When colleagues who’ve sold businesses on their own tell me what they got for it, I usually think they could’ve gotten a lot more if they’d hired Catalyst. Catalyst builds value by helping to quantify the total value of the business and involving the right buyers for the business. When owners go it alone, the money they’re leaving on the table is vastly greater than the fee they would’ve paid Catalyst.

Catalyst was exceptionally helpful during the sale and we couldn’t have done it without them. At first I thought, ‘why do I need to pay an advisor like Catalyst to help me sell the business?’ I discovered that what they bring – the number of buyers, the competitive tension – is priceless. Their fee was a bargain because they delivered tens of millions of dollars in additional value by running such an effective sale process.

After building our business for 27 years, I was ready to transition to the next chapter in my life. Thinking about selling my company was a tough and emotional process, but I knew I needed to take the next step so I could spend more time with my family and do the things I loved. Catalyst managed the entire sale process, resulting in a tremendous deal for me, my family and the Ross Team.

Our transaction with United Rentals was the largest ever in the pump rental industry and one of the largest in the history of the equipment rental industry. Catalyst provided invaluable support, analytics and insights into the specialty rental equipment sectors that were instrumental to our success. The Catalyst team was a powerful resource in every phase of the transaction process.

Catalyst’s involvement and skills greatly exceeded my high expectations and added significant monetary value to the transaction for shareholders. Your knowledge of the industry, its major players and their strategic and financial motivations, along with your in-depth advice and counsel, helped navigate a very complex transaction. Thanks again for all your team did to make the sale of NES a great success!
