Acquisition Model

The ThompsonGas family understands every propane business comes with a unique set of specific needs. Like leaves on a tree, no two propane acquisitions are the same. When you choose to sell your propane company to ThompsonGas we are committed to working with you to ensure the agreement suits your requirements as well as ours.

Propane Seller’s Options

ThompsonGas has successfully facilitated several propane acquisitions in recent years, and have discovered the overwhelming majority of purchases fall into one of the following categories.

The Propane Seller Exits The Industry

This is the most traditional situation. In this case, the propane seller is looking forward to retirement and is prepared to move onto to the next stage of their life.

The Propane Seller Transitions Gradually From The Industry

There are certain instances in which the propane seller prefers to remain with the company for predetermined period of time, usually taking on a smaller role in order to acclimate and introduce employees and customers to ThompsonGas.

The Propane Seller Remains With ThompsonGas

For some propane sellers, remaining active in the business is a priority. We have had great success in specific acquisitions in which propane sellers have selected to remain with ThompsonGas, continuing their career with a true industry leader.

No Other Company Will Provide You More Flexibility

Whether you’re looking to retire and leave the industry, or simply want to stay and grow the business, we’ll get you the capital you need without sacrificing your reputation or values. Simply put, no other company will provide you more flexibility.”
