PHOENIX, AZ, November 19, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Ahern and Associates, Ltd., has again been engaged by an additional transportation company who seeks the guidance of the firm's CEO, Andy Ahern to assist them in furthering their strategic acquisition plans. Andy Ahern has long been known for championing the transportation acquisition market and is an authoritative source on the economy's impact on the transportation industry as a whole.
This growing, $60MM mid-sized trucking company is looking to Ahern and his staff of ex-trucking company CEO's to find an acquisition target which aligns with not only their goal of expanding their geographic footprint, but also blends with their corporate culture as well.
Management is looking to acquire a company within any of the following markets: Atlanta, GA, Indianapolis, IN, Louisville, KY or Jacksonville, FL. The potential acquisition company may be currently profitable or non-profitable with average length of haul near 525 miles, but not to exceed 700 miles.
Ahern and his team are experts in not only locating companies which are a good strategic match for their clients, but also in preparing companies who seek to be a part of a larger organization by becoming a potentially attractive acquisition target themselves.
"Throughout 2012 we've seen a massive upturn in the number of companies who have contacted us seeking to expand their geographic footprint in order to better serve their customers. In addition, we've helped prepare dozens of companies who are looking for an exit plan and want to properly position themselves to be acquired and fully expect this trend to continue through 2013," explained Ahern.
