Lakin Enterprises Professional Builders


Frontier acted as an exclusive and strategic advisor to, and assisted in the negotiations as representative of, Lakin Enterprises in initiating and consummating the above transactions.

Lakin d/b/a Professional Builders (Lakin) is a construction management firm that specializes in retail interior construction or tenant infill, principally for national chains of apparel retailers, such as Nike, Limited Brands, and Abercrombie & Fitch, among others.
The owner of Lakin was seeking a successful transition out of the business. The key issues for the owner were a solid valuation given the cyclical nature of the industry and the ability for the owner to phase out active participation in the business as quickly as possible.
Frontier, through a targeted marketing and sale process to strategic, financial and entrepreneurial buyers, fostered a competitive environment that ultimately achieved an attractive price and structure that met the client’s objectives.
