17 Aug Selling Your Trucking And Third Party Logistics Company
Have you considered selling your trucking company? Here are a few suggested routes you can take. One is you could hand it down to your family members, if they want to take the reins, and they could become the new managers. Another route is that you sell it to a private equity group who will find a manager to take your place and they will over see its growth and prosperity throughout the years. You could sell it to an established company that would incorporate the business into their existing model. Or, you could become part of a roll-up. I would like to talk about the second option.
Deal Capital is currently working to create a roll-up of over $200 million in revenue. The idea behind a roll-up is that there is much more value in a larger company than a smaller one. So if we are able to acquire multiple smaller companies and plug them all into one larger company, a platform company, then we have taken multiple small companies, that standing alone are not worth as much, and created one large company that is worth much more.
Deal Capital is working with a client that is creating the roll-up similar to the one described above. The greater value of this roll-up is that they are able to offer valuations 25%-40% higher than the current market valuations. This is because the larger entity’s value is so much higher. This is a great opportunity for trucking company owners who are or will be looking for an exit strategy soon. Even if you are not sure if you want to pursue the opportunity, we ask that you contact us so we can describe the opportunity further. There is very little risk involved with the deal.
