Edison Business Advisors, the most awarded and highest credentialed business brokerage firm in Southwest Florida since 2014, is excited to announce the opening of a Columbus, Ohio office and the addition of Ray Skaug. Skaug will be managing the Columbus office.
Skaug has over 30 years of management, operations, consulting, and financial analysis experience in a wide variety of business venues. He is a Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA). He was previously an officer with a national bank and taught managerial finance and entrepreneurial management at the college graduate level as an adjunct professor.
Skaug also owns Rainer Business Intelligence. His company developed BizProBI Insight Reports a proprietary business intelligence platform. The reports facilitate early-stage financial analysis assisting business owners to maximize value and exit on their terms. BizProBI Insight Reports are now available to Edison Business Advisor clients at a reasonable fee.
2021 has been a record-breaking year for Edison Business Advisors. Steve Niehaus transacted a $5 million aluminum products manufacturer in Southwest Florida in March. Eric Gall transacted a $15 million machine shop in Pennsylvania in April. Total volume for deals transacted and presently in escrow intermediated by Gall, Niehaus, and Mike Pfeffer year-to-date is nearly $35 million.
The award-winning, highly credentialed, and talented team at Edison Business Advisors has participated in many forms of business transactions including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, spinouts, and roll-ups. Their proven process for properly preparing a business for sale, maximizing marketing exposure, and expertise in guiding the sale to completion has resulted in a significantly higher percentage of the team's listings closing than the industry average. As a result, Edison Business Advisors has been the most awarded business brokerage in Southwest Florida since 2014.
Stay tuned for upcoming announcements on our 2020 awards.
