XPS Group. Timely and accurate business assessments.
XPS Group is a boutique professional services firm specializing in business valuation and M&A advisory services for primarily privately held businesses on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland. Since 2006, we’ve helped owners accurately assess the value of their businesses, grow through strategic acquisitions, obtain debt and equity financing, and maximize returns during a sale.
Business Valuations. We are known for our independent, expert reports on the value of business assets or shares:
It is never easy going through a division of corporate interests, but working with Mark and XPS Group made it easier for me.
— Mike Achtem, Principal, Islander Engineering
Business purchase and sale discussions can be a sensitive matter that an owner may not want to discuss in detail with management. I would call Mark up and jokingly refer to him as “my therapist” as I found it brought clarity to run my thought process past him as we worked to position the Cashline business for a strategic sale.
— Steve Clark, Former Owner, Cashline
Trust is central to the M&A process. The XPS team earned my trust, our banker’s trust, and the trust of the leadership in the companies I acquired. The XPS team’s thorough knowledge of the M&A process, and their ability to communicate effectively with me, my shareholders, and our legal team, saw us safely through several multi-million dollar international acquisitions. And, their extensive list of qualified investors enabled us to close a sale to a USA-based equity firm, to the lasting satisfaction of our shareholders. The buyer’s analysts attributed additional credibility to our data, because XPS vetted it.
— Warren Brown, Former Chairman and majority shareholder, Procura Homecare Software
I built my business from scratch and had never been through a sale before. I’m so happy that my accountant referred me to Mark when I had a health scare and wanted to sell. He managed all the people involved and gave me peace of mind with his advice along the way.
— David Lee, Former Owner, IB Distributors
I am very grateful to have met Mark. He navigated me and other stakeholders through a shareholder re-purchase agreement with a family member, over the course of several years. At the outset, I asked Mark to always place our family relationships at the forefront of our priorities. He exceeded my expectations. Mark is a leader and conscientious adviser. He handled this project as a professional, with sensitivity to my intentions and goals. Our agreement between family members concluded very successfully; thanks in no small measure to Mark’s guidance.
— Bob Howe, Saltspring Island
I have engaged XPS Group a number of times over the years to assist with shareholder disputes. Their work is always of the highest quality, and has been instrumental in achieving out of court settlements.
— Greg Harney, Lawyer, Shields Harney
XPS Group has prepared a number of expert valuation assignments for us over the years including purchase price allocations, business valuations, annual intangible asset and goodwill impairment tests, and a fairness opinion. These expert reports have provided exceptional value to our group of companies and have been accepted and relied upon by our auditors and the Board of Directors.
— Trevor Hill, Chairman, Global Water Resources, Inc. (GWRS: NASDAQ)
