New Acquisition Secured by Rory Russell—AFS Founder Closes Best Deal for Fire & Life Safety Services Provider

Fire Alarm System Services Shares How AFS Assisted in Obtaining Best Deal for the Fire/Life Safety Services Provider Company

When Dennis Miguel, owner of Fire Alarm System Services (FASS), began to look at selling his Fire/Life Safety Services Provider company as he looked towards retirement, he knew that he needed a trusted broker by his side. Rory Russell, owner of Acquisition & Funding Services (AFS), was the perfect fit to help him secure the best deal; with over 30 years and $1 Billion in mergers, acquisitions and financing experience, he couldn’t go wrong with Rory’s expertise in the field. Rory was able to successfully identify RapidFire Safety & Security as an optimal partner; he secured a mutually beneficial deal and assisted in a seamless transition.

“Identifying potential buyers of your company in a discreet manner is a challenging and daunting task even under the best of circumstances. I decided to research and identify someone who could take on this challenge and work on my behalf because I still had to be involved in the day-to-day operation of my business.” Miguel shared. “I looked for someone who was familiar with the industry, well connected to the ‘M&A Players,’ and also knowledgeable of the current multiples (both RMR and EBITA based). I was also looking for someone with a team of legal and M&A CPA professionals who could work with me to ensure a smooth transaction and provide guidance regarding potential tax implications, etc.

“Ultimately the choice became clear, and that was to work with Rory Russell of AFS. Rory has the industry knowledge, contacts, and connections; in addition to a best-in-class team of legal and financial professionals to make it all happen. AFS exceeded every expectation. Rory was always available to receive my calls, early morning or late evening did not matter. He was committed to make it all happen. If he happened to be on another call, I would receive a return call shortly thereafter. Transactions such as selling your business are challenging, stressful and emotional. My experience was no exception; however, Rory provided the balance and insight necessary to keep things moving forward to conclusion. Over time, our relationship became more than just business based; we became friends. I would highly recommend Rory Russell and his team of professionals to anyone choosing to go down the same path I chose.”
