A roll-up is the consolidation of several smaller businesses into one larger operation. Generally these businesses operate in a fragmented industry and lack strong management and capital. Combining forces can create efficiencies, marketing depth, buying power and access to less expensive expansion capital.
Any industry, particularly those having comfortable profit margins and a commonality of services, products and operations needs can be a roll-up candidate. It’s easy to see how major benefits can be reaped from volume purchasing, new technology, and perhaps most important, professional management.
A good example of a type of industry that easily fits the roll-up profile is the printing business. Other industries that make effective roll-up are hospitals, computer technology, staffing, and trade magazines. There is no end to the types of companies that lend themselves to a roll-up as long as the industry is fragmented and has the following characteristics:
RYS & CO. coordinates the entire consolidation process from the conceptual stage to the exit strategy. Set up the marriage, operating agreement, and the divorce or exit essentially.

RYS & CO. continues to assist throughout the consolidation process by serving as the in-house mergers and acquisition department, providing integration and strategic planning, operations assistance, industry updates, and serving as a board member.
