DALLAS, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Generational Capital Markets, Inc., member FINRA/SIPC, ("GCM") an advisor to privately-held businesses for mergers & acquisitions, is pleased to announce the release of a new case study reviewing the successful sale of key components of its client, Johnston Enterprises in 2014.
Written by the The M&A Advisor, a leading association of M&A professionals, Brenen Hofstadter, President of GCM provides critical details that lead to a successful conclusion of this transaction.
The Meibergen family, which has operated Johnston Enterprises for five generations, desired to sell and align the entire business to a single buyer while maintaining the company name and management team. However, the first round of written offers revealed that some buyers valued the Johnson grain business more than they did the Johnston port operation, (due to the fit with their own operations) and vice versa. This disparity eventually resulted in a change of strategy: a novel two-part sale of Johnston Enterprises to different buyers.
Mr. Hofstadter stated, "The work we did to find not only one but two buyers for our client was unique enough for The M&A Advisor to feel that it was a story that other intermediaries could gain from. I was pleased to be able to provide insight from our experiences last year with Johnston Enterprises."

Ryan Binkley, President of Generational Equity LLC, added, "Brenen and his team did a tremendous job working with the owners of Johnston Enterprises and came up with a really unique way to successfully culminate this deal. Brenen's skills as a dealmaker were clearly demonstrated in this transaction."
