MERGER & ACQUISITION CONSULTANTS
PCT Mergers & Acquisitions Virtual Conference
The typical drivers that motivate a PCO business owner to sell include plans to retire, an unexpected death or disability in the family, a change of direction by children previously expected to continue a family business, a divorce, a bankruptcy, price multiples too sweet to ignore, and/or the desire to launch a new career. Whether you are forced to sell quickly or have a longer time horizon, it’s important to have an exit strategy. Participants in this session will leave armed with an understanding of:
- How to create an exit plan.
- What factors are considered in determining fair value for your business?
- The best buyers are given your financial and timing requirements.
- The paperwork needed to negotiate and consummate a definitive deal.
- The most important deal terms that go beyond price.
- Understanding your future financial lifestyle needs post-closing.

M&A Recent Transactions
There’s no way to determine how much damage COVID-19 will do to the pest management M&A landscape. While pest management firms should fare better than many other industries, there clearly will be economic damage. That said, the global firms that drove higher valuations recently have done a total “about face,” and deal flow has flipped from waterfall to small trickle.
Last week, Dan Gordon, managing partner of PCO M&A Specialists, addressed mergers and acquisitions in the pest management industry in the first of a series of webinars titled “COVID-Proofing Your Pest Control Business.”

When the LEADERS of the Pest Management Industry Decide to Sell Their Businesses, They Choose the LEADERS of the Pest Management Merger and Acquisition Business to Help Them Sell their Businesses for Maximum after Tax Dollars.
We are fortunate that we had the PCO M&A Specialists team to look after our interests, find the right deal, negotiate and structure it for maximum after-tax dollars. They did everything they said they would do for us always looking out for our best interests. We highly recommend this team of experts to any owner who’s contemplating the sale of their pest management business.
When the time came to sell, we knew that Dan Gordon, CPA, his attorney partner, John Corrigan, and their team of MBAs and CPAs would get us the best deal on all
aspects important to our family. PCO M&A Specialists also did an outstanding job coordinating all the moving parts leading up to the consummation of the transaction.
Selling a long time established family business is a huge and very emotional decision. Dan and John helped us make the decision to sell, and did a great job getting us the best offer while making sure that we minimized the tax bite. I can’t say enough about how they navigated the valuation and the tax and legal minefields in getting our deal done!
The PCO M&A Specialists team worked very closely with me to help me achieve my primary goals. Dan, John, and the entire PCO M&A Specialists team are seasoned professionals, and their expertise in the finances and unique legalities of the pest control industry resulted in a deal that went smoothly and achieved an outcome that exceeded my expectations.
The PCO M&A Specialists team are CPAs, Analysts, MBAs and a transactional attorney ready to help. Their skill set includes determining value, marketing sellers to many buyers who have significant cash, are ready to buy, and who they have great relationships with. It’s a very powerful combination of talent that puts a seller in the driver seat.
Their expertise is far reaching and multidimensional. They don’t just broker the deal, collect a commission and leave you to your own accountant or attorney who may not be familiar with how pest industry deals get done. They are a team of seasoned professionals who are ready to help.
Based on my own experience I think PCO M&A Specialists, not unlike my New Mexico applicator’s license, are #1 in delivering on their service promise. They’ve assembled an outstanding team of professionals that help clients interested in selling their businesses achieve maximum value.
I count my blessings for having been able to work with and come to rely upon such an experienced business brokerage team as PCO M&A Specialists. They did everything they said they would do with great precision and were always looking out for the best interests of my wife and me. It doesn’t get any better than that!
