What our Clients Are saying

  • “When we approached Matrix, we asked them to explore alternatives to create liquidity for a departing shareholder.  Their marketing efforts generated attractive opportunities from a wide range of capital providers; however, we ultimately decided that a minority capital raise through a senior debt instrument was the right solution and best achieved our objectives.  The Matrix team was extremely professional throughout the process and did an excellent job managing a highly complex transaction.”

    Bryan Johnson, CEO
    Shades of Light, LLC
  • “Selling our business was one of the most important decisions I’ve had to make not only for our family, but our co-workers too. When we met with Matrix I knew they were the advisors for us, they came prepared. Matrix led us step by step through the process and made sure we were fully aware of how everything would flow. When we began talks with Kwik Trip we were able to present a ‘book’ to them that was clear and thorough. The professionals at Matrix are proven experts in our industry and negotiated a very strong contract. Overall, we couldn’t feel better about our choice in selecting Matrix and Kwik Trip.”

    Andrew Bowman, President
    Stop-N-Go of Madison, Inc.
  • “We considered several options before selecting Matrix for this assignment and this experience confirms that we made the ‘right’ choice.

    David Driscoll, Chief Executive Officer
    Getty Realty Corp.
  • “Matrix helped us to achieve the maximum value for our assets, which we could not have realized without their involvement. Matrix’s process allowed us to show our assets to multiple strategic buyers, with the least amount of disruption to our business, in a relatively short period of time.”
