The Sale of Graff to Penhall

“The decision to sell the business was a difficult and emotional one for me and my family. We engaged Spara to help us in the sale process.  Their involvement included managing the entire sale process for us, but they also helped us out significantly with the emotional aspect of the sale.  Quite frankly, without Spara’s involvement, I don’t think that I would have gone ahead with the sale.  They really did hold our hand through the process.”

Richard Graff  |  President,
The Graff Company Ltd.

Two-Phase Shareholder Buyout and Recapitalization of Fer-Pal

“If not handled properly, transactions like ours can fall apart and damage long standing relationships due to the sensitivity over both the most serious issues and also what can appear to be the most mundane issues. Spara acted as both a buffer and an objective third party to help us work through all aspects of the transaction and still maintain the strong relationship that we have as business partners and friends. In addition, I was very impressed with how Spara managed the financing process. They added tremendous value with their knowledge and insight of the various capital options and how they negotiated on our behalf.  We are very thankful to the team at Spara Capital for making this happen. They did a great job for us!”

Shaun McKaigue  |  Vice President,
Fer-Pal Construction Ltd.
