testimonial_walker_alliance
[quote author=’Dick Longo, President & CEO of Walker Magnetics’]

“After several failed attempts to restructure the company, Walker Magnetics teamed up with the team at Covington Associates.  Covington introduced a more focused approach to the problems, minimized the distraction within the company due to the sale process and brought only qualified bidders to the table.  I have been involved in a number of sale / acquisitions previously in my career but I’ll never do another one without Covington.”

testimonial_vermontteddy_mustang
[quote author=’Elisabeth Robert, President and CEO of Vermont Teddy Bear’]

“Going private deals are perhaps the most complex and challenging type of M & A transaction. Covington Associates LLC did a fantastic job positioning the company to potential partners, managing a highly challenging and regulated process, and understanding the intrinsic value of Vermont Teddy Bear. They were our eyes and ears to the marketplace, facilitating a win-win outcome. Our shareholders realized the best available value as a result of Covington’s diligent auction. Because Covington recognizes the attributes of business integrity, we found great partners able to not only perceive future return but understand and value our Company’s culture and our mission.“
