What They're Saying

  • Nicholas Ricke
    “The entire team at Gulfstream Mergers were fantastic from day one. I had a business that I expected to be a challenge, but they had dozens of interested parties and several conference calls lined up within days!  Gulfstream Mergers was an absolute pleasure every time I spoke with them, and their communication was excellent. I never had to worry about anything from start to finish. I have recommended Gulfstream Mergers to several other business owners that I know and will continue to do so.  Gulfstream Mergers went above and beyond every step of the way. “
    Nicholas Ricke
    Founder, Nation’s Dry Out
  • David E. Criser
    “We utilized Gulfstream Mergers during the recent sale of our company. With the guidance of Gulfstream Mergers, we successfully managed to merge with a larger company positioning our firm for more growth. During the process Gulfstream Mergers was very professional and helped guide us through the process. There was no pressure to just take the first offers that came along. Gulfstream Mergers wanted us to find the “right” fit for our needs. We would recommend Gulfstream Mergers if you are interested in having a very professional M&A firm work with you for a successful deal.”
    David E. Criser
    President, Criser Troutman Tanner Consulting Engineers
  • Joseph Mason
    “We could not possibly have gone through the sale of our business without the guidance and help of everyone at Gulfstream. Since the sale we have recommended your services to many colleagues, and we know that they will be in very good hands when the day comes for them to make a decision about their business or part of it. Any professional can give advice but the difference between professionals is evident in the manner in which advice is given. Our experience with Gulfstream was positive in every respect – friendly, super-efficient, solicitous, discreet, and when necessary, encouraging.”
    Joseph Mason
    President, Landscape The South
  • “Gulfstream Mergers & Acquisitions exceeded our expectations with, both, the quantity and quality of buyers that they introduced to us throughout the process. I would highly recommend all business owners have a conversation with their team as they are extremely knowledgeable and actually took the time to listen to my story before presenting me with options. They were involved in every step from the initial meeting to close.”
    Bee Tree Hardwoods
  • “I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Gulfstream Mergers for approximately two years. After completing an acquisition in early 2017, I have continued to maintain a close relationship with Gulfstream as I have come to appreciate their values and the importance their team places on its relationships. In an industry stuffed with both unethical and uneducated firms and brokers looking no further than themselves, their own interests, and personal financial gain, I continue to be drawn to the honest, straightforward, and highly ethical approach of Gulfstream. Their communication, messages, and in person encounters are always consistent and a pleasure – demonstrating a high level of respect and commitment to pairing an ideal match between seller and buyer.”
    Joshua J. Coster
    Owner, Wil-Ro, Inc.

M&A Continues as the Leading Growth Strategy Firm

The current M&A market remains a seller's market. Unsurprisingly, the global pandemic had a negative impact on overall deal volumes in 2020. Despite the challenges, the M&A marketplace proved to be incredibly resilient with near-record activity in the second half of the year. Deal Volume is expected to continue its rebound through 2022 and 2023.

The demand for quality acquisition targets remains largely insufficient. One of the chief challenges continues to be an overall shortage of quality companies on the divest side to feed the growing appetite of both U.S.-based and global buyers. We at Gulfstream encourage business owners to look at their transition goals and objectives and determine whether a company sale in this market makes sense for their circumstances.

2022 and 2023 appear to be earmarked for incredible rebound years within M&A, driven by several factors. We believe that industry and sector convergence will continue to be major themes, with a strong leaning toward vertical integration. Both talent and technology acquisition will remain strong drivers for acquirers as they continue to look for non-traditional methods to satisfy the need for talent and technology shortages.
