The seller accepted and closed on an offer with an approximate enterprise value of US$40 million, or approximately two times trailing twelve months revenue. This amount was over twice the price the seller had been willing to accept several months earlier from a buyer who approached it prior to our engagement, but could not secure financing to close the transaction.
