The National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL) Business Advisory Group seeks a buyer for a successful printing company in the Pacific Northwest that competes in the market for general commercial printing and marketing services. The company offers high-quality offset and digital reproduction services to a customer base primarily comprising midsize and large corporations with a mix of non-profit community service organizations.
“The company’s owners plan to retire and have retained the NAPL Business Advisory Group to find a buyer for their business,” says Mark R. Hahn, NAPL Senior Vice President. “Although they prefer to merge the business into another firm, they are flexible regarding the possibility that the operation continue at its current location, where the landlord has indicated that the facility’s lease may be extended on favorable terms and/or the property may be available for sale.”
The modern 35,000 square foot facility is located in a region rich in high-technology companies, support services and community organizations, and is accessible to local highways and a major interstate. Equipment includes two six-color presses, both with aqueous coaters, and an HP Indigo digital press, as well as direct-to-plate technology, and in-house folding and saddle-stitching bindery equipment.
Revenues for 2013 were expected to exceed $5 million and earnings before interest, taxes, and amortization (EBITA) have averaged 10.7 percent over the past three years, with both sales and EBITA trending upward.
“The company utilizes an industry-standard MIS system and breaks out sales and expenses according to trade class?offset printing, digital printing, mailing, fulfillment, etc.?affording prospective buyers detailed knowledge of the product mix and company positioning,” says Hahn.
