Houston, TX - Transworld Business Advisors of Houston is pleased to announce the successful sale of its clients' prominent Texas Metal Building Manufacturer to a strategic buyer. The acquisition, which includes the business and real estate, was completed for an impressive sum of $12.2 million. The buyer, a large conglomerate based in Indiana, is renowned for its expertise in the building industry and has a strong focus on strategic expansion.

Leading the way in orchestrating this remarkable deal was Carmen Hanna, Senior M&A Advisor at Transworld Business Advisors of Houston. Carmen is a Certified Business Intermediary and a Merger and Acquisition Master Intermediary with 10 years experience in facilitating the sale of lower-middle market businesses. Her extensive expertise and unrivaled dedication played an integral role in coordinating this complex transaction.

The Texas Metal Building Manufacturer boasts a remarkable 20-year history, marked by consistent growth and industry recognition. The decision to sell the company was driven by the seller's desire to pursue other business interests after years of dedicated operation. However, the seller will remain engaged with the buyer in a part-time consulting capacity to facilitate a smooth transition and provide valuable expertise during the immediate 1-2 year period.

The buyer’s background in the industry positions them as an ideal acquirer for the Texas Metal Building Manufacturer. Known for their aggressive growth, both organically and through successful acquisitions across the US building industry, this was an opportunity to strengthen their steel vertical. The strategic move will expand their product offering in multiple markets nationwide while significantly increasing potential sales for the Texas-based company.

The leading out-of-state strategic buyer emerged as the most attractive choice for the metal building manufacturer after Transworld and the seller engaged in extensive discussions with various potential local, national, and international buyers. The buyer’s profound understanding of the industry and the strategic growth opportunities aligned perfectly with the goals of the seller, making them the ideal candidate for this acquisition.

Regarding the leadership and management structure, the seller has agreed to continue contributing to the company's success by staying on as a consultant. This arrangement will ensure a seamless transition, uphold the seller's valuable knowledge, and provide essential guidance during the anticipated period of growth.

The acquisition process was completed in a timely manner. After six months of due diligence and negotiations, including the execution of the Letter of Intent with the seller, the transaction successfully closed nine months after the initial meeting between the buyer and seller. This comprehensive approach ensured that all aspects and documentation related to the acquisition, including the Asset Purchase Agreement, Real Estate Purchase Contract, and all related ancillary documents, were diligently negotiated, and finalized.

"We are thrilled to have Carmen Hanna, our Senior M&A Advisor, spearhead the successful sale of the Texas Metal Building Manufacturer," said Gerry Brisson, CEO at Transworld Business Advisors of Houston. "Carmen's exceptional skills, unmatched industry knowledge, and unwavering determination made her the perfect candidate to orchestrate this deal. Her expertise and personalized approach ensured that no one else could have executed this transaction with the same level of excellence. We congratulate Carmen on this outstanding achievement and are confident that she will continue to deliver exceptional results for our clients."

Transworld Business Advisors of Houston is proud to have facilitated this significant acquisition and wishes both parties continued success as they embark on this new chapter.
