At GPA there is so much more...

Gary Penrod and Associates is the premier advisory and consulting firm for the building services contractors industry. The firm offers a full range of services to support its principal Mergers and Acquisitions activities and to provide clients with a complete suite of additional value added business services.

Mergers, Acquisitions and Intermediary Services

GPA specializes in representing Sellers in the building services contracting industry who wish to explore available options of defining an exit strategy for their business. The firm will seek and locate potential Buyers who are qualified and well respected in the industry (strategic buyers); financial buyers looking to enter the industry for the first time (private and public equity funds); and other first-time buyers looking to establish a footprint in the industry (eg. high net worth individuals).

Valuations and Appraisals

Over the years, GPA has acquired the capability to provide valuation and appraisal services ranging from “desk top”, or informal, appraisals for businesses to detailed appraisal reports performed to comply with generally accepted business valuation standards. Our valuation tools and in-house professionals can also be used to assist in structuring a specific sale transaction to take advantage of certain tax deferrals and other available benefits. The firm has extensive experience in this area and can provide those services either as part of its normal M&A activities or as a stand-alone, independent service in business valuations, fairness opinions, estate or tax planning.

Operational, Financial & Strategic Planning Assistance

GPA’s managing partner and certain of his associates have been directly involved in the industry as owner/operator or as financial officers and advisors in the industry. In those capacities, GPA can assist owners with long-term strategic planning to properly position their companies for a successful exit, realignment of operational resources, in locating and securing timely financial resources for short-term funding requirements, and/or assisting in identifying, interviewing and hiring professional managers. GPA knows the industry, understands the unique problems and issues often encountered by entrepreneurs, and frequently participates in industry events to stay on the forefront of new developments while imparting that expertise to its clients. The ultimate goal is to maximize the value of the business for the business owner by employing GPA’s experience and objectivity in managing these often complex issues.
