Has anyone considered or done a deal, where they merged with another business to create a larger Holdco? Not a business purchase or sale, but a merger, where both original owners continue. The benefit would be scale and a more attractive entry point for potential PE investors.. I run a dumpster rental business (franchise), and recently bought out some smaller operators to be the only brand in the region. Have some close business associates in allied fields (restoration/porta/temporary fencing rentals) and we have been toying around with this merged Holdco idea. Any insights would be helpful.
