Steve Antoline, CEO of Superior Highwall Miners (SHM), received a bid of $120 million for his mining equipment company located in Beckley, WV. He retained SSK to advise him on the sale. Over six months, we ran a structured auction process, and SHM closed the sale to Tennessee Valley Ventures for $150 million. That’s more than 20% higher than the initial offer. A good investment banker can add value, even if you already have a deal on the table.
