Achieving leadership in the areas of innovation, quality of service offering and customer service
Our model is centered around the key principle that the branch managers have the closest knowledge of the local market, including the customers, competition and other market dynamics.
This is reflected in each aspect of the Group’s business, including its offering and delivery of services and its acquisition process. It is supported by the Group’s HQ function, which provides support across key areas such as complex acquisition matters, product development, performance monitoring and the sharing of best practices.
Process to be a part of JP McHale
We are looking for businesses with strong local knowledge who can leverage our strength to grow in their market. We have a streamlined process for mergers & acquisitions consisting of three steps:
Learn more about what we do and who we are. The objectives of a potential acquisition will also be disclosed.
We expect to gain a deeper understanding of your business model, priorities, and corporate culture.
If we agree to move forward from this phase we will prepare a non-disclosure agreement, a letter of intent, and a high level standardized information request.
In-depth analysis of the business and due diligence by third party advisors.
They identify key risks as well as areas of improvement that are essential to the business's success and integration plan. We expect to understand the value of your business and will collaborate on the future organizational structure.
After due diligence, we will agree on transaction documents and complete the acquisition through payment of purchase price and transfer of shares or assets.
Structure an integration plan that retains the value of the business.
The main priority is a smooth transition including onboarding employees and introducing our culture and operational model. The goal is ensuring that what works well continues while addressing areas that need improvement.
The majority of sellers choose to stay on board and become part of JP McHale which means we selected a business with a good cultural match and strong leadership.
The decision to sell a business is not often an easy one, but there are many reasons an owner might do it
While this may feel counterintuitive, the best time to sell a business is when it is doing well.
Burnout is one of the most common reasons given for selling a business. Selling the business can offer the means and the time to spend more time doing something more fulfilling.
We often meet business owners that say they have lost interest in their business. These owners simply desire to do something different.
A common reason to sell your business has a more direct connection to money. You may simply get to a point in your life when you need or want the capital.
Many business owners have dedicated their life to ensuring the success and growth of their company. These owners deserve to enjoy the fruit of their labor while still in good enough health to enjoy retirement.
Sometimes relocation goes along with retirement. For example, an owner may look forward to selling the business and moving to a new part of the country. On the other hand, relocation may be required for family reasons or for another professional opportunity.
Selling was always the plan
For some, selling the business is the plan from the start. Some types of business owners are serial entrepreneurs at heart, made to move from one business to the next.
