Current Market Trends

Higher than Normal Valuations

for Field Service Companies.

Why? The essential and indispensable nature of these types of businesses, along with their recurring/re-occurring revenue models, is attracting the best financial and strategic buyers to actively seek acquisitions for regional and national roll-ups. This is creating some major shifts in how these businesses are valued.


The valuations being offered today for well-performing companies that meet certain criteria are significantly higher than in the past.


We are experiencing deals in which the company is being purchased 100% cash up front, the owner can leave in one-year if desired or they can take a retained interest and remain with the organization for longer to help grow and have a second bite-of-the-apple. The seller needs only to determine what deal terms best fit their objectives.

How & Why Ascend helps you get the deal you’ve always desired……..
