RICHFIELD, Ohio –  As part of his presentation at the Aug. 27 PCT Mergers and Acquisitions Virtual Event, Rand Hollon, a second-generation PCO and longtime industry broker at Preferred Business Brokers, will discuss the different buyer-types and how PCOs can determine what type of buyer is the best fit for them and their company.

Description: Pest control companies are purchased by different types of buyers for many different reasons. These buyer-types include large-company acquirers, private equity investors, regional and local competitors, as well as individuals with, or without, industry experience, and others. Which specific buyer-type is the best fit for you and your company? What can a seller do to appeal to as many different types as possible? Why is it important for a seller to appeal to many different types of buyers? Find out from a licensed broker who has seamlessly ushered hundreds of buyers and sellers through the transaction process. If you’re thinking about selling your business now or in the future, this session alone – led by a second-generation PCO with broad pest industry-specific M&A experience – is worth the price of admission.
