RE: 1202 QSBS, C-CORP DISCOUNT FOR TRUCKING/LOGISTICS

Told by biz broker that ‘all transactions in trucking are structured as asset sales’.. which makes sense, buyer can step up asset basis and depreciate.

Incorporate w/ sec 1202 QSBS is preferred structure. Is this a nonstarter, or is it not a huge issue - just subject to some discount to account for lack of basis step up value?

Also, if there are any brokers on here that are active in the trucking/logistics world - told 5-7x EBITDA multiple is range for flatbed/heavy-haul biz doing $3mm EBITDA, 12% EBITDA margins. Roughly 20% revs from brokerage. Would be interested to know if this multiple is realistic, and hear about recent transactions.
