Barton Manufacturing, Inc.

In August 2010, Barton Manufacturing's owners contacted CFA Chicago for help with a business exit strategy. They were considering the merits of both a 100% sale vs. a recapitalization. After meeting with Bob Contaldo, Managing Director and Principal, Barton's owners decided a recapitalization was their best option.

Corporate Finance Associates helped the owners of Barton find the perfect buyer by tapping into several decades of in-depth industry specific knowledge and experience. Michigan based TAG Holdings and Seneca Partners have partnered with the existing management team to expand the scope of Barton's services and capabilities to build on its history of growth and success.

"The current M&A market demands an advisor who understands the challenges and has the experience to navigate the uncharted waters of today's economy. Proper deal structure, financing sources, a proven marketing process producing competing offers from strategic and financial buyers on a global basis and an experienced team to manage the transaction through unforeseen challenges, emotions, and the incredible detail involved in completing a transaction that is right...really right, is critical."
