Marine Manufacturing With Us And Europe Operations For Sale

Asking Price:
Over $5M
Sales Revenue:
Over $5M
Cash Flow:
Over $2.5M

The company began as a distribution enterprise catering to the Boating Industry with a single product out of Italy. The France based entity has evolved into a world leading manufacturer of its own proprietary shaft seal product:

- U.S Operations - 56% of Gross Revenue, 63% Gross Margin Contribution
- European Operations - 49% of Gross Revenue, 62% Gross Margin Contribution

The company continues to distribute industry leading third-party products in protected territories (North America, Europe) that varies by product - being the World's number one supplier in several.

Financial Summary:
Combined Operations (TTM 9/30/22):
- Sales - $15,993,003
- Adjusted EBITDA - $3,630,906

The Company sells its products to a wide range of customer classes with no concentration. Direct-to-consumer represents approximately 27-30% of the volume and the balance to retail, boatyards, and stocking distributors. D2C is solid margin business.

One of the two operations' product range is so popular that large industry players must maintain them in stock. Examples of such clients include retailer customer West Marine with 200+ locations, and wholesale/distributor Land & Sea that has with 17 locations.

West Marine is pushing suppliers to have more products, so they have fewer suppliers (they do not like to deal with single line companies) and Fisherman’s Supply in Seattle is a great example of retailers seeking a one-stop shop experience.

As a company, it has been very conservative through the years, more tuned to always remaining profitable, sometime at the expense of growth. The owners are confident that a more aggressive strategy could significantly increase its reach in the next three to five years with the existing product line.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

Growth can come from new product lines and geographic expansion. They have statistics showing how adding salespeople or distributors to a market can lead to significant sales increases. With 37% of boat owners being new ones in the last two years, there is immense potential for retrofitting and improvements of boats that were in storage or yards.

Reasons for selling:

After over 40 years the owners decide it is time to exit.

One of the two owners is looking to retire in the near-term, and the second owner will phase out over several years and intends to remain with the Company if the acquirer would like him to continue for a time pending a mutual agreement.

41 Years

Other Information

Support & training:

They have been able to retain highly dedicated, motivated long-term employees, and have very low turnover. A second-tier management team is in place, and one of the two owners will remain on board for an extended period, while the other will remain available on an as-needed basis.
