Client Testimonial

“Our shareholders selected TM Capital after interviewing several potential candidates largely because TM presented a more compelling case for marketing companies. Our decision was ultimately validated through achieving an outcome on a time schedule that greatly exceeded our expectations. Specifically, TM was instrumental in thoroughly describing the complexities of Climax’s business; coaching the management team to clearly present the value of the Company to potential acquirors and working through the complex negotiations associated with the stock sale of an over 100 year old manufacturing business.””
- Lee T. Hirschey, Chairman, Climax Manufacturing Company
