“With my acquisition of Ewing and Son’s, we had a 98% customer retention rate.  We kept the sales prices the same and with the smooth transition that Proforma’s Acquisitions Team provided, it made the whole process easy. The previous Owner was happy as I have maintained all of his customers and I am extremely happy as I have grown my business and helped take it to new levels.”

I look forward to doing several more acquisitions with the team.”

Portrait of Toni S. Moore. Owner of Maverick Marketing Powered by Proforma. Million Dollar Club Member in High Point, NC

“I recently closed a deal with a company called Southern Emblem. I knew the previous owner who unfortunately passed away. The owner’s wife was unfamiliar with the industry – she didn’t know the value of the business or how to sell.  I contacted Proforma’s Mergers & Acquisitions Team and they walked me through the entire process. I reached out to Southern Emblem, took over the files and customers, and generated a great income for the wife of the former owner that had nowhere else to turn.  I have grown my company as well by taking over this acquisition and I can’t wait for the next one.”
