Sun M&A fought hard on my behalf without being confrontational. I wanted to stay on after the transaction so it was important that I protect my relationship with the buyer. They were skillful at exceeding my purchase price expectations without hurting my relationship.
President, Ferranti Steel
I couldn’t be happier with the outcome, but, I am especially pleased with my decision to work with Sun M&A. From our initial meeting through the due diligence process, all phases of business, operations, legal, and accounting were shepherded by the team at Sun. Their skills were most evident when the complexities of this transaction were at their peak.
CEO, High Five Products, Inc.
From the creation of the offering memorandum through due diligence and eventual contract negotiations, Sun's belt and suspenders approach and encyclopedic knowledge combined with unmatched expertise was essential to the process. Perhaps the most meaningful testimony is that without hesitation I would gladly call upon you to represent me.
CEO, Intelligent Search Technology, Ltd.
The process of selling the Company was a really long and challenging journey. The professional support of Sun Mergers & Acquisitions made this endeavor much easier. I have to particularly thank Bob Eatroff and Gary Leonardi for their keen cooperation. As our advisors, Bob and Gary proposed creative solutions during negotiations to effectively overcome significant obstacles in order to get the deal done. Their experience, knowledge, and professionalism was instrumental in the successful closing of this transaction.

President & Principal, L M F, LLC
I started my company 20 years ago with very little capital. I was forced to continually reinvest in the company and as a result, about 80% of my net worth was tied up in the business. This transaction was crucial to my retirement. Their strategy, attention to detail, and patience was crucial in achieving a successful outcome and limiting the stress that would have been present if I had tried to go at it alone.
President, TestPak, Inc.
I acquired my company over 20 years ago and was approaching a stage in my life where I wanted to travel and dedicate my time to my family. An exit was the right choice for me and after working with Sun I can attest that seeking their services was the best choice for achieving my professional and personal goals.

We couldn't be happier about the way things have played out [and] are especially pleased with our decision to work with Sun.

President, US Datalink
My client recently hired Sun to assist with identifying a blue chip candidate to purchase the business. I have had clients use brokers in the past, with mixed results.

Partner, Wittlin, Cain & Dry, LLP
We had discussions to sell with a few of the big operators but it went no where until we got Sun involved. Sun prepared a book on our company, presented it to various buyers, and generated a lot of interest. They negotiated the whole deal, including other elements that were important to us. Everything turned out as well as we could have hoped for.
President, A and B Co., Inc.
While we may know the ins and outs of our own business, the ability to convey the tangible assets and intangible goodwill to a buyer is best handled by an M&A professional with extensive experience within your industry. The team’s guidance enabled our Company to achieve very favorable transaction terms in record closing time! I would recommend to anyone that you welcome a conversation with Sun.
Jerome P. Conlin
CEO, Vogel Bus Company, Inc.
Sun and I worked on a complex and emotional deal and they were both tireless and incredibly focused on doing what was best for our mutual client. Sun added significant real value for the client throughout the entire process. I look forward to working with them again and recommending Sun on future matters.

Sun helped me understand the process of selling my company and helped me through every step. They educated me upfront on what to expect and what I needed to do to prepare my business and more importantly prepare myself for this life changing event. They referred excellent professionals and were instrumental in exceeding my personal goals.

I did not have to sell my business. I only would entertain the idea if I was able to achieve a premium value for the company. Through Sun's efforts, I received a premium the was more than 30% higher than I had thought possible.

Principal of RazorFocus
I thought that selling my business in a challenging economy was not a good idea. Sun was able to find a perfect buyer and arrange for a premium "all-cash" deal with a company I love working with.
Owner, Superior Manufacturing
Sun was invaluable in helping negotiate to find the best value and fit for me and my Firm. Sun helped us work through challenging issues enabling me to develop and maintain a strong relationship with the acquirer that will continue through my new position with them.
Founder & President of Clinton Office Products
Sun helped me through every step of this emotional process. Most potential buyers wanted to pay common industry multiples based upon a percentage of revenue with minimal cash at closing. Through Sun's efforts, we achieved a purchase price in excess of the industry standard, and I received mostly cash at closing and a short term note.
CEO, Protectors Security Services, Inc.
Sun M&A is a firm of professionals who really go to bat for their clients. I have never seen a firm get as immersed in every step of the process like they did on behalf of my clients.
CPA, Sax Macy Fromm
Before Sun, I had interviewed many brokers and intermediaries. I learned over time that Sun was 100% committed to helping me achieve my goal. They were a true partner to me through the endeavor of selling my company and even carried me over the finish line.
