If you believe everything you read online or in the propane business publications, you know, the ones that don’t just share how rosy the propane industry always is, maybe you’ve felt a chill run down your spine. That cold, unsettling dread is likely compounded if you’ve been considering selling your propane company. There’s a few tales out there about propane business owners, just like yourself, who have recently sold their propane business…only to discover months down the road they should have chosen a better partner to take to the dance. Trust me, we’ve heard all of these stories, and Jeff and I know many of these propane owners personally—after all, we’ve been to many “dances” in our time working in the propane industry—but there’s one big difference between your propane business and all those others.
Propane business owners who have selected ThompsonGas as the buyer of their propane company realize we look at more than balance sheets or how low of a purchase price we can offer. When you research ThompsonGas you will quickly understand we make your employees, customers and of course your legacy our main priorities. We have been helping propane businesses understand what is most important in an acquisition, and believe me, it’s not about simply increasing our location count.
It’s just not in the ThompsonGas DNA to roll the dice and hope we don’t bite off more than we can chew in regards to acquiring a propane company. We thoroughly investigate all scenarios, performing our due diligence with total transparency. Most importantly, we are able to identify and accurately predict not only how acquiring your propane business will be a positive impact on ThompsonGas, we also research how an acquisition will benefit your propane company as well.
With all that being said, you may think based on recent industry developments now isn’t really a good time to look into any type of decisions regarding your propane business. Honestly, nothing could be further from the truth. Now really is a great time to sell your propane company, especially when you are considering to sell to ThompsonGas.
