Testimonials

  • 

“After meeting with Redcap&Truss for the first time in June, they immediately identified options that could help us take our company to the next level. I am incredibly excited about the future of First Pass and Whipcord. Together, we have the opportunity to create value for agriculture stakeholders with new digital products.”

    First Pass Technologies
    Matt Coutts, CEO, First Pass Technologies
  • As Excel was growing, it became evident that we required a strategic partner to assist in the continued growth of the Company.  Redcap&Truss identified UIG, as a strategic partner that would provide us with additional expertise in the construction industry while enabling us to continue to grow our business.”

    Excel Projects
    JD Kehler, shareholder of Excel Projects Ltd.
  • When we were having preliminary discussions with Big Bore, we had a general sense of what a fair deal would look like from a money perspective.  The guys at Redcap&Truss confirmed our initial thinking, but also brought to the table some creative ideas on the other non-financial deal terms that we were not as familiar with. They did a great job in a short amount of time and negotiated a great deal for all sides .”

    Big Stone Boring
    Michael Dorsett, shareholder of Big Stone Boring Ltd.
  • “I initially met Redcap&Truss at the end of 2012. At that time they advised me to continue to grow my business as they thought it was too early to sell it.  By the summer of 2014, we engaged them and they thoroughly managed the sales process through the end of 2014 ensuring that our business was sold just prior to the downturn in 2015.”

    Glacier Ridge Ventures
    Craig Heitrich, majority shareholder of Glacier Ridge Ventures Ltd.
  • Patrick and Chris were valuable resources as we refined our business plan and sought out equity partners. We continue to lean on their expertise as we develop and grow our business.

  • I didn’t want to shop around and knew I wanted to sell my business to CEDA.  However, I wanted to make sure I was getting a fair deal, not only on the sale of my equipment, but also as it related to my future employment.  Redcap&Truss walked me through what a fair deal would look like and negotiated all the key deal terms that worked for both CEDA and I. The guys were always available for a late-night chat and were patient with any questions I had throughout the process.”

    Breakthrough Oilfield Services
    Derek Loomis, majority shareholder of Breakthrough Oilfield Services Ltd.
  • “Chris and Patrick did a fantastic job of guiding our shareholder group on how to sell our business. They handled all the little details, set up a process that gave us piece of mind that we were getting a fair price for our business and gave us no nonsense and honest answers to all our questions. We are extremely pleased to have hired the Redcap&Truss team.”

    TH Vac
    Tim Harris, majority shareholder of TH Vac
  • We had a unique process where we almost sold to one group, realized it wasn’t the right party or time, continued to run our business and eventually sold to CEDA two years later.  The Redcap&Truss guys worked with us all through that time, continued to monitor the market and narrowed the list of potential buyers until we were satisfied that CEDA was the right fit. The guys took care of managing all the paper work and I was able to manage and continue to grow my business during the entire process.”
