It has been a very busy season for the enterprise value specialists at Ceibass:

  • Tom Fochtman, Ceibass CEO, brought together Metco Landscape of Colorado, ranked #28 in Lawn & Landscape Magazine’s Top 100 and Westhook Capital of Los Angeles and facilitated a transaction. 
  • Ceibass, acting as Advisor to the Seller, announced the acquisition of Hackman’s Landscaping Services of southern California, by WJ Landscaping of southern California.
  • Ceibass, acting as Advisor to both Buyer and Seller, announced the purchase of majority interest in GMS Grounds Maintenance Services of southern California by the minority interest.

“We have had the pleasure of working with great people on both sides of the transaction recently. Professional, respectful, quality people who know their craft,” said Tom Fochtman. “There has never been a better time to be a buyer or seller in the lawn and landscape industry. Money is still relatively inexpensive, multiples are high and businesses are growing. If you’re thinking about selling or transferring equity, now is the time.”

“Get your company’s books, systems and management in order,” added Tom. “If you need help, I can tell you that the companies that have used JR Huston Consulting have been a pleasure to work with – their financials, systems, processes, and people have been top notch, their operations a well-oiled machine. It makes transitioning a lot smoother.”
