Things To Consider When Looking To Sell:

  • The landscape industry continues to undergo consolidation to achieve economies of scale
  • The labor market continues to be an issue and the application of technology is driving sellers to exit before putting more capital at risk to grow their businesses alone
  • The demand for landscaping services has continued despite rising prices and is expected to continue through 2022 even with interest rates and inflation rising
  • New buyers continue to enter the market, led by private equity groups and experienced consolidators with large amounts of amounts of private capital
  • Efforts to reduce the federal debt may cause Congress to raise taxes on capital gains or reduce the exemption limits on estate taxes soon
  • Landscape companies with EBITDA more than $1 million are still in demand, although most advisors are saying we may have just seen the peak of pricing, there are still buyers seeking healthy companies for sale.
