hand, sent in an industry expert before he did anything, to review our company. He spent three days, on site, evaluating our business model, reviewing financial statements, customer base; to name a few, and went as far as to interview a cross-section of all employees. When Andy got into the picture, he took the time to match a buyer not only to the current business culture, but the personalities of the seller, and in my case, the buyer. Ahern did an outstanding job on all fronts. I have a great respect for both Andy and his company because of the way he sets high priorities for himself as well as those who work with the integrity, character, commitment and compassion that he displays. I would highly recommend Ahern & Associates.”
