Woodbridge Closes Sale of EMSI to Tregaron Capital

February 4, 2010

Woodbridge is pleased to announce the sale of

its client, Idaho-based Economic Modeling Specialists Inc. (EMSI) to Tregaron Capital, a Palo Alto-based private equity firm.

EMSI is a leading supplier of user-friendly labor statistics and economic impact studies to users in the U.S., U.K. and the Middle East. Tregaron invests in small to mid-sized companies with EBITDA between $1 million and $5 million. The firm’s focus is on providing mezzanine debt and equity capital for growth and owner liquidity as well as strategic support to achieve the next level of success.

By marketing EMSI broadly to both strategic and financial buyers, Woodbridge generated interest in the company among a variety of quality acquirers. EMSI decided Tregaron was the best fit and would facilitate growing the company to a new level of performance.

Woodbridge worked with EMSI from the beginning of the process to completion of the transaction.

“Components of our marketing machine include extensive research, mailing to thousands of potential buyers, telephone follow-up to each one, and global marketing when appropriate,” said Robert Koenig, president of Woodbridge Group.

Woodbridge, LLC., an international M&A firm, was founded in 1993 to provide divestiture and acquisition services to middle market companies.
