“As a purchaser of a Gilbert and Pardue Advisors (GaP) listing, I cannot say enough about the level of professionalism from transaction start to finish. The process began with receiving a presentation (deck) of the offering, of which I was able to forward to my financial team, making no adjustments. In over 30 acquisitions completed to date, we have always needed to spend countless hours on financial preparation. This was a signal from the beginning that GaP did their due diligence and prepared their listing to be sold with full transparency. It was very evident that they only took on clients that had viable and profitable entities. Once our Letter of Intent was agreed upon, we began the Due diligence process, where we were besieged by the COVID-19 Pandemic. From travel limitations, financial roadblocks, and overall health and safety of everyone involved, the delays became a real issue, and closing was delayed on two occasions. However, Matt Gilbert and his team at GaP kept all parties focused on the big picture, provided daily communication, and got the transaction to the finish line. After the transaction was completed, GaP remained involved offering any assistance and resources needed to ensure that both parties were satisfied, and that the enterprise would continue in a prosperous manner. We look forward to working with GaP Business Advisors in the future and would highly recommend them to any business seeking professional intermediary and consulting services.”
