Client Testimonials

“On several occasions, we were approached with different opportunities to exit the industry. Before giving any real consideration to any of those options, my family engaged Corner Capital to provide a Fair Market Valuation for our business. As a result, we furthered our engagement to allow Corner Capital to manage the structured process for our exit strategy. Their knowledge, industry experience, and personal touch provided Lois and me the comfort needed to successfully close our transaction with Sunoco. Without a doubt, a wise decision on our part to bring the Corner Capital team into our process.”
-Jim Kolkhorst, Kolkhorst Petroleum & Rattlers Convenience Stores, Texas

“Corner Capital led us through a strategic analysis of our branded dealer business, interfacing with our Board throughout. When the Board determined to exit that segment, Corner Capital expeditiously executed our structured sale process and outperformed our value expectations.”
-Ken McPherson, The McPherson Companies, Alabama

“In our sale to PacWest, Corner Capital clearly fought for our interests, delivered exceptional value, and were available 24/7 to ensure we closed successfully. They prepared us for all the hurdles of a transaction, and their deep technical knowledge was critical. I am happy to serve as a reference for anyone considering their M&A Services.”
- Craig Eerkes, Sun Pacific Energy, Inc., Washington state

“Corner Capital successfully negotiated and facilitated my refi project and helped me find additional capital to support my ongoing growth plans. They managed all aspects of the project very well and I would not hesitate to use them again or to recommend them to other marketers.”
-Carlos Garza, La Lomita

“Lard Oil recently engaged Corner Capital Advisors on two projects, first to assist in an acquisition opportunity and the other to manage the process to refinance our Sr. term and revolver facilities. The CCA team brought a wealth of knowledge and expertise and did so under our strict timelines and expectations. I have no reservations about recommending their firm and intend to engage with them as other opportunities present themselves.”
-Johnny Milazzo, President and CEO – Lard Oil Co., Denham Springs, LA

“Corner Capital demonstrated patience and persistence in our negotiations over a year’s time, solving a complex structuring project. The end result was a tremendous amount of value and a great long-term relationship.”
