The rise in middle market M&A in Charlotte has led to another successful transaction; the sale of Charlotte T-Shirt Authority. The deal was facilitated by Viking Mergers & Acquisitions, a middle market M&A firm that has represented over 500 business since 1996. Charlotte T-Shirt Authority was founded in 2002 by Keith and Nancy Abrams with a focus on providing wholesale screen printing and embroidery services. Their dedication to excellence and quality resulted in high growth for the business and ultimately, Charlotte T-Shirt Authority became one of the largest screen-printing companies in Charlotte.
“The level of quality in Charlotte T-Shirt’s products was second to none”, says Greg White, Senior Advisor at Viking Mergers. “That and their reputation for customer service made them a fantastic client for Viking and I knew we’d sell their business very quickly”, Greg continues. The buyer market for businesses like Charlotte T-Shirt is so strong that within 72 days of listing the business, the transaction was finalized and an exceptional buyer was identified.
“The Viking team did an awesome job in walking me through the sale of my business. The level of communication and ‘hand-holding’ was exceptional”, says Keith Abrams, former owner of Charlotte T-Shirt Authority. Since the sale of his business, Keith Abrams plans to enjoy time with his family before eventually pursuing new business endeavors.
