Mainstreet Computers When Hard Work Pays Off

How Generational Equity helped David Carnahan sell his business

For nearly 40 years, David Carnahan built Mainstreet Computers into an industry leader. 90-hour workweeks, late nights, early starts – he’d done it all, and reached a point where he didn’t want that strain anymore. With help from Generational Equity, David’s hard work paid off. After a successful exit for a premium offer, David can now do whatever he wants, whether that’s play tennis, visit family, or simply hang out on the beach.
 
Our experience and broad buyer portfolio helped ensure David didn’t settle for his first offer. By exploring opportunities outside of his own industry, David received offers worth far more than he ever felt possible. If you’re considering what’s next for your business, or need advice on identifying the ideal buyer, speak to our Senior Business Advisors today.

I am pleased that I was able to work with Andrew Byrd throughout this experience. From the first meeting we had in Minneapolis I felt that I was in good hands. His knowledge and expertise is second to none. He guided the process consistently throughout. I feel lucky that I was pared with Andrew and could not be happier that I chose Generational Equity to handle this major life event. Thank you Andrew and GenEq for everything!

A genuine “thank you” from the bottom of my heart.

Greetings Mike. Thank you for the captivating and compelling presentation you made at the Phoenix presentation last week.

We thank you Eric and Generational Equity making our dream come true.
Larry Moore, Owner, A Company Portable Restrooms
I need to say an immense thank you to Don Ho for his stellar work ethic, attention to detail, and tireless effort. Also thank you to the whole crew at GE! Without you, Don could not do such a phenomenal job. We were shooting for closing and funding before the end of 2020, due to the uncertainty of the political landscape and taxes. I am happy to report we closed last week and will be funding tomorrow.
Dr. Caty J. Catron PhD, RN, VA-BC – Owner, Vic The Picc, LLC
I quickly recognized that Don was working for Sharpe Mixers above all else, and held our interests above others.
Jay Dinnison, Owner of Sharpe Mixers
We knew it would be a difficult task to have someone really understand our business and our market, prior to researching a possible buyer, so it was imperative that we found someone of your caliber, with definite proven experience in this area.
Rick Nowak, President/CEO, Kurz Electric Solutions, Inc.
We are extremely pleased with the way Generational Equity handled the sale of our company. Your associates, Tom and Chris, did an outstanding job of getting us (me) through the process.
Michael J Polarek, President, Paragon Packaging
The process was much more involved than I expected and your help, experience and advice was a big factor in making the negotiations go as smoothly as possible.
