Location: Fairway, Kansas
Industry: Health Care- Supportive Living Facility
DVS Role: Sell-Side Advisory to Business Owners
The Buyer: Mr. Todd Childers and Scott Madsen
The Seller: Thalia House is a residential treatment facility for women dealing with eating disorders. The company was founded by Ms. Brooke Wesley, LSCSW. and Ms. Amy Sullivan, MC,RD,LD. Thalia House was established to fill a void that the founders felt existed in the local treatment community.
The Close: The founders of Thalia House approached DVS about a sale with concerns that their other professional commitments were not allowing them to devote their full attention to the business as it grew rapidly. The DVS Group found buyers with strong business acumen and health care backgrounds that also had the resources to take the business to its next level of development. DVS structured the deal so that the sellers were able to continue with the business in the therapy and consulting roles they enjoyed. DVS negotiated the deal, sourced the financing and closed the transaction within four months of their engagement with the sellers.
