Sale

Frontier acted as an exclusive financial and strategic advisor to, and assisted with the negotiations as representative of, Sun Graphics, Inc. in initiating and consummating this transaction.


CLIENT
For over 40 years, Sun Graphics, Inc. (Sun Graphics) provided a complete range of high-end printing solutions for discriminating clients.
SITUATION
Sun Graphics’ owners were interested in retiring. While Sun Graphics had always been known for its quality work product and had consistently demonstrated strong financial performance, particularly when compared to its peers, Sun Graphics had previously been unsuccessful in an attempt to sell the business.
RESULTS
Frontier served as the exclusive advisor on the sale creating compelling marketing materials for the business, developing a strong potential buyer pool (including a number of unique potential buyers through Frontier’s network) and generating competition among those potential buyers. The sale and marketing process led to a very competitive process which not only maximized value, but also created competitive tension to drive the valuation and structure of the sale transaction.
