Looking to acquire/invest in private companies in Illinois producing minimum of $1MM EBITDA

My partners and I are looking to acquire or make a significant investment in a solid, privately held business in Illinois. We are interested in companies that produce a minimum of $1MM in net income. The following industries are of interest to us: manufacturing, distribution, and some service related. We are not business brokers; we are an investment group.

You may rest assured that we are very serious people with the backing to complete a transaction in a timely manner.

While I do not want you to interpret this solicitation as an indication that we will overpay for the business, we are, nevertheless, prepared to pay a fair price for the firm as long as it is well run, with a solid group of employees.

We are fully prepared to pay a percentage finder's fee (based on involvement) for your services in the event that we acquire a firm that you have introduced us to.

Well since you didn't get any other takers I'll throw out another idea. We're a management company seeking investors for niche roll-up strategy. Specifically, we're seeking to acquire and manage a chain of existing car wash businesses. Our targets are poorly run businesses on great pieces of property. These are cash flowing businesses that need a face lift. You'll find the car wash business has all the components of an industry dying for this type of strategy. Highly fragmented, no brands, lack of talented operators. My partner has been doing this for 20+ years and is widely recognized in the industry. Margins are excellent, downside protected by RE. Any questions feel free to ask.
