Calder Capital is working with an individual buyer to identify potential companies for acquisition. Our client has a broad industry outlook, focusing on B2B businesses ideally with a physical product, due to his previous experience working on behalf of a large capital equipment manufacturer and distributor in heavy equipment marketing, sales, and management capacities.
Our client is also open to the possibility of a consumer-facing service business if the right team and processes are in place. The client is looking to take a sole ownership position of the company. With big picture thinking and a long-term vision, our client desires to take over a business with extreme care to support existing employees and customers as best as possible.
Ideally, the business is within an hour’s drive from his home in Grand Rapids.
Target: B2B businesses ideally with a physical product. Potentially a consumer-facing service business if the right team and processes are in place.
Geography: Within roughly 60 miles of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Revenue: Profitable businesses with revenue in the range of $1-3M. Ideally, the business is generating over $100k between profit and the owner’s wage.
Valuation/Deal Structure: The client prefers to buy 100% of the business and be the sole owner.
Automatic Disqualifiers: Our client is not interested in restaurants, bars, liquor stores, or franchises. In addition, he does not want to pursue companies in which there is a large, unjustifiable disparity between the financial statements and the tax statements.

Our client is an individual buyer with over 20 years of experience in the capital equipment manufacturing and distribution industry.
