Keystone has represented 10 privately held California based Landscape Service businesses over the past few years and has facilitated a successful sale for all 10!
We have found that commercial and high-end residential landscape maintenance businesses offer a very attractive value proposition to both strategic and financial buyers…and that is recurring revenue. Any buyer is concerned that when they take over the operations of the business, will the customers continue to do business. As long as the new owner does not change things dramatically and keeps up the same high standards of service which is currently being offered, the fall out is low. For this reason, we are able to achieve strong valuations for our landscape service business owners, especially those which have a substantial amount of recurring monthly revenues.
Benefits of using Keystone Business Advisors to manage the sale of your landscape service business:
- We understand the industry.
- We are 10 for 10.
- We have a large pool of strategic and financial landscape buyers
- We maintain strict confidentiality protocols
- We manage the entire process through closing.
- We work hand in hand with your advisors to create tax efficient strategies
As a founder of a small business, one of the most difficult decisions I had to make was selling my business. Part of that decision involved selecting a qualified company to determine my company’s value, market the company for sale and represent my interests during the sale of the business. From the initial interview of Dave Richards to the signing of the sale documents, it was obvious that Keystone was the right choice to represent my company.
Dave Richards personally handled all aspects of the sale. He first spent countless hours learning about the dynamics of my business. Only after fully understanding how I operated on a daily basis, did he felt confident in determining the company’s value. He explained the entire process of how he would market the company for sale and keep the sale confidential. Only after carefully qualifying potential buyers, did Dave bring multiple buyers to me.
Probably the most valuable service that Dave provided during the marketing and sale process was acting as a buffer between me and the buyer. There were a few bumps in the road up to the final signing of the documents, but Dave was there to smooth them out.
In summary Dave Richards exceeded my expectations. He provided exactly the services he promised and more. He more than earned his very fair commission. It was amazing, in only nine short months Dave was able to find multiple qualified buyers for me to pick from and close the deal.
