This very successful, well-established company is a 20-year-old U.S. exporter of processed meat and poultry, dairy products and organic and natural groceries to the Asian markets, primarily to Korea, Japan, and Taiwan. Revenues have been steady in the $9-$11 million range for several years.

Competition Description

There are competitors but few with the many competitive advantages of this company. It has exclusive, long-term contracts with many popular, well-branded food manufacturers/processors. And it has a well-established, diversified customer base in countries with favorable trade policies. It has gained the well-earned trust in all these relationships because of its impeccable reputation built over many years of fair, ethical, efficient and dependable business practices.

Growth / Expansion overview

There is tremendous opportunity for growth. Additional sales staff could increase revenues in existing and new Asian markets. There are already some sales into Singapore, the Philippines, Hong Kong and Malaysia, which could be expanded. Recent or pending trade agreements are lowering tariffs making US products more price competitive in Asia. And of course there are other markets outside of Asia that could offer significant upside potential. The owner, who is nearing retirement age, has not been aggressive in pursuing growth opportunities because he has wanted to maintain his desirable work/life balance. But he has built a solid foundation on which an energetic new owner could take this business to the next level and beyond.

Support / Training Comments

The Seller expects there will be a need for a transition period to train a new owner, introduce them to suppliers and customers domestically and abroad, and to enhance the probabilities for a new owner’s success. He is willing to commit up to a year for this under a mutually agreeable consulting or employment arrangement.

Financing Comments

Seller will consider some financing for a qualified buyer
