Trinity M, LLC. was also relied on by Sylvan corporate to be part of several pilot programs and major initiatives.

Moon Kim, Managing Director of V-AID Investment, commented, “Sylvan is one of the leading brands in the tutoring industry. They have helped many children and their families worldwide as our children had to adapt to distance learning during the Covid-19 pandemic. The sellers in this transaction are a shining example of how planning your exit with the help of a business broker and M&A Advisor like V-AID Business Investment can truly maximize the sale price of one’s business. When the owners initially decided to put the business on the market 4 years ago, it was valued at one-fourth of what it sold for. When Covid 19 hit, the owners decided to double down in marketing and increase their market share even with a slowdown in revenue. As a result, they were able to grow their revenue over triple-digit percentage points and increase the valuation of their business by 4 times the original amount. The selling price was achievable by planning ahead with an exit strategy and great teamwork from the V-AID team and the sellers.”
