Exclusive financial advisor to The Cleaning Authority, LLC
KPMG Corporate Finance LLC acted as the exclusive financial advisor to The Cleaning Authority, LLC
The Cleaning Authority, LLC (TCA or the Company) is a nationally-recognized franchisor of residential cleaning businesses with 183 franchised service territories in the US and Canada. Founded in 1977, the Company has positioned itself as a leader in the green home cleaning market serving over 80,000 customers in the US and Canada. TCA has developed a high-recurring revenue franchise model which provides franchisees with training, operational support, proprietary software systems and the development and delivery of highly effective marketing programs.
Given favorable market conditions, TCA retained KPMG Corporate Finance LLC (KPMG CF) as its exclusive financial advisor to explore its strategic alternatives including a dividend recapitalization and sale of the Company. KPMG CF leveraged its deep business services, cleaning and consumer industry expertise and relationships to market the transaction to strategic and financial buyers. By positioning the Company to highlight its strong franchise performance, brand name and attractive growth story, KPMG CF was able to attract significant buyer interest.
“The KPMG team provided excellent guidance and resources throughout the sales process. We appreciated their focus on the long term success of our company by always being considerate of our organization’s needs after the transaction. Their professionalism and counsel was second to none and we would not hesitate to work with this team again in the future.” – Rob Weddle, CEO of TCA
