Selling a Business

Are You Ready to Sell Your Business?

The LaManna Alliance helps owners in the printing graphics, labels, packaging and converting business. Our focus is on helping you launch and execute a successful transition for yourself and your company.

We’ll help you during these two selling stages. You may want to take a moment and hear this episode of my podcast, The Printer's Edge, for my thoughts on when it's the best time to sell a printing business:

Over the decades, I’ve personally grown, bought and sold successful print companies. I know what works:

  • A willingness to operate in a framework of mutual transparency and respect;
  • An openness to trust the process;
  • A personal and financial commitment to work hard and follow through;
  • A burning desire to make positive changes in yourself and your business.


Know Your Numbers 

Want to sell your company, but don’t know your company’s worth or the market’s outlook? If you're looking for a traditional valuation, then click here.

Maybe you want to get bigger for a future sale. A great tool for strategic growth is our online assessment, The Value Builder System (VBS).

Don't worry. It's painless.

It’s completely free to go through the VBS and receive your baseline results. First, you will gain access to the online questionnaire. Complete it accurately and truthfully.

It's an investment of about 15 to 20 minutes. You be evaluated in 12 different areas and will receive valuation information and more.

Success Stories

“I had been approached by a buyer who offered me a price. I had a valuation performed through the LaManna Alliance.  It turns out I had undervalued the business by 2x the market multiple!  I was about to leave a serious amount of cash on the table. I countered the sellers price — much to my benefit.” 

Transaction in Progress

Seller Success Stories

"In 2007 I attended the SGIA show in New Orleans. At the time I signed up for a few seminars and one of which regarded business sale and acquisitions. Rock was the expert giving that seminar. I became extremely impressed with his knowledge and understanding of the printing industry, people and business. At the conclusion I approached him about helping me. 

I listed my business with Rock’s guidance. Later I was successful in selling my business. Rocks’ expertise that I learned in the process has been instrumental to my decision making ever since. The things he told me were going to happen were accurate and came true. The deal was a success and I have happily moved on to achieve other goals. Thanks largely to Rock.

I have spend 32 years in printing and Rock is as knowledgeable as anyone in the business. I recommend him to anyone."

“I had the opportunity to partner with Rock LaManna in the sale of a Label printing business that was located in Oklahoma, my home state. I have been selling businesses for over 33 years but didn’t know a lot about the Label printing business, nor who the major players were. Rock not only introduced me to the business but also through his knowledge and contacts throughout the industry located the perfect buyer for our client. I certainly appreciate Rock’s expertise and understanding of the industry and hope we can collaborate again.”

“I worked with Rock on the sale of two companies in the printing industry in which he owned interests, both with EBITDA in the lower middle market range and he was an active and thoughtful participant in both transactions who approached the transactions creatively and offered solutions to achieve a successful outcome for both parties.”
