Our business grew quickly to a size that we were no longer comfortable operating (large purchase orders, multiple staff, wholesale accounts across Canada, etc). We originally had our business listed with a realtor who not only did an inadequate job marketing the sale of our business (only getting one NDA signed in a month), but also significantly undervalued it. After that listing was terminated, we decided to reach out to Tim at Gateway. Initially we were hesitant about the up front evaluation fee (about $3000) but after learning that this fee came off the final commission price, we decided to pull the trigger. Gateways evaluation of our company was EXTREMELY thorough (took about two weeks)… their financial analyst, Ryan, asked for tons of documents and went through everything with a fine tooth comb and came up with a final number that was approximately 10% higher that what our first realtor had valued the business at. Once the business was on the market, we received multiple offers and accepted an offer within the first week. Based on Tims guidance, we ended up accepting a lower offer with less conditions (financing, etc) that he felt had a stronger potential of closing with new owners that we were told had the background and experience to to take our business to the next level. We felt comfortable that our business was going to the right people and even the “low” offer that we accepted was still $35,000 higher that what our original Realtor had valued our business at. Everything went smoothly and the sale of our business was closed in 60 days. The bottom line is that Tim got us more money for our business than we had originally thought it was worth, helped us identify a strong buyer who had the experience and financial backing to take our business to the next level (this was very important to us)2, and closed the sale of our business in record time. We highly recommend Gateway business brokers and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.

I was considering selling my food distribution business and I hired Gateway to do a valuation. I started receiving offers and eventually found someone who was a great fit. I feel like the business is in great hands and is on its way to new levels. I would recommend Gateway; Tim and his team are keen and professional.

We recently made the life changing decision to sell our campground and officially retire. Tim Blais and Gateway Business Brokers were our partners in this transition. Tim brought his knowledge and skills to the search for a buyer and it was critical to our success. I appreciate his professionalism and dedication to his clients. Thanks for your guidance and support in getting us to our next adventure.

Gateway Business Brokers

Our most important focus is to be known to care about adding value to people’s lives more than anyone else.

For these reasons, Gateway is often required to support both parties to ensure a successful transition. This balanced, advisory approach is for your benefit of both parties, regardless of which side of the table you are seated.

• We place a priority on maintaining transparency in the sale and purchase of every business.
• We honour our duty to hold every transaction in the strictest confidence to protect your privacy and the viability of the sale.
• Both buyer and seller can expect loyalty and full disclosure from Gateway Business Brokers throughout the transaction.

When you work with our top-of-the-line professionals, rest assured the value you receive from us will always be greater than your investment.
