Another Successful Sale by IBA
"Brian kept the lines of communication open at all times and sincerely put my interests at the forefront of all he did. My main priority was to keep jobs of my seven empoyees after the sale and Brian made it happen."
- Don Cave, Seller (previous owner of Cave and Company Printing)
After 26 years owning his own Main Street printing business in Westfield, Don Cave was ready to sell.
He tried on his own for two months and received several inquiries, but most potential buyers either didn’t have the money or couldn’t follow through. In the mail one day, Cave received information about Indiana Business Advisors, Indiana’s largest and most experienced business intermediary, and a business broker in Texas.
“I talked with the broker in Texas but I just wasn’t comfortable with the distance between us,” he said. “After talking with IBA, I was immediately comfortable and happy that they were close by so I chose them to help me transition into retirement.”
Cave worked with IBA’s Senior Partner, Brian Knoderer, to make it known a highly successful, competitive and profitable printing business was for sale in the central Indiana region. “We all have to carry customer service in our back pockets every day and Brian knows that,” he said. “He kept the lines of communication open at all times and sincerely put my interests at the forefront of all he did. My main priority was to keep jobs of my seven empoyees after the sale and Brian made it happen.”
It took just three months for IBA to sell Cave and Company Printing. “I think that was extremely quick,” he said. “Sometimes these things can take quite a long time. I was very happy with the fast turnaround and the successful transaction.”
As for Cave, he and his wife put their Noblesville home on the market, bought a log cabin on 50 acres of rolling hills in Green County and look froward to spending time away from the hectic pace of business.
“Do I miss it? No, I don’t,” he said. “People said I’d miss it after about three months but truth is, I don’t. And I’m extremely grateful to Indiana Business Advisors for providing for me, my family my former employees and the Westfield community through a successful sale of our business.”
