"The information and insight that I discovered working through several simple activities with Stone Oak gave me a renewed sense of confidence and control over my business. I had a clear sense of what I could do to improve my business, and through that found the motivation to make improvements that have had a positive and measurable impact on profitability."
John Carvalho came highly recommended as the right person to lead the negotiations with a prospective buyer for my company. In my 30 years in business I had built a company with 15 employees doing over $10M in revenues but I had no experience with selling a business. What I needed was someone who understood the complexities of a business sale processes and would be patient enough to guide me through them. John turned out to be exactly the right person. John was very professional. He stayed on top of the details and was skilled at building an atmosphere of trust between all parties. Once the sale was completed, my buyer and both of the law and accounting firms involved in the negotiations each told me they felt the same way about John. He managed a very civil and effective process which resulted in both parties getting a deal they were satisfied with.
