“We approached Calder Capital in July 2016 regarding our desire to divest of the ErgoStation product line, which we had manufactured for decades, however no longer fit our strategic focus to improve the way that plastic products are made. Max Friar presented us with a comprehensive and professional marketing plan, and we engaged Calder in August. We are very pleased to say that within 30 days Calder had produced 5 attractive offers from very qualified buyers! We successfully consummated a transaction in less than 3 months and are extremely pleased with the outcome. Most importantly, Calder found us a buyer with similar values and expectations as Extol, which made the transaction a joy to work on. We would definitely recommend Calder Capital to any company seeking to divest of a product line! Thank you Max & Scott for your efforts!”
