Entrepreneurs Kim and Rhonda Wheelwright grew their contract manufacturer, Global Health Industries, beyond their expectations, shifting its focus to probiotics and building a world-class management team.

CWC ran a full auction process with buyers best suited to understand GHI’s strategic value, helped create analytics to highlight its growth, and positioned around trouble customers and other concerns to enhance valuation.

Ultimately, GHI was sold for a premium to a buyer excited to own the company’s capabilities, infrastructure and quality reputation.

The transaction structure allowed the Wheelwrights to retire while day-to-day management retained their roles and equity, achieving the goals of each participant.
