“We’re very grateful for the guidance and insight Matrix provided to help Giant Eagle secure this growth opportunity. At GetGo, our positioning of taking the ‘cons out of convenience’ means we offer the highest quality fresh foods, products and services to our customers. Our acquisition of the Ricker’s chain supports this strategy, and we look forward to bringing together the best of both businesses in Indiana.”
Polly Flinn, Executive Vice President
Giant Eagle, Inc.
“We greatly appreciate the services Matrix provided as we made the decision to exit this aspect of our business. We chose Matrix because of their demonstrated expertise in completing transactions in motor fuels distribution.”
Michael Evans, President
Atlas Oil Company
“Matrix, who has previously performed valuation work for the Company, did a splendid job offering a choice of four bank proposals. RBS Citizens was chosen because of their cash management and industry expertise.”
Jack Pester, Chairman
Pester Marketing Company
“It was a bittersweet decision for us to sell the company. But having met Tom, Spencer and Tod over the years and knowing that they knew David and were sensitive to our situation, Matrix felt like the right fit in guiding us through the complex process of finding the right buyer for our company. Our employees are family and it was important for us to find the perfect fit to preserve our family culture. Matrix’s professionalism and compassion exceeded our expectations.”
Erickson Oil Products, Inc.
“Working with the team at Matrix on the sale process, and with Rich Spresser over the past several years has been a very positive experience. While it was time for the current shareholders to monetize their investment, we look forward to seeing Pester grow with Rich’s further stewardship under the new ownership of Fortress and Phillips 66. I am excited to see the businesses continue with such well-respected organizations.”
Sam Youngblood, General Partner and Board Chairman
