Beacon Completes Sell-Side Mandate for Building Materials Distribution Business
Toronto, Ontario, Canada, May 28, 2021 – Beacon Mergers & Acquisitions is pleased to announce the transaction completion of another building material-related distribution business. Beacon acted as the exclusive sell-side advisor for a national distributor of energy-efficient certified windows and doors business. The company, which contracted Beacon to confidentially run its sale process, leveraged its exclusive distribution rights and scalable, asset-light model to grow exponentially in a growing industry.
The company has a lean operating model, with low overhead and high operating margins. Growth in residential investment and regulatory changes mandating the use of higher efficiency construction products have acted as strong catalysts for the business, contributing to over 500% aggregate revenue growth over the last five years.
Finalized in May of 2021, the transaction was entirely conducted in a virtual environment, a monumental achievement for all involved. The deal was structured as a share purchase with the original owners retaining token ownership of the business, thus alleviating any concerns of transition and continuity in the business operations and client retention.
The Beacon transaction team adapted to work-from-home measures, quickly moving all operations to a secure online environment while maintaining a strong focus on data protection and confidentiality. Despite several headwinds, Beacon’s experience and extensive network across North America allowed the team to successfully value, negotiate, and close the transaction completely virtually. The Beacon team would like to congratulate all involved and look forward to seeing the ongoing growth of the business under its capable new management.
