During the acquisition negotiations, there were several personal issues which could have been extremely difficult. The issues were resolved very easily because Metapoint seemed to innately understand what was really important and what really mattered. Throughout the process, there was mutual trust.”
Bill Gundy, selling shareholder of NPC Inc., a past Metapoint investment

Metapoint has been acquiring companies for over 28 years, and this experience has given us a strong understanding of the many diverse reasons businesses are sold. Whether a transaction is driven by retirement, the buyout of a business partner, recapitalization for growth, or some other reason, we take the time to understand the key issues behind the decision to sell and work hard to create a transaction that addresses them. A selling shareholder can have confidence that their company will be handled ethically and responsibly.
