Robert H. Perry & Associates, Incorporated
(RHPA) was founded by Robert H. Perry in 1977. Prior to starting
the firm, Mr. Perry was a partner in a Certified Public Accounting
firm where he advised corporate clients in areas of taxation,
auditing and general managerial matters. RHPA was originally formed
as an intermediary boutique managing the sale of companies in
the general middle market sector.
Our experience in managing the sale of private security companies
began in 1981, when we managed the sale of a privately-held contract security company to a New York Stock Exchange conglomerate. Through
our involvement in this sale, we realized that the contract security industry was beginning a consolidation period that would (and
has) lasted for several years. The owners of these companies who
wanted to sell needed a professional firm to represent them; one
that is without conflict of interest with the buyer population;
one that can advise on the expected price before putting the company
on the market; and one that has the experience to manage the unique
selling process and confidentiality aspects for contract security companies.
“We became the only firm that could offer these
services to the contract security industry.”
In 2004, at the request of several international multi-services
security conglomerates, we extended our transaction management
expertise to the security systems integration and central station
alarm sector and created a new division to serve owners of companies
in these industries.
