Doing The Work

“Opnroad helped my company navigate a partner buyout. The assessment package they created was incredibly detailed and surprisingly easy to understand. The market assessment was clear and understandable for both us and our advisors and ensured both partners were treated equitably. Scott took the time to go over the report in great detail and answer all my questions. Great value and great service.”
“I certainly underestimated the time, energy and knowledge it takes to sell a business. It took over 2 years, going through unexpected events and serious buyers backing out at the last minutes. I seriously don’t know what I would have done without Scott’s team. I am thankful for their work, their ability to adapt to different situations and mediation skills. I am finally out enjoying early retirement!.”
