Testimonials

Bill Sagstetter, President

The Wheatley Group stood head and shoulders above all of the other Brokers we interviewed to sell our Company…their advice and counsel was invaluable in virtually every aspect of the transaction…I firmly believe their expertise significantly increased the multiple (price), structure and terms we received. I am glad we found them and was very happy to pay their fee.

John Quatrini, President

The Wheatley Group did it all. They brought a well qualified NASDAQ Company to the table, provided excellent counsel throughout the negotiations and managed the entire transaction process with skill and discipline. I would highly recommend any seller or buyer to hire The Wheatley Group as its Merger and Acquisition Advisor.

Preston Miller, President

It was only with your skillful assistance and experience that we successfully completed the purchase of majority ownership in AEI. Thanks for keeping all parties focused and objective through what could have been very difficult negotiations. I look forward to working with you again, should we be involved in the purchase or sale of a company. Since this is the third successful transaction we’ve completed with you, I can certainly recommend your services to any prospective seller or buyer. Thanks again.

Barry Friefield, Tax Partner, CPA

I have worked with The Wheatley Group for a number of years and have found them to be highly competent advisors. They clearly understand many of the tax ramifications and nuances involved in buying or selling a business and are able to help the CPA in analyzing and providing value-added services because of their unique knowledge. I am happy to refer my clients to them as they are head and shoulders above most or all of their colleagues in the merger and acquisition profession.

I look forward to referring our clients to you in the event they are contemplating a sale or merger.

Thank you for the excellent job you performed in selling my company. In a deal filled with unpredictable situations and personalities, you accomplished my goals with class, integrity and sage counsel. I am very happy that my CPA referred you to me and I would highly recommend you to anyone interested in buying or selling a small to mid-market business.

Thomas Gyder, President

My business used the services of The Wheatley Group in the area of business acquisition consulting. I found throughout the year-long process for which I contracted with TWG, that their Advisors were always available in a timely manner to assist, counsel and research issues as they arose. I know their counsel and advice saved me from paying considerably more than the final purchase price and the savings covered their fees many times over.

Richard D. Dunseath, President

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team at The Wheatley Group for selling my business. You truly came through for me. A thousand other firms would have written my fantasy price on a napkin, listed my company, and sent a parade of unqualified “tire kickers” to take my time away from running the company. We developed a reasonable price and a dossier. You obtained pertinent information from prospective buyers and only presented interested and financially capable prospects. We received an offer quickly. I am happy and so is the new owner. I would highly recommend you to anyone serious about selling or buying a quality business.

Steven Kopp, Certified Valuation Analyst

You are the only merger and acquisition professional I know that demonstrates both a sophisticated knowledge of the transaction landscape and the ability to effectively get deals done. You have clearly shown me that you are sincerely interested in what’s best for the client. Very few advocates anywhere have the skill and discipline, as you do, to act assertively on behalf of their client, while simultaneously being able to drive a complex deal, with adverse parties, to an amicable closing. You are a vital and important part of any transaction team and I am happy to continue referring my selling and buying clients to you and your firm.

Thomas McKinley, President

You had an uncanny ability to perceive and understand various aspects of a deal and know very well how to read people and match the buyer’s interests with those of a seller. In addition, your insight and business knowledge was extremely beneficial in helping to get the entire negotiation process moving in the right direction. I would recommend you highly to anyone considering buying or selling a business.
