Inc. Magazine Ranks The Transition Companies LLC Number 625 on Its List of The Fastest Growing 5000 Companies

Dallas, TX, September 10, 2011 --( The Transition Companies, LLC (“TTC”) is pleased to announce that is has been ranked number 625 by Inc. Magazine out of the 5000 fastest growing companies in the US. Inc. Magazine’s annual comprehensive study of US businesses gathers data on and ranks growing domestic companies. This task is made all the more difficult given the challenging economic times.

Gene Sartin, CEO of The Transition Companies said: “We have re-invented the traditional merger and acquisition (“M&A”) industry paradigm. TTC is able to help business owners reduce the discount rate that buyers often attempt to apply to the value of a privately-held company before they enter the market. By taking these proactive steps for our clients, we’re able to assure the highest market value for their companies.”

Even with the traditional financial services sector facing some hardships, The Transition Companies has posted a 3 year sales growth of 512%. Industry experts believe this is due to TTC’s unique business model. TTC is the only professional services firm in the market that includes both Business Optimization Consulting services along with a Merger and Acquisition advisory practice.

“In- house collaboration between TTC’s Business Optimization Practice Group and its M&A Transaction Specialists brings value to our clients throughout our entire business relationship rather than simply at the closing table,” said Mike Ryan, Executive Vice President.

Mike Allen, a principal at TTC added: “Buyers know they will pay more for a company that has engaged TTC but they welcome the opportunity to acquire a company with greater future sustainability.”

The Transition Companies LLC, headquartered in Dallas, Texas is a leading Mergers and Acquisition ("M&A") firm specializing in confidentially opening the market to maximize the value realized by owners when selling their privately-held companies. TTC also provides business optimization consulting services for companies that want to increase earnings now or increase market value for a future sale.
